Caliper Logging of Calcite Scale in Dixie Valley Wellbores

Basic Information
Author: Dick Benoit
Description:During production, the Dixie Valley wells produce calcium carbonate scale as a result of patial flash in the wellbores. A relativiely simple analysis is presented to five an estimate of the carbonate scaling rates in the Dixie Valley production wells and of the amounts of fluid and time that can pass before it becomes necessary to clean out the wellbores.
