Applying Life Science Concepts to Monitor Difficult-to-Detect Chemicals for the Oil and Gas Industry
We specialise in developing products that can be deployed onsite and which are rapid and simple to use, even by non-specialist staff.
We have developed a range of technologies;
OMMICA™: A simple, accurate and sensitive testing kit for analysing the concentration of the thermodynamic hydrate inhibitors methanol and monoethylene glycol (MEG), in water, crude oil and condensate. For more information on methanol please click here and for more information on MEG please click here.
CoMic™: A technology to help ensure optimal corrosion inhibitor usage. CoMic™ is an entirely novel concept in chemical monitoring and is based on detecting corrosion inhibitor micelles in oilfield fluids onsite. The presence of micelles is used as an indicator for the efficacy of the corrosion inhibitor dose. For more information please click here.
LUX Tag™: For simple, sensitive and more accurate determination of the presence and concentration of treatment chemicals e.g. polymeric scale inhibitors at the point of sampling. The treatment chemicals are selectively labelled with small molecule tags that can be detected with LUX Tag™ detection reagents. Advantages include reduction in sample interferences that can cause detection problems with more commonly used fluorescent tags. For more information please click here.
LUX Tracer™: A portfolio of environmentally friendly chemical tracers that can be detected at low concentrations (parts per billion). Analysis can be conducted quickly and effectively onsite using LUX Tracer ™detection reagents. For more information please click here.
LUX Monitor™: For monitoring of oil-in-water. A LUX Marker™ is added to a sample and produces a distinct fluorescent signal in the presence of hydrocarbons. Potential applications throughout the production, transportation, processing and refining chain. For more information please click here.
Our business model focuses on developing collaborations with operators and service companies, working with them to develop, test and commercialise new approaches to solve chemical detection problems. We are interested in hearing about any chemical monitoring issues you may have that we might be able to help you solve.
