PRODUCTION CHEMICALS RANGE
During this stage of oil retrieval, hydrocarbons are extracted and the crude is separated; the liquid hydrocarbons and gas are recovered with the water and solids are also removed. We perceive that the production, separation and refining of crude oil needs to be accomplished quickly and economically.
A significant number of production chemicals are used throughout the production process that need to be compatible with the products used in the formation fluids and with the individual characteristics of each well.
Our advanced specialty chemical solutions / production fluids focus on high performing demulsification technologies, flow assurance chemistries for pipeline transportation as well as other products to extend equipment life cycle, saving cost and optimizing production. (Option for the above paragraph)
We provide a range of production / oilfield chemicals engineered to improve production performance and meet the challenges of changing global regulations & environmental concerns to ensure you maximize output from your wells.
Finished formulation capabilities:
At KAPL, we provide on-site testing as well as technical assistance in identifying & screening the right chemistries.
|1||POUR POINT DEPRESSANTS / CRUDE OIL FLOW IMPROVERS||These additives are polymers designed to interfere in the wax crystallization process, thus modifying the crystal structure of the paraffin present in the crude oil. The change in the crystal shape diminishes the ability of waxy aggregates to inter grow and inter lock, resulting in lowering the pour point of the crude.|
|2||PARAFFIN/ WAX DISPERSANTS||These additives are liquid, organic surface active chemical for use in crude oil to control the deposition of paraffin. The oil soluble and water dispersible formulation is effective in removing and preventing paraffin buildup in production equipment.|
|3||ASPHATENE DISPERSANTS||The asphaltenes in nature are stabilized by resins and maintained in the oil due to this stabilization. Asphaltene dispersants substitutes the natural resins do not allow the asphaltene particles to form bigger size molecules and deposit.It is based on polymeric technology with multiple anchoring groups and has chains that are compatible with the crude oil.|
|4||DEMULSIFIER CONCENTRATES||Demulsification of water from water in oil emulsions and removal of the water economically meeting the technical requirements of the oil for further processing is a very critical operation. Demulsifiers tend to act on the emulsion by:|
|5||DEOILERS / REVERSE EMULSIFIERS||These additives removes free/ emulsified oil from separated water in oil fields.|
|6||CORROSION INHIBITORS||These additives gets adsorbed on the metallic surface, protecting the metal surface by forming a film, giving the surface a certain level of protection.|
|7||H2S SCAVENGERS||These tie up with the H2S in an irreversible reaction preventing the release and thus reduces corrosion leading to improved safety. These products are designed to control H2S with bubble tower applications and/or continuous injections into the wellhead, infield or other transmission lines.|
|8||H2S SCAVANGER WITH SCALE INHIBITOR||This product is formulated to give excellent H2S scavenging characteristic with scale inhibition. It features an instantaneous reaction with hydrogen sulfide and is very effective even at low dosage rates. It effectively controls the scaling problem without any negative impact on downstream operations.|
|9||FOAM CONTROL AGENTS/ ANTIFOAM/ DEFOAMERS||An effective way to disrupt foam formation is to introduce a foam control surfactant into the system. A defoamer or an antifoam functions by spreading over the gas/liquid interfaces, thereby preventing foam forming materials from coming to the surface and providing a surface layer which will not sustain foam.|
|10||SLUDGE BREAKERS||These additives rapidly dissolves and fluidizes sludge, wax, gum and tar formations while effectively separating water from oil/water emulsions.|
|11||MUTUAL SOLVENTS||These additives prevents/ break emulsion block formation in the invasion zone in an oil well. It intern increases crude flow from the formation.|
