ABSTRACT
Flow assurance is a major concern to the petroleum industry, characterised by the numeroustechnical problems related to the dynamic nature of the produced effluents or by-products. Theseproblems change gradually throughout the field’s life, periodically requiring adjustment of thesolution. To mismanage is not only costly but can be devastating to the economics of a field. Flowassurance has been an emerging multi-disciplinary subject addressing the hydrocarbon productionfrom offshore fields. The problem of plugging of production lines by hydrates, asphaltenes, paraffinor scales is considered, by operating companies, as one of the major problems in the developmentof oil/gas fields.This paper systematically presents an analytical model developed for predicting productivity ofreservoir with incidence of scale deposition in the vicinity of horizontal wellbore.
