Abstract

The presentation key objective is to show how synergizing the use of corrosion inhibitor and demulsifiers has enhanced the performance and optimized the cost of Oil Field Chemical (OFC) treatment at Safaniya Onshore Arab Heavy wet crude handling facilities. The various steps involved in synergizing the use of oil field chemicals at Safaniya Onshore Arab Heavy wet crude handling facilities have also been discussed.

The key performance factors used to assess the overall impact of the process including the total cost of chemical treatment, the effective mitigation of corrosion in the system, the oil in water content in the produced water system, other process parameters like emulsion and foaming tendency were addressed.

Synergizing the use of OFC at Safaniya Onshore Arab Heavy wet crude handling facilities has resulted in chemical treatment cost savings of approximately $2.0 MM per year, better treatment of produced water system and improved corrosion mitigation efficiency of 99.6%.
