H2S - Hydrogen Sulphide - is the number one hazardous substance in oil and gas production. The presence of this gas comes with numerous risks, making prevention measures and monitoring procedures of paramount importance throughout the extraction and production process.
Scale deposits are the most common and most troublesome damage problems in the oilfield. These deposits can occur in both production and injection wells, as solid deposits grow over time, blocking and hindering fluid flow through pipelines, valves and pumps, reducing production rates and leading to equipment damages.
Crude oil and natural gas are often found in the same location when drilling, but because of their different densities, it is necessary to separate them from one another. Since this involves a liquid and a gas, the separation process is physical, although due to the presence of water in the production process, chemicals are necessary to separate crude oil from fluids.
Bacteria can present numerous concerns in oil and gas production, causing significant impact to equipment and production systems. Exploration and production is conducted alongside living eco-systems whose byproducts can cause tremendous damage, therefore it becomes necessary to introduce various biocide chemicals into the production process to maintain successful operations.
