Production chemicals. Full service.

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.

Asset Integrity

Comprehensive approach to tackling corrosion

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.

Flow Assurance

Mitigate production threats and ensure flow

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.

Purification

Protecting production, your assets, and the environment

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.
