Removing And Preventing Asphaltene Wax And Paraffin Deposits

Forming of asphalt, resin and paraffin deposits leads to well production rate decrease, premature failure of expensive equipment and additional well servicing. Polyex company offers the range of chemicals for removing asphalt, resin and paraffin deposits and for preventing of their forming. During the production of heavy oils the increase in pressure in pipeline equipment may be observed. Strong pressure differences between the tubing base and the wellhead cause deformation of the pumps and constrains oil production. Thus, the production of heavy oils also leads to equipment failure. Periodic cleaning of the equipment is necessary because of the formation of paraffin plugs. To reduce the pour point of oils and improve their rheological properties some viscosity reducers, pour point depressants, are used.

Technologies and chemicals for removing and preventing of asphalt, resin and paraffin deposits, oil viscosity reducing:

  1. Technology of asphaltene, resin and paraffin deposits dissolving with NEFRAS-M solvent.

  2. Technology of protection of equipment with POLYDEX 07POLYDEX® AP 07PROCHINOR® AP 104 inhibitors showing dispersing force for asphaltene, resin and paraffin deposits and improving crude oil rheology.

  3. Technology of reducing the pour point of oils and reducing their viscosity with the application of FLOWDIN® pour point depressants.

  4. Technology of treatment with POLYPAV chemical for cleaning of the equipment and prevention of asphaltene, resin and paraffin deposits.
