Asphaltene Control

Asphaltenes are heterocyclic aromatic molecules representing some of the highest molecular weight fractions present in crude oil. Their limited solubility in crude oil can result in deposits forming in the producing well causing production issues.

 

The asphaltene control additives offered by Lankem can be used in the formulation of treatments that will effectively disperse asphaltene agglomerates and aid in the inhibition of deposition. The following is a selection of the products that find application as components in asphaltene control:
