Paraffin Control

In some shale basins, paraffin or wax deposition can be a problem for producing wells both surface and downhole. Left untreated the paraffin can lead to costly repairs and treatment. Innospec Oilfield Services offers a wide range of water soluble and oil soluble paraffin inhibitors that are specifically designed to keep wax in solution. In addition, when other issues are present, such as scale, corrosion or emulsions, many of our inhibitors are custom formulated to include applicable products to help keep costs low and down time minimal.
