In the production of crude oil, the greatest part of the crude oil occurs as a water-in-oil emulsion. The composition of the continuous phase depends on the water/oil ratio; the natural emulsifiers contained in crude oils have complex chemical structure, so that to overcome their effect, petroleum-emulsion demulsifiers must be selectively developed. As a new oil field are developed, and as the production conditions change at older fields, there is a constant need for demulsifiers that lead to a rapid separation into water and oil, as well as minimal-residual water and salt mixtures.
Corrosion inhibitors, which are used for protection of oil pipelines, are often complex mixtures. Corrosion problems may occur in numerous systems in the petroleum industry. ACPA offers a wide range from corrosion inhibitors in the three phases (gas, oil and water) in operating environment and the ability to inhibit the system to maintain low level of corrosion.
Some risk of scale deposition occurs in many operations in the petroleum industry. Scale deposition happens particularly in production, simulation and transport. Scaling can occur when a solution becomes supersaturated, which occurs mostly if the temperature changes in the course of injection operations. Also, if two chemicals that will form a precipitate are brought together, a scale is formed. ACPA scale inhibitors prevent the formation of different scales (carbonate & sulfate) and their precipitation on the internal surfaces of the pipelines.
Wax precipitation in the mobile bulk fluid causes an increase in the viscosity of the fluid, if enough wax precipitates, pumpability and restart after shut down can be affected. During transport of fluid through a pipeline a gradual build up of wax on the pipe wall will cause a decrease in the internal diameter of the pipe even if no solidification of the bulk fluid occurs. These chemicals inhibit the association of wax crystals with each other and their attachment to surfaces. They are often comprised of a surfactant type chemical in conjunction with an aromatic solvent to aid solubility of some paraffin waxes. ACPA has a wide range from Paraffin dispersant suitable to solve any problems of paraffin in the oil system.
A crude oil system can become unstable because of changes in hydrocarbon composition, pressure, or temperature during normal production from the reservoir or during commingling with dissimilar crude oils. These changes can generate asphaltene particles that can result in significant production and refining problems. The generation of these particles is a two-step process: phase separation and asphaltene particle growth. Phase separation occurs when nanosize asphaltene particles from the crude oil precipitate and grow into large aggregates. ACPA asphaltene dispersants prevent this grow of aggregates, ACPA offers many types of asphaltene dispersants and technical supports for any of this problems.
Pour Point Depressant
Pour-point Depressant (PPD) is a petroleum-product additive that lowers the temperature at which oil ceases to flow, Or an additive that retards wax crystallization and lowers the pour point, the pour point depressants are crystal modifiers, tend to co-precipitate with paraffin crystals and prevent them from forming structured fluid. This will help to reduce: pour point, viscosity, Yield value and Adhesiveness of paraffin to a pipe surface. ACPA present different types of liquid and solid Pour-point Depressant (PPD) to satisfying your purposes.
Biocide is a broad spectrum anti-microbial agent designed to prevent the growth of microorganisms in fuel storage tanks. Biocide inhibits the growth of sulfate reducing bacteria, algae and fungi as well as a host of other microorganisms, including aerobic and anaerobic bacteria algae, molds and yeasts. ACPA Biocide is the best choice to solve your problems with sulfate reducing bacteria (SRB).

Oil Spill Dispersant
Chemical dispersants can be used to reduce the interfacial tension of floating oil slicks so that the oils disperse more rapidly into the water column and thus pose less of a threat to shorelines, birds, and marine mammals. The action of oil spill-treating agent goes beyond simply dispersing the spilled oil. In particular, oil spill treating agents can be divided in to four classes: solidifiers, demulsifying agents, surface-washing agents, and dispersants. The majority of oil spill-treating agents, however, are described as dispersants. ACPA gives very effective oil soluble and water soluble products, which are biodegradable. These products are certified for both efficiency and toxicity level.
High concentration of H2S is considered to be dangerous to life and health. It is possible to use a scavenger to remove high concentrations of H2S and this may be the best choice for a short-term need especially if capital cost can be minimized through continuous injection. ACPA staff can assist you to identify and select the most cost-effective chemical for your facility. Also, ACPA staff can assist you for applying the scavenger treatments, and monitor the results to ensure optimum performance.
