Flow Improvement

Production and transportation of crude oil and emulsions can pose severe challenges for oilfield operators. Nalco Champion leverages extensive field experience with oilfield chemicals to develop cutting edge inhibition, emulsion management, drag reduction and dispersion technologies that enhance production, reduce operating costs and increase profitable throughput.
lower viscosity, improve lift

Nalco Champion flow improvement programs effectively lower the apparent viscosity of produced fluids downhole to improve the lifting process. The result? Reduced operating costs and more profitable throughput.

increase heavy oil throughput

Production and transportation of heavy and extra heavy crude oil presents unique challenges to the operator. Our unique flow improver solutions help modify crude oils rheological properties to increase throughput.

improve flowability

Do low API or high pour-points impact your produced fluid flow-ability? Nalco Champion's proprietary technology creates a unique water external dispersion - causing droplets of oil to be suspended in water rather than droplets of water suspended in oil. The result is a dramatic decrease in apparent viscosity and measurable improvement in operational efficiency.

treat turbulent crude

Reduce frictional pressure in your conduits and pipelines to increase throughput. Nalco Champion’s suite of drag reducers act as buffers along the pipe wall to decrease the amount of energy lost in turbulent formation.
