Wax Deposition

Wax High risk in long lines in cold environments, special concern for deepwater production

Example

Example Wax Deposit

Typical

Typical Inhibitor Result
LESS wax, but HARDER Inhibitors block just mid-range paraffins

Unique

Unique "Cold Disk" Wax Deposit Apparatus
Wax deposits on cold plate Stirring models pipe flow Advantages: Small Samples,Quick Results

No

No Inhibitor
MORE wax, but a SOFTER wax forms when there is no inhibitor present.

Surfactant

Surfactant Technology --Block Deposition of Heavy Wax

Wax

Wax Deposition less for Surfactants - Creating Low IFT

PEER Technology -- Organic Deposit Control:

1. Unique measurement capabilities
2. Reproduce real pipeline phenomena
3. New chemicals for wax control
4. Scientific studies -- inhibition mechanisms
