Pipelines, Transfer Lines, and Storage Tanks

We provide unique and revolutionary treatment solutions for terminal pipelines, transfer lines, and storage tanks. Our programs help protect assets, meet vapor space requirements, and lower total cost of operations.

Corrosion and Microbiological Protection of Bilge, Transfer, and Internal Lines

  • Pigging and continuous injections for internal pipelines for the mitigation of corrosion and microbiological growth.
  • Sentineladvanced corrosion protection for terminal assets

Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) Vapor Space Requirements

ChemTreat offers Industry-standard and novel approaches to hydrogen sulfide treatment.

Traditional industry approaches:

  • Organic bases (typically triazine)
  • Inorganic bases (NaOh, KOH, blends)

Catalyst PT3165, a new approach for oil sweetening:

  • Lowers oil sweetening dosage and cost vs. triazine
  • Not a triazine (non-formaldehyde-based)
  • No re-emergence of H2S after 48 hours­­ in laboratory tests
  • Stream-dependent versus H2S-dependent treatment
  • Treats H2S over 100,000 ppm measured in the vapor phase (measured up to 200,000 ppm)
  • Does not precipitate in field tests under normal conditions
  • Treated cost-per-treated-barrel significantly less than traditional industry approaches

 

Asphaltene/Paraffin: Tank Bottom Mitigation for Cleaning and Viscosity Reduction for Transfer

We offer solvent, inhibitor, and converter treatment options.

ChemTreat can help lower costs of tank cleaning through the application of our asphaltene paraffin converter FL5478, which reduces viscosity for pumping while thoroughly cleaning storage tank bottoms.

 

Sentinel

Sentinel is our proprietary, patent-pending corrosion inhibitor technology for pigging or continuous injections for internal pipelines. With Sentinel, we bridged the gap between traditional corrosion inhibitors and new technology, providing a stronger, longer-lasting protecting film on metal surfaces.

This treatment solution outperforms standard corrosion inhibitors used in terminals and helps maximize asset protection.

Advantages of the Sentinel Program

  • Will not help stabilize emulsions, unlike most amine-based corrosion inhibitors
  • Calcium- and brine-tolerant
  • May help break emulsions in many instances
  • Unbeatable cost/performance
