Multi-Chem’s effective Low Dosage Hydrate Inhibitor (LDHI) programs are designed to control hydrates and reduce the risk of problems caused by hydrates in gas production systems, such as line blockages and plugs.
Extends well life beyond that achievable with methanol or glycol based inhibitor applications;
Lower dosage rates than traditional methanol or glycol based inhibitors, therefore lowering logistics costs, such as delivery, storage and pump requirements;
Reduces start-up time on systems with a large number of tiebacks; and
Eliminates refinery problems with methanol in production fluids
When the challenge is hydrates, the solution is Multi-Chem's low dosage hydrate inhibitors (LDHI). Falling temperatures can cause ice-like structures containing natural gas to form from water in the flowline. Risks can increase exponentially.
Hydrate particle formation and deposition is a common problem in Gulf of Mexico deep water oil and gas production systems. Caused by a combination of gas, water, relatively low temperatures and high pressures, hydrate particles tend to agglomerate and deposit on pipe walls. This buildup can occur rapidly and lead to blockages, resulting in lost production and high remediation costs. Therefore, prevention is of utmost importance.
