INHIBITION CASE STUDY
MS306Bpp is a solvent-based, oil soluble chemical formulation for use in crude oil and condensate to control paraffin deposition. It is also a wax crystal modifier/pour point depressant that inhibits the gelation of the oil. The MS306Bpp is winterized and optimized for continuous injection in process facilities and downhole applications.
There was a flow assurance issue where condensate stabilizers were swinging – the stabilizer was reading high levels due to foulant buildup on the stage valves. VerdeChem field trialed the MS306Bpp to solve the problem. Chemical injection was started at the feed drum that carries over into the reboiler and stabilizer tower.
Below is a before and after comparison of the Stage Valves pre and post injection:
