The most common strategy to control halite is fresh water addition upstream of deposition to dilute the problem. While chemical inhibitors for halite control have existed for some years, they usually required high concentrations of environmentally undesirable products. New production in the US, such as in the Bakken and the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, has resulted in more production of saline fluids. The Bakken region has already had a profound impact. Application of SCALETREAT HL at 80ppm was able to reduce water consumption to 10% of that of the incumbent strategy with a return of investment of nearly 1,000%.
SCALETREAT products also address the challenges associated with the production of acidic crude oil containing high levels of naphthenic acid. Clariant Oil Services has expert personnel that will help you define the problem caused by naphthenates, and develop the optimum treatment solution to ensure your operation runs at maximum efficiency.
