The common surface chemical applications cannot reach or have low efficiency due to high fluid levels. This paper Introduces a new chemical technology for all types of artificial lift systems that guarantees an efficient downhole treatment at the entry point and summarizes the applications of this revolutionary method established to deliver chemical combinations by microencapsulating the compounds and packaging the completed formulation in a chemical screen that is placed at the bottom of the tubing (BHA) below any type of artificial lift systems. The new downhole Chemical treatment technology were designed and successfully applied in 3 wells in the Permian Basin to control scale and corrosion. The installation of the chemical tool is easily made up below the pump intake and not additional equipment is needed in the pump or in the surface facilities.
