SI Group, a global developer and manufacturer of chemical intermediates, specialty resins, and solutions, unveiled two new product lines of oil production chemistry at the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) 2016 Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition (ATCE) in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.
“SI Group has been serving the oil production industry for over two decades,” said Stephen Haller, Senior Vice President, Strategy and New Business Development at SI Group. “The launch of REZIFLOW™ and CERIFLOW™, product lines for demulsification and flow improvement, demonstrate our ongoing commitment to the oilfield market. These products leverage our deep expertise in both chemistry and manufacturing to develop and deliver high-performing, novel chemistries that ultimately improve the cost and efficiency of oil production.” REZIFLOW products are a range of alkylphenol-based 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 asphaltene and paraffin buildup that can deposit 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.
SI Group is a global leader in the manufacturing of monomers, resins, and in providing resin customisation capability. To further support this growing market, the company has established an Oilfield Center of Competence, which comprises a dedicated team of technical experts focused on research and development innovations – innovations, which increase the efficiency of oil production through increased throughput, enhanced water quality, and reduced downtime. The company’s growing portfolio of oilfield solutions includes demulsifiers and flow assurance intermediates for oil production. These industry-leading technologies solve challenges in upstream and downstream oil production as well as refining.
The market for these chemistries is growing due to the industry’s increasing complexity of crude oils. REZIFLOW technology aids in the separation of oil and water, while CERIFLOW chemistries are designed to inhibit paraffin and asphaltene deposition.
