GALVESTON, Texas – Multi-Chem, a Halliburton Service, showcased the capabilities of its low-dosage
hydrate inhibitors (LDHIs) on the exhibition floor at the Deepwater Operations conference being held in
Galveston, Texas.

The company says that its LDHIs effectively control hydrates to maintain well, flowline, and pipeline
integrity while lowering total costs in offshore applications. Multi-Chem says that its extensive research,
product development, and application experience resulted in a number of LDHI products that are
designed specifically for continuous use in hydrate control applications on long, deepwater subsea
tiebacks.

Requiring lower dosage rates than traditional methanol or glycol based inhibitors, Mult-Chem says its
LDHI offshore solutions prevent hydrate plugs that can create complete blockages; and improve health,
safety and environmental performance by reducing chemical storage and handling hazards associated
with thermodynamic inhibitors such as methanol and glycols.

Multi-Chem says that its chemical experts perform an extensive system survey to determine which type
of inhibitor is best suited for the application, and provide a cost-effective LDHI program reduce the risks
of plugged lines and system failures associated with hydrates.
