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.
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.
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
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.

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