Process facilities for the separation of hydrocarbons from produced water in the oilfield are critical to flow assurance, product quality and environmental compliance. The formation of metal naphthenates, which are emulsion stabilizers and equipment foulers, is deleterious to performance and integrity of these processes and facilities. Manual removal of deposits of these organic salts formed at the oil–water interface during separation processes is difficult and expensive; hence, the best operational option is inhibition.
PARAGROUP wide range of inhibitor and dispersant chemistries are designed to manage formation of naphthenate emulsions and scale at low dosage rates to increase operational efficiency, prevent downtime and loss of revenue. Our combination of global experience, local expertise and customized advanced solutions deliver sustainable benefits and maintains profitability of operations.
