Midstream Oil & Gas Chemicals Supplier
It’s easy to understand why the oil and gas industry is essential to modern society. People can’t drive cars until they’re filled with gasoline, plastics and other valuable materials may not be processed, and airplanes are grounded without jet fuel.
Delivering usable fuel to market is more complicated than it appears, though. The oil and gas industry is split into groups – upstream, midstream, and downstream – that must perform various processes to bring the finished products people rely on daily to market. As a leading manufacturer of organic chemicals used throughout the oil and gas value chain, Nelson Brothers is proud to offer a range of standard and custom emulsifiers and dispersants capable of improving midstream sector application functionality.
What Is Midstream?
Midstream covers the crude oil and natural gas production supply chain processes that are between the upstream and downstream sectors. Typical activities include the processing, storing, and transporting crude oil and natural gas from the well site, or upstream, to refiners and final points of sale, or downstream.
Companies in this segment operate trucks, railcars, barges, tanker ships, storage or transmission facilities, and pipelines. They also treat, remove water and waste, and compress natural gas and crude oil to support further downstream activities. Media handled by midstream operators is eventually processed into the following finished products.
- Natural gas
- Diesel fuel
- Liquified petroleum gas, or LPG
- Jet fuel
- Synthetic rubber
- Heating oil
- Petroleum coke
- Liquified natural gas, or LNG
- Fuel oil
- Feedstocks for petrochemicals processing
Crude oil and natural gas extraction and refining may come to mind when discussing the oil and gas industry, but it’s a mistake to overlook the midstream segment. Moving precious natural resources safely over long distances requires an array of fluid-based solutions.
Incorporating advanced chemical additives like Polyisobutylene succinic anhydrides, or PIBSAs, and Polyisobutylene succinimides, or PIBSIs, into midstream sector processes offers many advantages.
- Improves process media flow
- Combats corrosion
- Better heat transfer
- Avoids operating equipment fouling due to the deposition of organic material
- Cleans operating environments
- Stabilizes water-in-oil emulsions
- Significantly reduces safety and environmental concerns
