Oil & Gas Solutions
Oil & Gas
b. Oil with high paraffin content
c. Reverse Osmosis Pre-treatment
d. Water Flooding
a. Calcium Carbonate scale can collect inside and foul cooling systems of rig mounted compressors.
b. Untreated water used to produce steam to heat paraffin to separate paraffin from oil.
c. Untreated water used in RO water production can reduce efficiency and output.
d. When water flooding, injecting untreated hard water can cause a reaction with the formation
water damaging the formation. This is due to the presence of calcium carbonate in hard water.
Scale deposits in the formation during the flooding sealing the fractures in the formation after a
period of time.
Acid and other caustic chemicals are often used to eliminate the scale build up
in the formation.
Hard water requires expensive corrosive chemicals to clean scaling from pipelines.
Production time is lost when systems are shut down for descaling.
Chemicals used for descaling are harmful to environment.
Benefits from using Fluid Dynamics solutions:
Reduction in downtime so revenue is increased.
Reduction in chemicals used to maintain compressors.
No power needed.
No environmentally damaging chemicals needed to clean scale.
Compressors run more efficiently with less restrictions due to scaling.
Increase in R.O. pure water production and decrease in brine backwash.
Decrease in pump energy usage.
