End-to-end process solutions offer product reliability
WITH PROVEN PERFORMANCE SPECIFIC TO DEEPWATER PRODUCTION

Clariant adopts a holistic view when working collaboratively with our customers. We start by analyzing the risks and issues within the operating environment of our customers and then identify their root causes. The chemical solution is designed, developed, tested, and tried in the lab where the known complexities can be modeled and replicated in order for the technology to be proven before it is taken to a customer’s operating environment.

Under High Pressure
WE WORK BEST

A market leader in Deepwater applications, Clariant Oil Services has a proven track record in the most challenging Deepwater environments, including the Gulf of Mexico, Brazil, and West Africa.

Because of high pressure and high temperature (HPHT) environments known in Deepwater operations, the robust processes are used for proactive risk management, product quality control and surveillance and monitoring

  • To reduce risk, increase speed of execution, and improve operational reliability, we developed the DepFlux® (DF) suite of chemical technologies made suitable for deployment via Deepwater umbilicals.
  • All DepFlux chemicals undergo a rigorous certification process to ensure that they remain stable for extended periods under both the highest and lowest temperatures that will be experienced in the Deepwater subsea environment.
  • Clariant’s certification process is comprised of a battery of laboratory tests designed to meet the performance, compatibility, and stability standards recommended by the American Petroleum Institute’s Blockage Avoidance in Subsea Injection and Control Systems (BASICS) Joint Industry Project (JIP). Clariant assesses all products for compliance with health, safety, and environmental legislation before they are taken to market.
