Heavy Oil

Heavy oil provides great economic opportunities, however, the energy necessary to produce, transport and upgrade a barrel of heavy oil is significant and demands high cost-effective technologies to balance economics throughout the project. Heating vessels, heated pipelines, diluents, power lifts, booster pumps make up just some of the technologies that help meet flow and processing challenges caused by the effects of heavy oil high viscosity. Nuhebah offers a single-source solution for the enhancement of even the most challenging heavy oil production applications.

Our wide portfolio of chemicals includes chemicals for each type of reservoir and production method and is constantly updated to adapt to each specific need present in the oilfield. Located in Alberta, Nuhebah’s Product Development and Technical Service Center is equipped to evaluate production fluids and provide field service in a short time. Our portfolio of solutions includes products for Mining and In Situ operations.

Key Products:

Emulsion Breakers

Efficient crude oil separation from produced water yields both dry oil for export and clean water for discharge and reuse, thereby maximizing crude oil value and minimizing operating costs.

Reverse Emulsion Breakers

Where undesired levels of dispersed oil and solids in produced water streams are encountered, reverse emulsion breakers may be deployed to improve efficacy of secondary separation equipment.

Water Clarification

Water clarifiers remove remaining fine oil dispersions and other insoluble matter from produced water streams, ensuring that purity specifications are met before water injection, reuse, steam generation, or disposal.

Water Treatment

Full set of chemistries for pretreatment, boilers, cooling water and wastewater, including corrosion and scale inhibitors, microbiocides, oxygen scavengers and solids removal.

Antifoamers

Avoiding liquid carryover or enhancing oil separation, antifoamers can optimize production systems with respect to oil production rate and pressure.

Fouling Control

Nuhebah provides specialist expertise and treatments to minimize flow assurance issues caused by fouling, minimizing nonproductive time and ensuring optimal system performance. Our descaling, decontamination, and decommissioning services ensures rapid remediation of fouling issues while preventative treatments—including scale, corrosion and asphaltene inhibition management programs—mitigate future fouling potential.

Flow Improvers

The application of flow can reduce heavy oil viscosity by 40% allowing operators to reduce the demand of diluent needed to achieve sales specifications. The chemistry developed acts as rheology modifiers and are not drag or friction reducers. Its application in pipelines can reduce or eliminate the use of drag reducers.

Asphaltenes Inhibitors/Dispersants

Asphaltenes can precipitate out of crude oil because of changes in process conditions. Proper selection and application of asphaltene inhibitors and dispersants avoid flow assurance challenges such as plugs, deposits, fluidity and migration to the water phase, ensuring continuous production.

Mining and In Situ

MINING

Nuhebah can offer both commodity and specialty products for the major process steps in mining operations, such as Froth Settling Units (FRU), Solvent Recovery Units (SRU) and Tailing Solvent Recovery Units (TSRU), including products for utilities such as oxygen scavenger and biocides. Products offered include specifically developed Asphaltene dispersants to prevent fouling/plugging and specially formulated Antifoams to prevent foaming in the SRU/TSRU’s and subsequent bitumen carry over. Finally, expertise in corrosion control both modeling overheads and formulating neutralizer to control asset integrity in the SRU overheads.

Refineries

Nuhebah has combined worldwide expertise in developing production chemicals for application in upstream oil and gas fields with downstream products and applications to develop a robust and comprehensive product portfolio for refinery applications. For certain applications, such as neutralizing corrosion inhibitors, H2S scavengers and demulsifiers, severe requirements from upstream applications and existing chemistries have allowed to develop a strong portfolio that can be utilized in the downstream environment. New products have been developed for other applications, including film forming corrosion inhibitors, naphthenic acid corrosion inhibitors and cyanide removers.

Nuhebah has direct access to Schlumberger’s research facility located in Houston, Texas. This facility incorporates equipment and personnel dedicated to developing new technological solutions for refinery applications. This is an ongoing research project that has resulted in the commercialization of new demulsifiers for use in desalting applications and film forming and neutralizing corrosion inhibitors for use in refinery overheads.

Key Products:

Desalter Emulsion Breakers

To manage the negative effects of contaminants in crude oil, refineries wash the crude oil with water. A desalting vessel is then used to remove the water added to crude. To facilitate this process, Nuhebah offers demulsifiers specifically formulated for desalting applications and can develop bespoke products either at the refinery location or in the laboratory.

Film Forming Corrosion Inhibitors

Corrosion in refineries due to CO2, H2S, organic and inorganic acids can be mitigated with the application of film-forming inhibitors. Nuhebah has a full range of chemistries that can be used under these conditions to control corrosion and is continually working to develop improved products.

Neutralizing Corrosion Inhibitors

Corrosion in refinery overheads is a common problem. This can be controlled by the implementation of an effective pH control program using neutralizing inhibitors from Nuhebah.

H2S Scavengers

Full set of chemistries for pretreatment, boilers, cooling water and wastewater, including corrosion and scale inhibitors, microbiocides, oxygen scavengers and solids removal.

Water Treatment

Nuhebah provides an extensive range of chemical solutions of use in boiler waters, cooling waters and waste waters. These include coagulants, flocculants, corrosion inhibitors, scale inhibitors, pH modifiers, oxygen scavengers and biocides.
