mixed deposits

1. n. [Enhanced Oil Recovery]
A blend of organic and inorganic compounds such as scales, silts or clays. Migrating fines that become oil-wet often become targets for organic deposits, thereby creating a mixed deposit. Mixed deposits are considered a type of damage. Treating this type of deposit requires a dual-solvent system composed of an aromatic hydrocarbon and an acid.
