Flow Assurance Solids in Oil and Gas Production

Jon Steinar Gudmundsson
September 07, 2017

The precipitation and deposition of solids are a major challenge in the production of oil and gas. Flow assurance solids are formed because of unavoidable changes in temperature, pressure and composition of the oil-gas-water flowstream, from reservoir conditions to processing conditions. The advent...
