Dorf Ketal is a global leader in process chemicals delivering performance through innovative, leading-edge chemistry. From the oil well through the refinery, we solve the most challenging emulsion, corrosion, flow restriction, fouling and scaling problems in the industry.  We understand the complexity of developing the right solution for oil and gas producers around the world, whether onshore or offshore.  We work closely with our customers to deliver value they can count on for increased production, enhanced equipment life and reduced health, safety and environmental concerns.

Dorf Ketal delivers:

  • Flow Assurance from corrosion control to preventing flow restrictions, our advanced chemical technologies keep your production flowing to market without interruption. 
  • Integrity Management that extends the life of your production asset with unique process chemicals created specifically for reducing safety risks, promoting trouble-free equipment operation, and avoiding unexpected shutdowns.
  • Well performance through production optimization chemicals designed to maximize yield from the reservoir by eliminating potential down-hole and above-ground flow restrictions.
  • Produced Fluids Treatment that efficiently addresses the breaking of oil/water emulsions to produce salable crude oil that meets all specifications to be more efficiently refined and higher quality produced water.

Our extensive product offering, specific for oil and gas production, includes:

  • Corrosion Inhibitors: A wide range of inhibitors designed to retard the effect of corrosive gases such as H2S and CO2, prevalent in production and injection fluids.
  • Emulsion Breakers: Patented Dorf Ketal chemistry quickly and uniquely separates crude and water components in even the most difficult produced fluids.
  • Water Clarifiers: Improve the efficiency of the separation equipment, reducing operating costs in the removal of oil and particulates from produced water. 
  • Biocides: Protect formations and producing wells from bacterial contamination and microorganism growth.
  • Scale Inhibitors: Reduce the deposit of scale forming compounds that can accumulate in production wells, water and disposal wells, flow lines and surface equipment.
  • H2S Scavengers: Unique scavengers and new MAXSCAV™ chemistry effectively remove hydrogen sulfide (H2S) from process systems to improve personnel safety, protect equipment from corrosion and meet crude sales specifications.  
  • Antifoams: Reduce the possibility of foaming during gas separation process, increasing production and maximizing equipment efficiency.
  • Paraffin & Asphaltene Inhibitors: Reduce deposition of paraffin and asphaltene that, if not addressed, retard flow and increase remediation needs.

The Dorf Ketal lineup of oil and gas production products is designed to provide results that customers can count on to solve production challenges through innovative chemistry.  We are ready to be your partner in providing answers to your unique operations.
