Upstream Oil & Gas Chemical Treatment

Our broad range of chemistries are widely relied upon by operators to address flow assurance, asset integrity and production optimization challenges in both onshore and offshore oil fields and related applications.

A broad range of chemical solutions for upstream oil & gas

A specialty chemical offering is often not a one-size-fits-all solution. GE helps upstream Oil & Gas producers by providing cost effective solutions to control corrosion, reduce deposition, save energy, treat produced water for reuse or disposal specifications, curtail downtime, increase productivity and optimize system performance.

Tailored GE solutions to maximize asset integrity

GE's comprehensive Asset Integrity chemical and engineered solutions, together with years of expertise, allows us to offer site-specific solutions to effectively address corrosion, bacteria, hydrogen sulfide and other challenges that are a concern. Produced water in the system is the main cause of corrosion in the piping and vessels and the situation is compounded by the presence of acid gases associated with the hydrocarbons. De-aerating oxygen from the injection water is essential to mitigate corrosivity and protect injection networks.

GE's Asset Integrity solutions address challenges under a wide range of operating conditions. The offered treatments cater to both sweet and sour environments, and maximize throughput while increasing production efficiency. GE solutions help maintain asset integrity over the full project lifecycle.

  • Antifoulants & Cleaners
  • H2S & Oxygen Scavengers
  • Biocides
  • Oxidizers
  • Surfactants
  • Corrosion Inhibitors
