Xstrata Energy Technologies carries the necessary certifications to perform field surveillance and can work with operators and service companies to achieve an optimization of chemical treatments for your system.
The application of chemistries in the oil and gas industry is required and essential for most operations. However, the use of chemistries can be very expensive and all applications need to be optimized to conserve cost and achieve maximum production and operation. Therefore, when using chemistries in your operation whether produced water treatment, microbial control, or corrosion control, it is essential to:
At Xstrata Energy Technologies, we have designed laboratory bench scale testing systems that have represented operation in the field. This lends a significant advantage to our clients by providing an operation ready chemical treatment package that will reduce costs and improve operational performance.
We provide simple screening tests to identify viable chemistries and applications to complex evaluations for an operational treatment package for a specific chemistry. Secondly, we also perform 3rd party verification of recommended treatments for operators. Biocides Testing: Tests are conducted according to NACE TMO194-14
"Biocides are the least understood chemistry in the oil and gas industry and are typically applied improperly in most applications because virtually no optimized testing is done to determine the right application and location and the limitation of the biocides are not openly published."
Sessile Bacterial tests - Bench scale Customized Testing Include:
Planktonic Bacterial tests (NACE TMO194-14)
Corrosion Inhibitor Testing according to ASTM G170, G184, G18
