Controlling corrosion is a big challenge in the oil and gas industry. Easily accessible oil reserves have been depleted resulting in an ever increasing requirement to explore more isolated locations, under harsher conditions. The presence of water, acids, acidic gases, high levels of oxygen and brine all provide the perfect environment for corrosion. This corrosive environment is further complicated by flow conditions, operating temperatures and pressure changes.
Corrosion inhibitors are surfactants which give them properties allowing them to partition between the oil and water phase. The hydrophilic group adsorbs onto the metal surface, which leaves the hydrophobic group to form a water resistant organic film on the surface. It is this film that prevents the corrosive species from coming into contact with the metal surface.
Our superior corrosion inhibitor range offers a high level of protection against corrosion. Our offering includes both oil and water soluble products as well as a range of dimer and, or, trimer acids. Whilst dimer and trimer acids are not corrosion inhibitors in their own right, when added to imidazolines they form an oil soluble salt which offers corrosion inhibition performance.
