Go with the Flow - Session 3
Description: Wax inhibitors and pour point depressants are some of the most widely used solutions to mitigate wax problems. However, selecting the right product for your specific crude oil is key and is often impacted by limitations of current laboratory techniques.
In this webinar, presenters Alfred Hase, Kasper Baack, Saugata Gon, and Heather Blackwood will present exciting new developments in wax testing and show examples of how this has helped customers solve challenges previously thought to be untreatable.
