How to deal with risks associated with chemical injections


There are various risks associated with chemical injections. Sometimes the injected chemicals do not have the desired effect, sometimes the process of deposition or corrosion just continues under injection. In case too much pressure is used for the injection, the production may be damaged. Or when the tank level is not measured correctly and a platform runs short of media, production may need to stop. Those scenarios cost the operator, the service company, the oil company and everyone else in the downstream a lot of money. Refineries may charge penalties when supplies decrease or stop.


Imagine an operator being very busy running operations, while several colleagues push him to change his activities: The maintenance manager wants to take one system out of line for a periodic maintenance check. The quality manager is knocking on the door demanding the implementation of new safety-rules. The well manager is pushing him to use less dense chemicals to prevent damage to the well. The operations manager wants dense or more viscous materials to minimize the risk of buildup. The HSE forces him to mix enough bio-degradable chemicals in the fluid.


All colleagues with different demands, all pushing for ultimately the same thing: to improve operations, make them safer and keep the infrastructure fit. Nevertheless, running six chemical injection systems for eight production wells and two EOR wells is quite a challenging organization – especially when the inventory needs to be monitored, the fluid quality has to be checked, the system performance must match the well properties and so on and on. In this case it is good to automate the process and with a future perspective allow to run operations remote.


Chemical injections are daily business in oilfield services and in the production of oil and gas. They protect the infrastructure, optimize processes, assure flow and improve productivity. Besides the challenges over and under injection rates like pressure and flow, small scale inventory management increases the profitability of a single system up to a platform and for the complete organization. Inventory Management Systems only make sense when all relevant parties of the organization have easy and fast access to the data. Open networks and the compatibility of a single tank level measurement with the complete chain up to supply vessels or trucks allow control on all levels: from the platform to the headquarter. Exact performance rates of flow and level also help to avoid any risks of HSE disasters. Before the Inventory Management Solution is set up, the right field instrumentation needs to be selected. Selection criteria here are the quality of the devices concerning availability and reliability, to get them in short delivery times, to use open systems for inter-connectivity and to receive local service on a global scale. It is about to make your system
