We safeguard our customers products and assets from upstream to downstream applications.
We offer new and innovative chemical products that are based on modern basic research and meet today's strict environmental, technical and quality requirements.
With extensive knowledge of microbiology, Vink Chemicals is able to offer biocides that are effective against a wide range of germs. Thus, preventing possible microbial contamination and its consequence sludge deposition during the transport and storage of crude oil and water fluids.
Microbial contamination during storage and transport can occur due to possible anaerobic, nutrient rich conditions and even small amounts of water that can lead to growth of biofilm-forming, sulfate-reducing microorganisms. These sulphate reducers metabolize specific sulphate sources and produce unwanted H2S. By putting the right microbiological growth control like a preservative or biocide in place microbial influenced consequences can be avoided.
Microbial infestation can lead to safety risks and damage to the system by causing microbiological induced corrosion MIC, which can result in high maintenance costs. Our biocide is designed in such a way that it offers effective protection against harmful microorganisms and protects people and equipment.
In response to changing market requirements, Vink Chemicals offers an innovative, non-triazine-based hydrogen sulfide scavenger that is intended to replace the established HHT solutions for midstream activities.
Hydrogen sulfide (H₂S) is a toxic, sour gas found in many of the world's crude oils, generated by thermochemical, geological or biogenic processes. Not only does it represent a serious HSE risk (health, safety, environment), but it can also corrode pipelines and equipment.
The possible negative effects caused by H₂S presence on pipelines and storage facilities, are:
- Safety concerns (toxicity)
- Odor (H₂S)
- Corrosion (including MIC, SRBs)
- Impaired flow properties and heat transfer (contamination and calcification)
- Regulatory challenges (quality specifications, emission limits, SOx)
Our oil/water soluble hydrogen sulfide scavenger has been developed to effectively counteract the problems.
Vink Chemicals is your one-stop partner for microbiological contamination solutions. We support our customers with customized biocidal cleaners. To meet the growing demand in the industry we developed high performance non-biocidal biofilm removal solutions which work by desintegrating the biological structure within the biofilm and prevent new biofilm attachment on metal surfaces without the hazzle of biocide registration issues. Both types of cleaning agents are proven in the market. The use of biocides can achieve a greater effect through optimal industrial hygiene which saves costs and protects human’s health, assets and the environment. This also includes the removal of harmful biofilms in production facilities.
With an acquisition of Anticor Chimie, Vink Chemicals offers comperehensice wax management chemicals that combat paraffin issues and thus prevent organic deposition and its serious consequences in oil storage and transportation.
Crystallization and deposition of paraffin waxes causes billion dollars cost issues associated with flowline plugging, reduction of flow rate through pipeline, deposition in the storage tanks, chocking of flowlines, failure of equipments and underdeposit corrosion.
Vink Chemicals portfolio contains of wax killers that are versatile products acting directly on paraffin crystal structures, on crude oils rheological behaviours and finally on pipe protection by forming a liquid film preventing the paraffin from sticking to pipe walls. The Paraffin dispersants can be used for continious injection as preventive measure to inhibit the formation of deposits on the walls, and also for batch treatment as corrective measures to remove existing paraffin deposits without stopping production.
Our pour point depressant PPD's modifies paraffin crystallization, lowering the pour point, reducing oil viscosity and can significantly reduce the restart pressure.
Vink Chemicals support our partners and customers with complex approach by combining different properties chemistry to inhibit several issues associated with organic deposition.
With an acquisition of Anticor Chimie, Vink Chemicals gathered the knowledge of the first chemical manufacture that brought surfactant based asphaltene inhibitors to oil and gas market that enable us to offer optimized solutions for asphaltene treatment.
Deposition of flocculated asphaltene can cause significant economic impact for crude oil production and transportation. These organic depositions during storage and transportation may cause flowline plugging, reduction of flow rate through pipeline, deposition in the storage tanks, chocking of flowlines, failure of equipments and underdeposit corrosion. The behaviour of asphaltene deposition is complex and involve the distruption of resins and maltenes stabilizers.
Vink Chemicals offer asphaltene dispersing and inhibiting solutions that stabilizing and slowing down asphaltene deposit formation, as well as effectively dissolve existing asphaltene deposits during tank cleaning appliation.
With an acquisition of Anticor Chimie, Vink Chemicals gathered the knowledge of flow improvement technology to boost your crude oil transportation.
Drag reducing agents DRA's chemisty allows to boost the flow speed by consuming same amount of energy or even decreasing the pressure by maintaining laminar flow. Flow improvers are chemistry that act of viscosity reduction of crude oil fluid by improving its flowability.
We offer range of additives based on bio-sourced raw materials acting on a wide range of properties, such as viscosity reducers for heavy oils and destructuring agents for paraffin networks to ensure high efficiency and reach required systems flow.
