Corrosion Inhibitor additive avoids corrosion in the production well and gathering system caused by water associated with crude oil production before the corrosion eats away the profits due to increased costs.

Corrosion is an ever present issue for crude oil production and flow stream delivery handling. Numerous methods to identify, prevent or remove corrosion exist from the chemical inhibitors, pipeline alloy selection, coating, isolation, and cathodic protection.

OilFlux™ “SCA” Corrosion Inhibitor additive employs new chemistry to get in front of the corrosion induced losses before they eat away profits.


When added to crude oil coming from the wells, it protects the pipe from corrosion caused by the water.  (Corrosion Inhibitor)
