A forty foot well annulus simulator is used to determine the flow and fate of the applied chemical inhibitors for typical backside batch and flush application in a packerless completion. The delivery depends upon both chemical parameters such as density, viscosity, and surface tension as well as flush parameters including volume and rate.
Sour service behavior of a 110ksi material was investigated in a range of production environments. Slow strain rate tests were performed at a strain rate of 510-7/s, in sweet as well as in sour production environments. The strain to failure in sweet environments is lower than the in-air values and is substantially lower in the presence of H2S.
