Production Tubing with DuPont™ StreaMax™ XF Coating Systems in Latin America

DuPont™ StreaMax™ XF Coating Systems can be a universal solution for all your flow assurance and corrosion protection needs.

The Challenge

Asphaltene and paraffin deposition were causing significant problems in the production tubing on major oil fields in Latin America. The customer wanted to increase the productive life of the wells by inhibiting deposition of organic and inorganic materials. The customer also wanted to significantly reduce maintenance cost by reducing cleanups and interventions to these critical wells.

The Solution

After 48 months of operations there were zero cleanups, as compared to the reference well which had required a cleanup every two months. These results exceeded our customer's expectations, and the customer requested additional wells with DuPont™ StreaMax™ XF coatings to be installed.
