Oil Field Chemicals

With complete product portfolio of Production Chemicals and an experience of over thirty years in supplying Oil Field Production Chemicals globally, Thermax now extends Chemical Management Services in India. Thermax is capable of offering customized chemicals and solutions for the specific needs and application of customers.

The oil field specialty chemicals from Thermax focus on treating crude oil and water, efficiently and cost effectively. We offer a wide range of Pour Point Depressants for smooth and problem free transportation of crude oil from production site to factory. Thermax's Pour Point Depressants have proven their versatility in handling crude of various characteristics.

Thermax can offer a package of chemicals which are required by the oil field exploration services companies, apart from demulsifiers, de-oilers, polyelectrolytes, antifoam and oxygen scavengers.

Our product portfolio also includes chemicals for controlling bacterial growth, scaling and corrosion in oil and gas pipelines while not impeding the flow of oil or gas. This avoids operational problems and ensures smooth transportation of crude.

PRIMARY RECOVERY OF OIL FIELD CHEMICALS

POUR POINT DEPRESSANTS

Thermax expertise in manufacturing pour point depressants under the brand name MAXDIP®. MAXDIP range of special polymer compounds act as a wax crystal modifier and are developed for use with waxy crude. With the help of this special polymer, growth of inter-locking wax crystals is arrested and oil can be pumped below its normal pour point. MAXDIP® is soluble in crude oil and common aromatic solvents with no adverse effect on the quality of resultant distillate and residues.

Below mentioned types of are manufactured in-house with dedicated state of art manufacturing facilities.

Thermax offers the following types of pour point depressants manufactured in own state of the art facility:
  • Poly alkyl acrylate/poly alkyl methacrylate
  • Poly styrene alkyl maleate
In order to prevent Asphaltenes presents in crude oil, Thermax has also devised some surfactants, which can be formulated with pour point depressants.

The wax content, nature of wax present and the presence of asphaltenes & resins defines the Performance of PPD. Hence, as per the specific requirements of the field, a bottle test is recommended to be conducted for a particular oil on the field with variety of chemicals before suggesting a specific chemical & dosage.

DEMULSIFIERS

Demulsifiers are complex blend of organic surfactant in aromatic solvents formulated to avert oil/water emulsions. Thermax manufactures demulsifiers under the brand name - DEEMAX™. To ensure rapid and effective water separation, demulsifiers are formulated from a variety of general classes of demulsifying agents. Both water soluble and oil soluble demulsifiers are manufactured by Thermax. To achieve desired performance parameters, one has to conduct bottle test on site using fresh emulsion for selection of proper formulation blend and optimum dosage. This is important as every emulsion is different in nature.

DEOILERS

Thermax OILMIN® is a range of deoilers/reverse demulsifiers. These are high molecular weight, cationic polyelectrolyte, homo-polymer or co-polymer solutions devised to break oil in water emulsion formed in refineries and in the oil field. The oil in water is significantly reduced from 3000-5000 ppm to 20-50 ppm in produced water.

SCALE INHIBITORS

The scale inhibitors, which are used during primary recovery of oil are manufactured by Thermax under the brand name of SCALEMIN®. Scale inhibitors improve oil and gas flow and prevent scaling. Moreover, they do not change the crude oil characteristics. These chemicals are particularly useful in blocking scale formation caused by calcium carbonate deposits. Scale free surfaces in pipe walls, heat exchangers and valves are easy to maintain for users.

CORROSION INHIBITORS

Different grades of imidazolines manufactured in-house are the basic ingredients for corrosion inhibitors. Fatty amine derivatives, volatile amines and surfactants are the other ingredients. The brand name of this range of corrosion inhibitors manufactured by Thermax is CORROMIN®. Corrosion Inhibitors for oil lines, water lines, gas lines are approved by Thermax. Brine and Corrosive gases like CO2, H2S Products cause corrosion and this product is planned to negate this corrosion.

BIOCIDES

Bactericides manufactured by Thermax under brand name BIOMIN® are efficient against large gamut of bacteria cultures. Both aerobic and Sulphate reducing bacteria are controlled by these bactericides and can be used as a biocide in seawater, brine, fresh or produced water. It also prevents slime formation. BIOMIN® products are made up of gluteraldehyde, fatty amine, THPS, quaternary, formaldehyde, DBNPA type chemicals and their blends. Alternated use of Thermax developed spectrum of bactericides reduces the chances of immunity.

SECONDARY RECOVERY OF OIL FIELD CHEMICALS

COAGULANTS & FLOCCULANTS

Chemicals such as Polyelectrolytes and Fe sources compound are used to purify injection water sourced from River or Sea, also known as Coagulants and Flocculants.

SCALE INHIBITORS

Scale inhibitors are added during secondary recovery of oil. The SCALEMIN® is the brand of Thermax range of these chemicals. . Scale inhibitors improve oil and gas flow and prevent scaling. Moreover it does not change the crude oil characteristics. These chemicals are particularly useful to prevent scale formation caused by calcium carbonate deposits. Scale free surfaces in pipe walls, heat exchangers and valves are easy to maintain for users.

BIOCIDES

Bactericides manufactured by Thermax under brand name BIOMIN® are efficient against large gamut of bacteria cultures. Both aerobic and Sulphate reducing bacteria are controlled by these bactericides and can be used as a biocide in seawater, brine, fresh or produced water. It also prevents slime formation. BIOMIN® products are made up of gluteraldehyde, fatty amine, THPS, quaternary, formaldehyde, DBNPA type chemicals and their blends. In order to avoid immunity, Thermax has developed spectrum of bactericides, which can be used alternatively.

CORROSION INHIBITORS

Different grades of imidazolines manufactured in-house are the basic ingredients for corrosion inhibitors. Fatty amine derivatives, volatile amines and surfactants are the other ingredients. CORROMIN® is the brand name of this range of corrosion inhibitors manufactured by Thermax. Corrosion Inhibitors for oil lines, water lines, gas lines are approved by Thermax. Brine and Corrosive gases like CO2, H2S Products causes corrosion and to counter it this product is designed.

OTHER OIL FIELD CHEMICALS

CLAY STABILIZERS

Thermax has developed SWELLMIN clay stabilizers to check swelling of clay in water & brine. These are cationic polymer solutions in water that help to control dispersion of clay and its migration. Ion exchange takes place in the treated solution between the cations of clay and the substituted Ammonium ions.

ACID CORROSION INHIBITOR

At higher temperature and pressure, corrosion attacks are countered by Acid Corrosion Inhibitors with the help of acids like HCL & HF. These inhibitors are manufactured by Thermax under brand name CORROMIN®.

NON EMULSIFYING AGENT

The use of a Surface active agent keeps away emulsion between crude oil & dilute acids used during acidizing process. At increased temperatures, these active agents, designed to suit HCL and HCL+ HF mixtures, work very well. Thermax manufacture this agent under brand name DEEMAX.

POUR POINT DEPRESSANTS FOR DIESEL AND LUBRICATING OIL

Thermax now also manufacture Pour Point Depressants suitable for Middle Distillates/ Diesels and Lubricating base oils like 150N, 500N. This has added to our in house capability and capacity. Multifaceted Thermax are suitable for various oils from different origins, as they vary in carbon chain lengths and aliphatic acid combinations.
