We create chemistries that improve the efficiency, safety and financial performance of our clients assets.
Industry Challenges – Meet Innovative Chemistries
Hydrogen Sulfide Control
FQE H2S is water-based, proprietary polymeric that works nearly immediately, is non-reversible, and prevents the formation of hazardous solids in valves, pipelines, and other essential equipment.
New Barium Sulfate Scale
Proprietary chemical designed specifically for hard scale removal. Utilizing dissolvers with catalytic activators enhance the rate of dissolution and has proven effective with a wide variety of scales.
Restores process efficiencies, eliminates costly hazardous waste disposal, and recovers valuable hydrocarbons for reintroduction into the refining process — creating additional production revenue.
