Alfred Hase, Chemical Technologies RD&E Group Leader
A sense of continuing education drives Alfred Hase’s work at ChampionX. “In terms of innovation,” he said recently, “I never left the university.” By being a customer advocate and with his drive to improve, Alfred embodies many of ChampionX’s operating principles, and he actively facilitates a workplace that nurtures innovation. His team's work has led to improved efficiency and increased success for our customers - specifically through their support of the deployment of an anti-agglomerant low-dose hydrate inhibitor (AA-LDHI) that helps reduce the carbon footprint of gas hydrate prevention.
Soon, Alfred and other members of our team from the UK, U.S. and Norway will attend the Offshore Northern Seas (ONS) conference, a semi-annual event in Norway, where he will present on the development of our innovative AA-LDHI technology during a technical conference session.
Alfred is no stranger to innovation. He joined ChampionX shortly after he completed his postdoctoral studies, and his first task for the company was to advance the development of gas hydrate inhibitors in the Eastern Hemisphere (EH). Nearly two decades later, Alfred is the senior group leader for flow assurance in the EH, based in Aberdeen, Scotland, and his work has expanded into developing new types of gas hydrate management solutions with a focus on understanding how changes in operating conditions can affect outcomes and increase efficiency.

Did you know? Alfred and his team were recently nominated for a World Oil Best Oilfield Fluids & Chemicals Award for the innovative, combined Kinetic Hydrate Inhibitor and H2S scavenger they developed for a North Sea customer. Learn more about the benefits of this combined solution here.
Reducing carbon footprint is a focus of the industry, so it's vital that our focus is on sustainability as a company. Hase
