Increasing water break-through in maturing oil-wells and the need to develop less accessible oil deposits has lead to steadily growing consumption of well management and production chemicals. This, together with higher performance requirements of chemical formulations and increasing restriction of chemical choice due to environmental constraints, make this industry a highly challenging one. However, reward for success can be high, and the combined chemical and service value of this market has been estimated to be worth billions. Chemicals in the Oil Industry covers a wide range of subjects concerned with the application of chemistry in the drilling for, handling, and transportation of, crude oil. Aimed at the interface between chemistry and engineering, where cost considerations are of vital importance, the book addresses developments over the past few years, both technical and commercial, with particular reference to the emergence of alliances between oil producers and major supply and service companies. It concentrates on those topics such as environmental issues, reservoir souring and analytical developments, where there is an immediate need for innovation.
