It is non-corrosive, environmentally friendly and economically competitive as it replaces or minimizes the currently used chemicals (corrosion and scaling inhibitors, demulsifiers
, viscosity improvers, etc.
The Atlas Point facility produces surfactants, emulsifiers and demulsifiers
used in consumer products and for industrial purposes.
KNPC has coordinated and worked with the authority specialized in radiations in the country on measuring radiation rates in the demulsifiers
of heavy crude reactors, where the fire broke out, Al-Asousi, who is also KNPC's Deputy CEO for Support Services, noted.
Thermodynamic hydrate inhibitors, low-dosage hydrate inhibitors (LDHI), defoamers, asphaltene inhibitors, paraffin inhibitors, scale inhibitors, H2S scavengers, chemical demulsifiers
and drag-reducing agents fall under chemical solutions.
The British author explains the chemical foundations for water and gas control, scale control, asphaltene control, acid stimulation, sand control, corrosion control during production, gas hydrate control, wax control, demulsifiers
, foam control, flocculants, biocides, scavengers, and drag-reducing agents.
At present, the research center is focusing on 10 highly necessary materials including DRA, corrosion retardants, drilling cement additives and demulsifiers
," Shokrollahzadeh said, noting that the research center is facing sanctions due to its connection with the oil sector.
They discuss tribological, nanotribological, molecular packing, and mechanical properties of silane, thio, phthalocyanine, and phospholipid films, membranes, grafts, and self-assembled monolayers on gold, silica, and graphite substrates, and water-in-oil emulsions used as oil well drilling fluids, wetting and tribological properties of organized surfactant assemblies and aqueous solutions of alkyl polyglucosides, surfactants as demulsifiers
in enhanced crude oil production from old wells, and oil-in-water emulsions with biobased surfactants.
Surfaces coated with hydrophobins have been suggested for use as demulsifiers
, evaporation retardants and soiling inhibitors (U.
of Stavanger, Norway) covers the chemical foundations for water and gas control, scale control, asphaltene control, acid stimulation, sand control, corrosion control during production, gas hydrate control, wax control, demulsifiers
, foam control, flocculants, biocides, scavengers and drag-reducing agents.
Lu, "The Resolution of Water-in-Crude Oil Emulsions by the Addition of Low Molar Mass Demulsifiers
," Journal of Colloid and Interface Science 139, 128-138 (1990).
The aqueous cleaning agents used today for parts cleaning are formulated as demulsifiers
There was also a lack of demulsifiers
, chemicals used to separate high salt content out of wet crude oils.
