Enhanced Oil Recovery
Solutions for Phase Separation, Flow Assurance & Asset Integrity
CHEMISTRY AT YOUR SERVICE
Dow understands that operators will continue to face mounting processing challenges and we are ready to assist with an R&D commitment to develop more effective production chemistries necessary for today's ever changing and demanding oilfield challenges. We continue to develop and introduce chemistries that achieve oilfield production success – meeting production targets and regulations, ensuring efficient flow assurance and maintaining asset integrity.
Achieving phase separation in production operations
With more than 45 years of experience in phase separation chemistry, Dow has harnessed the depths of interfacial science technology to create chemistries that assist with oil-water separation and can control the gas-liquid interface.
In the three-phase separator, excessive foaming caused by a high gas-to-oil ratio can cause equipment shutdowns leading to lost production time. Harnessing the industry leading expertise in Dow Corning, Dow’s DOW CORNING™ and XIAMETER™ antifoams can reduce this downtime and allow increased production. Alternatively, breaking crude oil/water emulsions is also a critical step in the oil production process for meeting production targets, adhering to commercial crude oil specifications and yielding cleaner produced water for discharge or reinjection. Customers can count on DEMTROL™ crude oil demulsifiers, or emulsion breaker bases from Dow to help produce the most cost-effective solutions possible.
The tightening supply of fresh water is one of the factors driving the oil and gas industry to seek new solutions for reducing oil in water prior to discharge that has led Dow’s development of the ROMAX™ Water Clarifier product line. Romax products help separate oil from produced water and reverse (oil-in-water) emulsions, which serve to protect both the environment and production equipment.
PROTECT PRODUCTION ASSETS WITH DOW CHEMISTRY
Dow offers chemistries and raw materials to help protect producers’ assets from the effects of microbial degradation and corrosion, both downhole and topside.
PROTECT YOUR PRODUCTION ASSETS WITH DOW’S INNOVATIVE CHEMISTRIES
Our ACCENT™ Scale Inhibitors prevent scale formation in downhole water conditions encountered in today’s demanding environments and are designed to perform in complex production waters and extreme, high temperature/high pressure conditions. Likewise, ACCENT T Scale inhibitors perform identical to their ACCENT counterparts but also utilize an effective tagging technology that measures the “free” polymers available for scale inhibition. In situations where scale has already formed and become a problem, Dow’s experience in scale remover chelating technology is an effective option when compared to alternative and harsher acidization treatments.
Our new wax control portfolio contains distinct water and oil based ACCENT Wax inhibitor and Pour Point Depressant Technologies including offerings for cold environments where freeze protection is required. In addition, Dow offers wax dispersant products for helping to minimize paraffin buildup and promote uninterrupted flow of crude oil from production to processing.
We want to be your total options supplier for all flow assurance needs, providing innovative options for the challenges of today and tomorrow.
