BLOCKAGE REMEDIATION PART 1: BLOCKAGE CHARACTERIZATION & DETECTION

In spite of robust design, adequate infrastructure and a well planned and executed operating strategy, partial or fully blocked pipelines, with loss of production in many cases, is a reality. This series of two articles discusses the diagnosis, detection and remediation of oil and gas production system blockages in detail. The current issue focuses on blockage characterization and detection.

WAX MANAGEMENT STRATEGY PART 3: DESIGN, DEVELOPMENT & MAINTENANCE

In the previous parts of this series, it was established that wax deposition is an issue that arises whenever an oil composition containing appreciable wax content encounters flow, temperature, and pressure that are conducive for solids formation. The effective development of wax management strategies during Front End Engineering Design (FEED) can serve to mitigate or perhaps even prevent the high costs associated with wax remediation.
