Asphaltene Management

Asphaltene inhibitors control precipitation and deposition from crude oil. Specialist expertise and treatments mitigate the flow assurance challenges caused by asphaltene precipitation, such as plugs and deposits in the formation, tubing, separators, and other parts of the system.

Chemya Asphaltene Inhibitors interfere with the precipitation and flocculation of the asphaltene aggregates, preventing them from depositing. They can be squeezed or continuously injected upstream of the asphaltene onset pressure. Precipitated asphaltenes can also interfere with other parts of the process system, e.g. water separation and treatment. Designing the correct solution can alleviate the contribution of asphaltenes to separation and water quality issues.
