XtreamFlo™ DFS-375 Defoamer Solved Foaming problem on Deepwater GOM Platform
A producer in deep water GOM was not meeting their set KPI’s concerning chemical usage and performance at one of their platforms.
X-Chem was called in to do a system survey and noticed the EB and DeFoamer injection sites were too close in proximity. Plant testing uncovered that the DeFoamer tends to slow the EB breaking capabilities if injected with ten feet of each other. After meeting with the operator and discussing
our findings, operational changes were made by construction during the next shut-in.
After a plant trial and a competitor not being able to meet the set forth KPI’s, the complete deepwater offshore facility was awarded to X-Chem.
X-Chem recommended XtreamFlo™ DFS-375 DeFoamer. The XtreamFlo™ Defoamer was injected continuously into the production stream at a dosage of 25 to 45 ppm with excellent performance. The result was a reduction of chemical usage of 110 gallons per day.
This resulted in a realized cost savings of over $2.6MM per year for the operator.
