Abstract

Aim: This study was aimed to analyze the physical and chemical compositions of the solid deposits recovered from water injection wells in Niger Delta area of Nigeria.

Method and Materials: Solid deposit samples were recovered from five water injection wells TA1, TA2, TA3, TA4 and TA5 respectively within Niger Delta area, Nigeria at two different periods of the year ten months apart. Samples were collected with a clean plastic bottle.  The chemical compositions of samples from the same well were determined at the same time.

Results: Solid deposit recovered from water injection well TA1 has the highest percentage weight (% wt) hydrocarbon as well as carbonate indicating the presence of Magnesium (Mg) and Calcium (Ca) scales while solid deposit from water injection well TA3 has the highest % wt SiO2 indicating the presence of sand particles.

Conclusion: It was concluded the presence of hydrocarbons, carbonates, SiO2 and acid insoluble components in different quantities.
