Petroferm - Fuel & Oilfield Products
Petroferm Fuels and Oilfield products provide chemicals and field expertise to improve combustion of heavy fuel oils and production of oil and gas. The PEP-99® and PAF® products create stable emulsions of heavy fuel oils with 10 – 30% water. These products allow the much improved combustion of low-grade heavy fuel oil. The results are increased combustion efficiency, lower stack emissions, and reduction in the use of costly diluents. Petroferm has leveraged this technology to create the HO-FLOW® family of products for the oilfield. The HO-FLOW products form water-external emulsions with heavy crude oils with only 30% water in the mixture. The technology has increased production and lowered pipeline transportation costs in Canada and Mexico by reducing apparent viscosities of low API gravity crude oils. Products for paraffin, asphaltenes, dehydration, and other production enhancing chemistries are also available.
Petroferm continues to search for cost-effective solutions in the petroleum industry by combining expertise in surface chemistry with manufacturing capabilities in alkoxylation and esterification.
