Paraffin deposition in oil-field production and flow lines can cause fouling and plugging issues and may cause further damage to the installed equipment. It can lead to production upsets and loss for the crude oil producers. Nalco Champion provides various chemical solutions in order to mitigate paraffin deposition risks in oil-fields. Based on our field experience it has been often found that performance of various paraffin product lines can be affected by presence of brine in the production fluid. There is a need for a high throughput laboratory test method that can screen paraffin product performance in presence of brine using limited amount of oil. A novel patent pending technology called “Dynamic Paraffin Deposition Cell” has been developed at Nalco Champion to effectively address this issue. This new system has been found to be advantageous over conventional cold finger operations to study paraffin deposition under more realistic field conditions. Dynamic Paraffin Deposition Cell would help Nalco Champion to select better paraffin mitigation solution for its customers.
