Nalco Champion, an Ecolab company, Launches High-Performance Paraffin Inhibitor Technology

Nalco Champion launches the latest innovation for cold climates

November 04, 2016

Technical challenges associated with oil production, such as controlling paraffin deposition, persist and are often times exacerbated in cold climates. Nalco Champion's advanced paraffin inhibitor solutions are stable and pumpable in the toughest of environmental conditions ranging from -40ºF to 140ºF, sustaining production year round, eliminating CAPEX and reducing risk associated with this unique challenge.

To meet the project's daunting objectives of extreme winterization, the group paired the unique formulation expertise of Ecolab with the synthetic skills and profound product line knowledge of our Nalco Champion Flow Assurance Scientists. Together, the groups were able to successfully deliver a suite of five chemistries - which will be protected by five patent applications - in only nine months.

With an unparalleled combination of science and service, this product line offers a unique combination of inhibitors and dispersants, which deliver strong performance at low concentrations, bringing exponential value to customers. This suite helps customers achieve ambitious business, environmental, and safety goals through:

  • Production Sustainability
  • Reduced Lease Operating Expenses
  • Operational Efficiency
  • Eliminated CAPEX
