Paraffin and Asphaltene Control
Paraffin is a hydrocarbon compound that often precipitates on production equipment as a result of changing temperatures and pressures within the producing system. It is normally found in the tubing close to the surface of the well, or in the flow lines, but it can also form at the perforations—even in the formation, in depleted reservoirs and in wells that have undergone extensive hot oiling or hot watering treatments.
Asphaltenes, on the other hand, are organic materials that exist as an aromatic agglomerate, stabilized by resin molecules.
Paraffin and asphaltene deposition in production and transmission equipment can result in loss of production due to build-up causing:
Plugged tubulars which will restrict or prevent flow
Blocked perforations and pore spaces
Rod, pump, and valve failures
We design paraffin and asphaltene control chemicals to remove existing deposits in the production system and prevent further precipitation. We offer an extensive line of paraffin control compounds that will allow us to keep your production volumes up.
