Paraffin Control Technologies

REDUCE PARAFFIN BUILD-UP AND INCREASE POUR POINTS DURING PRODUCTION AND STORAGE

Paraffin control solutions that enhance performance at reduced dose rates
KEEP PRODUCTION IN FLOW

Crude oils naturally contain saturated hydrocarbon fractions also called wax or paraffin. During production, the crude cools down as it flows from the hot reservoir to the cooler surface. During this cooling process, wax crystallization can occur resulting in wax deposition and/or a subsequent increase in viscosity – making it more difficult, if not impossible for the oil to flow uniformly though the pipeline. The effects of this wax deposition and build-up create constant and costly problems. in reservoir, wellbore, production tubing and surface flow lines.

Clariant Oil Services’ innovative and customizable chemical technologies deliver paraffin control solutions that enhance performance at significantly reduced dose rates, alleviating paraffin build-up in pipeline systems.

Benefits

Our range of solvents, cold flow improvers, dispersants, crystal modifiers, pour point depressants (PPD) and viscosity reducers effectively address your paraffin-related production challenges to deliver:

  • reduced or prevented downhole paraffin deposition and formation
  • increased production through removal of paraffin blockage
  • improved plant operating efficiency
  • reduction of pour point for paraffinic hydrocarbons
  • improved separator efficiency
  • reduction in OPEX
