Treat Your Heavy Oil Demands Successfully

Heavy crude oils have a specific gravity, often approaching that of water and are often not free-flowing or at least do not flow easily. In addition, they generally carry high contents of asphaltenes, heavy metals, sulfur and nitrogen.

The pursuit for heavy oil production is becoming more prevalent as the world’s energy demand increases and previously “unattractive” crude oils become economically viable to produce and process. Operators are faced with specific challenges for production, transportation and refining of heavy crudes such as:

  • Crude oil dehydration
  • Produced water disposal quality
  • Low flow rates due to viscosity
  • Contaminant removal

Improving Our Environmental Footprint

Because heavy crude oils are more difficult to handle, the impact on the environment can be much more significant. At Clariant Oil Services we are dedicated to developing environmentally-acceptable products that deliver optimal performance at the lowest cost.

Our experts focus on providing effective chemical solutions that are in compliance with environmental regulations. In many cases, we have successfully replaced harmful products with our innovative chemical technologies to improve environmental impact while maintaining or improving system performance.

  • Increase production by increasing flow levels in heavy oil applications

    Heavy crude oil can contain a high paraffin and asphaltene content that reduces flow and lowers production rates. Molecules can also cause oil to become viscous and difficult to transport.

    Clariant Oil Services is a leading provider of flow assurance technologies and offers many products designed to address the multitude of flow challenges associated with heavy oil.

    Our asphaltene inhibitors and dispersants are designed to prevent agglomeration and reduce solid formations for higher flow volumes. We also create products to emulsify heavy crudes to reduce the viscosity of heavy oils, boosting effective production. Clariant Oil Services develops various solvents to reduce heavy oil viscosity to improve and increase oil flow. We also engineer products to remove solid deposits, sand and clays from production tubing to increase flow levels.
