CHEMICAL FLOW ASSURANCE SYSTEM - Flow Assurance 

Description:

NuFlo® 187 is a proprietary blend of solvents, co-solvents, surfactants, and polymers designed to reduce viscosity, enhance flow, remove asphaltene/paraffin blockages in pipelines, flow-lines, and downhole applications.

Characteristics:

NuFlo® 187 is designed to dissolve and disperse asphaltenes, neutral resins and paraffins in the C8-C55 range and reduce viscosities in ultra heavy asphaltene-rich crude oil—viscosity reductions of 70% are achievable along with pressure drops of approximately 50% in pipelines. NuFlo® 187 will also reduce turbulent flow, dissolve and disperse asphaltenes, and paraffins at ambient temperatures. NuFlo® 187 also has a built-in demulsifier which can eliminate the need for additional chemicals to separate water from the crude oil.  This product has a high flash point and is ultimately biodegradable per OECD 301D.

Applications:

•Used in pipelines to reduce viscosity and therefore increase flow while reducing pumping pressure.
•Used downhole or in flowlines/pipelines to clean and prevent asphaltene and paraffin blockages while enhancing flow.
•Used downhole for squeeze jobs, down capillary strings, or down back side for wellbore cleaning.

Product Benefits:

  • Viscosity Reducer
  • Flow Enhancer
  • Paraffin & Asphaltene Control
  • Pipeline pressure reducer
  • Demulsifier
  • Biodegradable
