As much as 85% of the world’s oil is prone to precipitate paraffin deposits which, as every producer knows can reduce oil flow to such a degree that production ceases altogether.
The Cause of the Problem
The primary cause of wax or paraffin deposition is simply a loss in solubility in the crude oil. This loss of solubility is usually a result of changes in temperature, pressure, or composition of the crude oil as a result of loss of dissolved gases.
Enercat™ Tool Solution
The Enercat™ tool causes an increase in the solubility of paraffin in the bulk crude oil fluid, thereby minimizing and often preventing paraffin crystallization and deposition.
