Evonik participated this week at the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) held during 12-15 November at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC).
“This is the first participation for Evonik in ADIPEC, and we plan to use this platform to bring our latest technologies to the Middle East region,” said Dr Can Turhan, business manager for Evonik Oil Additives in Africa, Middle East, Turkey and Bulgaria.
“At this event, we regionally launched COPI (Crude Oil Paraffin Inhibitors) technology targeting companies involved in the extraction, transport and storage of crude oil with solutions for the presence of paraffin wax in oil,” Dr Turhan added.
COPI from the oil additives team at Evonik provide benefits in crude oil recovery, flow assurance and storage. This technology modifies the formation and behaviour of wax crystals in the oil, dispersing them and preventing them from adhering to surfaces, such as those in pipelines. Therefore, the new solution allows for better flow while transporting crude oil.
