Silitex is present and operating as supplier in hydrocarbons industry extraction in the main activities as drilling, production, storage, transportation and other auxiliary services. Through dedicated technology and expertise, we provide more than just products; we provide and apply solutions, reducing costs of operations and enhance profitability trend.
Solutions are usually based on a mix of aspects as study, development and knowledge of home technology, customer technology and customer operational constraints, logistics and timing. Application of Silitex solutions is an investment with high return rate.
We know that problems are not just technical matters but they are costs and if not contained in at level of acceptability, generally go to erode and reduce profitability of any activity, Oil & Gas production included.
Hydrocarbons emerge from the underground called “Formation” located in depth varying from few hundred to several thousand meters; rarely they emerge pure. Even if they were, some of the constituents present sometimes, such as Paraffins and Aphaltenes, could create problematic situations.
Usually Oil & Gas get to the surface associated with or carrying some inorganic impurities like residual matters/debris from previous drilling activities and/or just fine sand carry over from formation rock porosity and capillaries. More important is the water associated with Oil & Gas produced.
The water and its own inorganic and organic constituents (often in “cooperation” with the mentioned debris, sand, paraffins) cause a considerable variety of undesired phenomena leading to problems like foam, emulsion, corrosion, erosion-corrosion, scale, production reduction, bacteria presence with consequent sourcing. Bacteria problems are usually related to water for water injection systems.
For water injection system means that a plant take water from the sea, a river, a lake or water wells and inject it down hole injector wells at high pressure, in a way to push the oil in the formation to help migrating towards in proximity of oil producing wells. Sometimes also produced water (with oil) is reutilized. In any case, water is previously cleaned, filtered, deoxygenated, chemically treated in general, pressurized and then injected.
Bacteria have to be dealt and controlled before water is injected down hole. If not, once in the formation, they become responsible of rapid proliferation producing Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) hence opening to further problem as souring to the side of Oil & Gas producing wells, flowlines network, central treating systems and till impairing commercial and economical aspects.
