Advancing Paraffin Control: Chemical Design and Evaluation

Successful field paraffin management relies on many important factors that impact both the production fluid and the production chemistries deployed, but one is commonly overlooked – ambient temperature. Like produced fluids, the properties of paraffin inhibitors, such as viscosity and pour point, are affected by declining temperatures. SI Group is developing robust and reliable paraffin inhibitors with improved solubility and stability for land-based and subsea applications that demonstrate exceptional performance in sub-optimal conditions and applications.

Predictive Maintenance Takes on Operational Risk

In today's volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) global market, everything is changing — and in production environments, change means increased risk. Asset performance management technology provides deep insight into risk factors across the enterprise, enabling companies to: • Increase the safety and sustainability of their operations by avoiding unsafe conditions • Optimize margins by significantly reducing unplanned downtime • Lower insurance premiums by improving their risk profile Learn how predictive maintenance can deliver financial advantages now.

Six steps to managing the integrity of ageing assets

Aging assets pose a significant risk to reliability, burdened by factors such as poor preventative maintenance programmes, a lack of data, changing operating envelopes and obsolete technologies. The longer an asset remains out of service for repairs, the longer its impact on production. However reliability can be radically improved and the life of these assets significantly extended for years to come, by adopting the right asset management model.

Increasing Well Delivery Efficiency through Enhanced Scheduling

• When your manager wants to know the cost of your drilled inventory, does it take more than a few seconds to give an accurate answer? • When your drilling program budget is changed does it take you more than 10 minutes to reschedule your project? If you answered “Yes” to either of these questions you’re not alone. Eight out of ten oil and gas operators use scheduling software that doesn’t effectively support well delivery projects. Our White Paper explains the limitations of simplistic scheduling software and describes the benefits of modern tools.
