SI Group announces new Calixarene oilfield chemistry

Published by
Oilfield Technology,

SI Group, a developer and manufacturer of chemical intermediates, specialty resins, and solutions, will present new and innovative oilfield chemistry products at the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) International Conference on Oilfield Chemistry in Montgomery, Texas next week April 3 - 5. The company will introduce advancements in calixarene technology and new paraffin inhibition solutions during a private plenary by invite only, New Challenges, New Solutions, presented by Dr. Robert Cable and Dr. Matthew Meketa.

After having served the oil production industry for over two decades, the company is reinforcing that relationship by introducing novel technology to modern day production challenges that allow for improved performance and added formulation flexibility, including:

  • Effective paraffin inhibition chemistry with a much lower pour point than industry standards, allowing for great benefits in cold weather environments.
  • Viable solutions for crudes historically categorised as difficult to treat.
  • Alternative chemistries to treat paraffin issues.
  • New calixarene technology for oil water separation, solubilised for improved handling and application development.

“Our oilfield chemistry expertise extends beyond two decades and continues to grow,” said Philip Ingham, Senior Vice President, Strategy and New Business Development at SI Group. “The 2016 launch of REZIFLOW™ and CERIFLOW™ product lines for demulsification and flow assurance, demonstrate our ongoing commitment to the oilfield market. These products deliver high-performing, novel chemistries that ultimately improve the cost and efficiency of oil production.”

REZIFLOW products are a range of resins used in the separation of oil and water. REZIFLOW products provide enhanced water clarification and significantly faster separation time — 30 - 50% faster than competitor products, even at lower dosing rates. CERIFLOW products are polymeric compounds that inhibit paraffin and asphaltene deposition on surfaces, allowing for unrestricted flow during crude oil production. SI Group components enable customers to address the most difficult oilfield challenges with best-in-class total cost of ownership.
