Chemical Injection Process and its Importance to the Oil & Gas Industry.
One of the primary concerns of every industries is to optimize the production efficiency. Every bit of the
equipment, time and manpower costs money and the efficiency in all departments enhance the
production value for the organizations. The down time, maintenance & repairs etc. costs have to be
overcome through the improved production rate. It is of paramount importance in the oil and gas
industry and the one which is being developed and enhanced all the time. Chemical injection is a process
whereby secondary chemical solution is added to the primary process flow to improve the primary fluid
quality or to enhance the flow of primary fluid. This process helps in the improvement in the production
capacity, efficiency and reduction in the downtime.
Chemical injection packages play a pivotal role in both onshore and offshore production and are
normally an ongoing and critical process. The chemical injection packages employed to the production
injects a specialized chemical to the flow stream or reservoir to perform a specific purpose and derive a
certain result. In general, the improvement in the efficiency brought by the process enables a higher
production rate, separation of the liquids, reduce corrosion, overall improve the profitability of the
exploration and recovery activities.
Benefits of Chemical Injection Packages
The benefits of Chemical injection have made it a necessary factor in the oil and gas industries and has
become a solid investment, while promoting an environmentally friendly work atmosphere.
It helps in the prevention of corrosion from the wellhead and all the way to the refinery. It
decreases the drag and friction inside the popes along with the decreases down time and thus in
effect a better and increased production flow.
The safe deployment of it in hazardous environment through safety shutdown valves and contro
