HOUSTON – Clariant Oil Services has launched PHASETREAT WET to offer more efficient and sustainable solutions for the oil and gas industry’s demulsification needs.

Designed to overcome challenges inherent in traditional oil production processes – most notably, meeting stricter environmental requirements for oil and water separation – the novel solution is designed to help operators reduce operational costs, simplify logistics, and mitigate safety risks.

For offshore operators, PHASETREAT WET is said to reduce chemical volume by up to 75%, resulting in reduction in freight, inventory, and offshore movements.

Last year, Clariant Oil Services launched the D3 PROGRAM to introduce more sustainable solutions to the oil and gas industry with an emphasis on decarbonization, densification, and detoxification. The initiative leverages advances in the oilfield and helps operators reduce carbon emissions and enhance safe operations, while avoiding disruptions to ongoing operations.

PHASETREAT WET is said to exemplify densification by increasing the active level of the product from 40% to above 90%, which has a direct impact on carbon emissions related to material transport. By diluting the product on-site, the product is made even more efficient, leading to a total material saving of up to 75%.
