Creating Custom Chemistry for Oil-and-Gas Production

By Mary Page Bailey |

The complex demands of oil-and-gas production often require the development of customized chemical technologies, and CPI companies are rising to meet these challenges The oil-and-gas and chemical process industries (CPI) are interconnected in that the oil-and-gas sector provides many of the raw materials that are the backbone for chemical manufacturing. However, the CPI also supplies many essential products for oil-and-gas production (Figure 1), from corrosion inhibitors to water-treatment chemicals and much more. As drilling and recovery technologies evolve, and market and regulatory demands place increased pressure on operators, CPI companies are developing technologies that are tailored to the needs of the oil-and-gas sector. Figure 1. A unique aspect of producing chemicals for the oil-and-gas sector is that CPI companies have developed methodologies to tailor products for a customer’s specific situation[/caption] Adapting customized chemistries Due to the wide variety of complex chemistries encountered across the breadth of oil-and-gas operations, Clariant AG (Muttenz, Switzerland; www.clariant.com) has been able to leverage technologies used in different specialty chemicals segments to benefit oil-and-gas producers. “Customers…
