Production Chemicals

Roemex Production Chemicals provide quality products, designed specifically for our customers field requirements by our in-house technical specialists. Our chemicals provide economical, cost effective solutions which allow increases in productivity, cost reductions and HS&E benefits to our clients. We pride ourselves not only on the chemicals we design, manufacture and effectively apply in the field, but on our commitment to customer service through continuous evaluation and improvement of our processes, products and services.

A variety of chemicals, mainly of an organic nature, are used in enhancing production of oil and gas and mitigating problems associated with the production of oil and gas. Our production chemicals are used in the following ways:

  • DEMULSIFIERS provide improvement of produced water clarity to meet governmental specifications oil in water for overboard discharge
  • DEOILERS assist in the separation of oil, water (and gas) emulsions
  • CORROSION INHIBITORS protect production plant and associated flowlines, pipelines and metal structures from corrosive environments particularly sea water and produced water
  • SCALE INHIBITORS/DISSOLVERS mitigate and prevent scale formation from either produced or co-mingled waters under field conditions
  • WAX/PARAFFIN INHIBITORS prevent wax deposition due to temperature drops. Wax inhibitors can also enhance production from fields with high wax content by reducing the viscosity of the oil and preventing the solidification of high pour point crude oil during shut-downs
  • ASPHALTENE deposits can be found wherever incompatible hydrocarbon streams mix and are also commonly found in the wellbore and near-wellbore region around the bubble point. Roemex can offer a selection of asphaltene inhibitors for continuous injection and dissolvers for deposit removal.
  • BIOCIDES reduce the occurrence of bacterial populations, which can cause reservoir souring, biofouling and corrosion problems.
  • SCAVENGERS remove harmful components from the produced fluid and injection fluid streams. Roemex can offer hydrogen sulfide scavengers which can remove H2S from gas, oil and produced water streams. Roemex can also offer oxygen scavengers which are typically used to remove oxygen from injection fluids but which can also be used in Hydrotest and drilling applications.
  • DEPOSIT REMOVAL Roemex is able to analyse oilfield deposits and advise on chemical methods for removal.

The Roemex Production Chemicals Team firmly believes that the best way to develop new and best-in-class technologies is through pursuing a variety of synergistic strategies which allows us to improve our technical solutions to ever more challenging problems. These are:

  • In house research and development
