Petrochemical sector

The water used throughout the oil and gas sector must be continuously supplied and treated. From the production of process water through to effluent treatment, each network is subject to technical, economic and environmental constraints.

From the extraction of crude oil or gas through to crude oil refining or gas liquefaction operations, AQUAPROX offers concrete, innovative solutions:

  • Treatment of oil & gas wells (gas corrosion inhibitor, agent for preventing the build-up of deposits, bactericides)
  • Cooling system
  • Boiler
  • Reverse osmosis unit
  • Sea water desalination unit (multi-stage flash distillation and thermocompression –  scale-inhibiting treatment)
  • Industrial effluent treatment

  • Reduction of maintenance operations (reduction of the leaching operations of the heating chamber and evaporation chamber)
  • Elimination of deposits in the evaporation chamber
  • Inhibition of fouling of the evaporation chamber
  • Reduction in the dosing product consumption from 2.5 ppm to 2 ppm
  • Increase in the distilled water production (fewer shut-downs for technical purposes)
