Extend the Life of Your Pipeline with an Effective Preventative Maintenance Program
At Clariant Oil Services, we are proactive solution-seekers committed to extending the life of your pipeline through creative problem-solving. We offer a wide range of innovative products and services to meet your needs, including custom chemical solutions and expert technical support, corrosion and integrity management expertise, proven cleaning and hydrotesting technologies. Because innovation is nothing without delivery, our technical specialists will work with your pipeline operators and safety managers to customize and implement a pipeline integrity management program that meets your needs and complies with your specific guidelines, today and in the future.
Clariant Oil Services' SURFTREAT® surfactants and wetting agent technologies are specifically formulated for pipeline cleaning. The SURFTREAT product line is a unique concentrated blend of dispersants and degreasers that decreases the total chemical volume transported, which greatly reduces operating costs and increases profitability. In addition, Clariant's SURFTREAT® cleaning products are specifically formulated for both online and offline cleaning of pipelines.
Testing the integrity of a new or refurbished pipeline prior to commissioning is critical in identifying defects or damage that could result in failure. The water used in a hydrotest can come from a variety of sources and may contain corrosive agents and bacteria that will negatively impact the integrity of the pipeline metallurgy. These negative effects increase when that water remains in the line for an expanded length of time, causing pitting damage and localized corrosion. To protect equipment from the damaging effects of corrosion, Hydrotest water should be treated with chemical inhibitors. Clariant Oil Services' MULTITREAT products are suitable for use in a wide range of applications. Our technical experts in corrosion and integrity management will work with your engineers and safety managers to custom-design and implement a hydrotest program that meets your unique needs.
Flow assurance is crucial for safe, continuous product movement throughout the operational life of pipelines. Deposits such as iron sulfide, iron oxide, wax, asphaltene, hydrate, ice and sand can form reducing or completely obstructing flow, limiting oil and gas production. Clariant Oil Services has a range of chemical technologies across multiple product lines that deliver solutions for these flowline and pipeline flow assurance challenges. Our focus is to provide high quality chemistry coupled with extensive knowledge of Upstream and Downstream issues that most economically optimize production and minimize the impact on the environment.
Clariant Oil Services specializes in the development of tailored solutions for each individual asset to ensure pipelines meet or exceed their intended lifetime specification. Our integrity laboratories around the world are constantly developing cutting-edge products and solutions to meet any corrosion challenge, from low shear and high shear to sweet and sour environments. Clariant’s CORRTREAT product line coupled with state-of-the-art corrosion monitoring techniques and services is essential to clearly diagnose problems that may be occurring while ensuring that the optimum integrity management solution is delivered.
Let Clariant Oil Services help you extend the life of your pipeline by working together to build an effective preventative maintenance program that will reduce operational risks, ensure pipeline flow while improving your total cost of operations.
