FlexiSolv® DBE® esters - Oilfield Chemicals

Many chemicals are injected into oil wells and pipelines to aid the extraction of oil. The oil-bearing rock is deep in the Earth's hot crust. Oil is transported to the surface, often via pipes running through icy waters. To extract the oil and transport it to the surface for separation complex additive systems are required. These are often dissolved in solvents. FlexiSolv® DBE® esters can be effective solvents in some cases.

The advantages FlexiSolv® DBE® esters offer are manifold:

  • readily bio-degradable
  • can be blended with many other solvents to create replacement formulations
  • high solvency power means you can use less solvent in total
