Abstract

Corrosion in the Oil and Gas Industry

Corrosion in the Oil and Gas Industry - The Involved Costs of Corrosion

The total annual cost of corrosion in the oil and gas production industry is estimated to be $1.372 billion, broken down into $589 million in surface pipeline and facility costs, $463 million annually in downhole tubing expenses, and another $320 million in capital expenditures related to corrosion.

It is widely recognized within the oil and gas industry that effective management of corrosion will contribute towards achieving the following benefits:

Scale Problem in Oil Production

Scale problem in oil production is a big issue. We have found an interesting article published at Petrowiki website. We transcribe below some excerpts of such article, related to scale formation and use of inhibitors. 

 

Green Products for the Oil and Gas Industry

Green Products for the Oil and Gas Industry

Green and sustainability are two words with enormous value within the oil and gas industry. The key issue is how to achieve such green and sustainable results. 

Corporate decisions and wishes to care the environment are the first step, but the real results are obtained when an energy company develops a sustainable strategy and take adequate decisions to improve and care the environment. One of the possible paths to achieve sustainable goals is to use green products and services in the majority of activities within the industry, be at upstream, midstream or downstream operations. From production to refining and transportation, there are many ways to implement green practices and use green products and services in the oil and gas industry. The fracking industry is an example where some environmental friendly actions might be taken, turning a criticized activity into a more green way to obtain oil and gas.

Inhibition of Oilfield Scales using Plant Materials

Inhibition of Oilfield Scales using Plant Materials: A Peep into Green Future

A recent study published by Ekemini B. Ituen1, Joy I. Ime-Sunday1 and Edidiong A. Essien2, demonstrates that oilfield scales have been effectively managed using scale inhibitors derived from inorganic and organic polyphosphates, carboxylic acid and carbohydrate based polymers, and ethylene diamine tetracetic acid (EDTA) based compounds.

Trends in U.S. Oil and Natural Gas Upstream Costs - EIA Report

Trends in U.S. Oil and Natural Gas Upstream Costs - EIA Report 

The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) published this report on March 2016. We understand this is useful information to understand the onshore and offshore costs of the oil and gas industry, basically upstream costs. In several parts of the report are considered the costs of chemicals and fluids, and since we supply this green solutions to oil and gas industry, we found useful to publish the link to the report. 

Green Natural Polymer for EOR - Enhanced Oil Recovery

Green Natural Polymer for EOR - Enhanced Oil Recovery

Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) - Chemical Injection - Chemical Flooding - Polymer Flooding

Chemical flooding is one of the major techniques for Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR), especially for reservoirs where thermal techniques are not feasible. The most widely used chemical method is polymer flooding. Polymer increases the viscosity of the injected water and reduces permeability of the porous media, allowing for an increase in the vertical and areal sweep efficiencies, and consequently, higher oil recovery.
