Protect Your Investment
Part of what makes ATS ChemFlo successful is that we try to understand the entire process, including existing oil and brine water treatment equipment. Our concerns are not only with the separation and extraction of oil for sale, but also with the overall long-term health of your equipment and injection well. Here are some ways ChemFlo increases the life of your equipment and injection well and plant.
Injection Well Protection and Maintenance:
Solids management is one of the most difficult issues to deal with at a Salt Water Disposal facility. ChemFlo drops out or solubilize the solids that plug injection wells.
Scaling can cause more problems than just reducing the size of the hole inside the pipe. It reduces flow rates as well as increases corrosion, pumping time, wear and tear, power bills, etc. ChemFlo will partner with you to determine the cause and customize a treatment solution to improve your flows and remove the scale.
Paraffin or Black Wax Deposits:
Small particulates of paraffin are found in most production oils and waters, and over time can thicken and solidify causing flow restrictions and paraffin blankets, or even solidify tanks completely. Once the paraffin type is identified, ATS will determine the dispersant and dosing needed to keep the paraffin from congealing to help you avoid expensive shutdowns.
Bacteria can cause corrosion on metal pipes, tanks, and equipment, as well as deadly H2S gas. Biofilms can build up in equipment and restrict flow and functionality. ChemFlo will test your water, identify the bacteria, and determine which biocide treatment will give you the greatest efficiency and cost savings.
Corrosion can be caused by many different sources causing costly replacement of metal pipes, tanks, and other equipment. ChemFlo helps you determine where the corrosion is coming from, and recommend a chemical treatment program to reduce or eliminate corrosion.
Natural forming iron solids occur or form during processing and will amount to expensive tank cleanings and numerous acid batch treatments of injection wells and formations. ChemFlo will lab test and design a solution to reduce the number of solids going down hole, thus reducing your overall chemical spend.
