Paraffin/Asphaltene System


PA-721 System is a blend of aromatic solvents combined with penetrants and dispersants designed for the removal of heavy paraffin/asphaltene deposits as well as heavy hydrocarbon based sludge.

PA-721 System is excellent for the removal of damage created by hot oiling. This system is designed to address the tighter more complex carbon chains after the light ends have been stripped away by means of extreme heat.

PA-721 System has been designed to work in low bottom hole temperatures and sub-sea pipelines, where thermals are not adequate enough to aid most aromatics in a sufficient removal of paraffin/asphaltene build-up.

PA-721 System can be used as a pre-soak before stimulation treatments, such as acidizing and/or fracturing. This method is used to remove any hydrocarbons that may be plating out on the formation, thus preparing the formation face so that optimized performance can be expected from the acid and/or fracturing stimulation procedure.

PA-721 System has been used to circulate wells by pumping down the tubing or via the casing to remove paraffin/asphaltene deposits. This technique cleans and prepares the tubular goods prior to moving in work over rigs.

PA-721 System is recommended depending on the severity of damage and type of application. Samples should be obtained to determine that each individual well has the proper loading.
