Case Study Operator Minimized Deferred Production and Workover Costs with Digitally Optimized Chemical Injection
Effective corrosion and scale treatments more than triple ESP run lives.
Our integrated chemistry technologies and services support your asset integrity and flow assurance objectives across your oil and gas operations—upstream, midstream, or downstream—regardless of complexity or geography.
Experienced teams of specialists work with you to identify the root cause of your concerns and develop targeted, value-driven integrated strategies that anticipate, address, and decisively remedy complex production issues. We work with you—using production chemistry, processing and separation technologies, services, and data-driven automation processes—to deliver differentiated technical solutions that enhance your experience and improve your business performance.
Corrosion is a pervasive aspect of oil and gas production—from wells through to the refinery. It has multiple causes, including CO2, H2S, bacteria, and solids deposition. Preventing corrosion and preserving the integrity of upstream, midstream, and downstream oil and gas facilities is essential to their safe operation, reliable production, and protection of personnel and the environment.
A robust asset integrity program has many individual elements, such as chemical treatments, corrosion monitoring, inspection, and data management and interpretation. You can rely on our proven track record of devising bespoke corrosion control, corrosion monitoring, and data management programs to mitigate risk and support safer oil and gas operations.
Preserve asset integrity with a comprehensive portfolio of chemical treatments.
We use a four-step integrated approach to detect, mitigate, and prevent microbially induced corrosion.
Rapidly and cost-effectively evaluate the bacteria control strategy for your field.
Mitigate corrosion in seawater injection systems, hydrotesting operations, and water treatment equipment.
However hostile or difficult the environment, our highly effective and evolving portfolio of products and services can help you maintain optimal production by inhibiting or removing deposits of substances such as scale, paraffin, asphaltene, hydrates, and naphthenates that present flow assurance challenges. We also have a wide range of umbilical-friendly products for deepwater applications.
Remediation of existing flow restrictions can be accomplished with our extensive range of dissolvers and innovative technologies.

Schlumberger production chemistry solutions help mitigate the effects of emulsions and foaming, improve operational efficiency, maximize clean oil production, minimize water quality issues (e.g., in produced water for disposal or reinjection and in industrial water), and reduce environmental impact throughout the lifetime of your system.
Optimally dehydrate crude oil and clean aqueous discharge streams.
Remove oil and insoluble matter from aqueous production streams.
Unload water and condensate from gas wells.
Defoamers are highly cost efficient, working at injection rates of just a few parts per million.
We supply chemical products to remove contaminants from a variety of gas and liquid streams.
Our industry-leading, cost-effective adsorbents for the selective removal of H2S or mercury are used in fixed-bed processes that are simple and easy to operate and require minimal user attention. During the adsorption process, gas or liquid flows through the adsorbent media, and the contaminant chemically reacts with the media to form a stable by-product. The flexibility of the fixed-bed process enables the system to adapt to variations in process conditions. Product consumption depends only on the amount of contaminant that passes through the bed.
Liquid H2S scavengers can be applied as a solution in bubble towers for gas treatment or via direct liquid injection. A wide range of triazine, aldehyde, and non-nitrogen products are available.
Schlumberger experts can help you select the most appropriate technology and product for your application, based on the process conditions and operational requirements.
