Demulsifier is a water soluble product for crude oil recovery from water-in-oil emulsion. Comprises of poly-ol, solvent and surfactant to effectively recover oil from stubborn emulsion, producing sharp phase separation layer for good recovered oil quality at both offshore and onshore facilities. Demulsifier performs at ambient temperature, and achieves optimum performance at higer temperature between 45 - 70 degree Celsius.
- Water soluble.
- Fast separation.
- Sharp, tight and clean oil-water interface.
- Achieve excellent crude quality.
- Continuous injection
Demulsifier is injected as far upstream as possible to aid separation due to better mixing with emulsion. Emulsion breaking can be a very complex task as oilfield emulsion from a single source can vary over time, hence bottle test is usually carried out to determine the dosing required. Typical dosing is between 50 - 150 ppm. The actual volume required depends on several factors such as emulsion, crude and water type, and in-situ system configuration.
- Desalting systems of both offshore and on-shore oilfield
- Wellhead prior to oil and water separation equipment.
