USA: Stack and Scoop Clariant Opens New Support Facilities for Oil and Gas Industry
Clariant hosted a Grand Opening Event for their new facilities based in Clinton, Oklahoma. The site is a strategic location to support the growing oil and gas industry within the Mid-Continental (Mid-Con) region with a focus on the Stack and Scoop, the company announced.
Houston/USA — The site includes a modern laboratory with analytical services directly in the midst of their customers’ operations, providing the data necessary to measure the effectiveness of a chemical management program. Proximity to customers means this strategic location would ensure fast turnaround times, the company stated. The laboratory could also troubleshoot the various challenges that can arise with oil and gas production — specifically in the areas of problematic paraffin, challenging emulsions, and hydrogen sulfide. The regional technology team has introduced a proprietary, non-triazine scavenger with proven results in the region, that delivered notable reductions in customers’ operating expenses.
According to the company, technical expertise and know-how at the Clinton facility had been built from considerable involvement in tackling paraffin and emulsion challenges, which are characteristic to the region. In addition to the laboratory, the site houses a blending facility to enable security of supply, with the flexibility to produce fit-for-purpose products as required. Clariant Oil Services also offers customers capillary support. It offers multiple products that maintain asset integrity and flow assurance for oil production, heavy oil, Enhanced Oil Recovery (Eor), pipeline maintenance and well stimulation for both conventional and nonconventional plays. The company also offers Veritrax, the first management system to intelligently digitize the end-to-end chemical management process.
Pete Schoemann, Head of Oil Services North America Clariant, said that his company was the fastest growing specialty oilfield chemicals supplier in North America, and the ability to be where the customers are was a clear differentiator.
In addition to the enhancement of facilities at Clinton, the supplier has also made significant investments at their location in Midland, Texas and expecting to be open in Q3 this year.
