Petrozene™ is a revolutionary solvent that has been shown to positively affect many aspects of the oil and gas industry; from production and storage to end cycle refinement.
Used as an additive, Petrozene™ provides a cost-effective solution for dealing with tanker sludge, paraffin problems, storage tank maintenance, and more. Petrozene’s™ superior flow technology is hydrocarbon-based allowing for a non-contamination use in many aspects of the oil and gas production and refinement.
Petrozene™ improves the viscosity during oil shipment and in storage and the percentage of Petrozene™ required to achieve the desired viscosity is significantly less than other methods or materials. Petrozene™ does not have to be removed from the crude prior to refining and in fact – Petrozene™ will enhance the refining process through its ability to liquefy oil sludge, paraffin and asphaltenes in piping systems.
Petrozene™ breaks down paraffin and has other unique industrial-use qualities. Petrozene™ is made from a byproduct of recycled petroleum-based products, so it will not contaminate the oil reserve to which it is being applied. Furthermore, the process that creates PETROZENE™ helps reduce the worldwide problem that petroleum waste products pose to our environment every year.
The formulation and base chemical constituency is unique to our product. Other competitive products in the market are overwhelmingly more expensive than Petrozene™ and contain large amounts of toxic chemicals that can also contaminate the oil. In addition, Petrozene™ has a much lower toxicity than these competitive products.
The discovery of Petrozene™ began with a desire to solve the environmental hazards that various petroleum waste products pose to the environment. Freestone Resources, Inc. has worked with numerous industry partners to recycle these post-consumer materials, and utilize their byproducts in a proprietary way for the oil and gas industry.
The base technology used to produce Petrozene™ has been around for many years, but many companies have consistently failed to make their process environmentally sustainable. Companies that have attempted this technology in the past have been forced to cease production due to the high levels of emissions that they produce. We have been able to overcome the hurdles and barriers that have plagued other operators for years thereby producing a product that is effective, affordable and sustainable. We have been able to meet city, state and federal standards in the production of Petrozene™.
Petrozene™ is a green chemical made from the processing of scrap tires that would otherwise be landfilled. The scrap tires have various processes applied, including pyrolysis and the addition of certain proprietary blended additives amongst other elements.
It is estimated that 300 million tires are scrapped each year. Tire stockpiles create a great health and safety risk. Tire fires can occur easily, burning for months, creating substantial pollution in the air and ground. An additional health risk, tire piles provide harborage for vermin and a breeding ground for mosquitoes that may carry diseases. Illegal dumping of scrap tires pollutes ravines, woods, deserts, and empty lots; which has led many states to pass scrap tire regulations requiring proper management.
Petrozene™ Applications and Uses
Petrozene™ has many uses within the oil industry. Depending on the application we can supply Petrozene™ in drums, totes, oil tanker trucks or rail car loads. Below are the applications that are currently available.
- Paraffin buildup
- Prevent buildup of paraffin in boreholes, tubing, flowlines, lead lines, treaters, stock tanks, pipelines, pumps & separators
- Keeps oil from solidifying and forming caking layers in equipment and pipelines
- Lowers Asphaltenes
- De-emulsifier Agent – Rapid separation of oil, sediment and water. Petrozene™ has been conclusively shown to be effective in the de-emulsification of production tanks by lowering the BS&W of the oil.
- Well treatment
- Formation Injection – potential increase in oil and gas production
- Oil storage tanks
- Oil storage on ships, trucks, rail
- Tar residue and separation
- Refineries – cleans lines, etc.
- Tank Batteries
- Tank bottoms
- Oil Sludge clean-up
- Lowers BS&W (Basic Sediment and Water)
Oil Transport & Oil Storage Solutions:
Some of Petrozene’s applications include the following areas:
Petrozene™ has been shown to be an effective dispersant of oil sludge buildup. The research efforts of Freestone Resources, Inc. and industry partners have shown it to be especially effective in large, long range oil tankers. With the proper amount of Petrozene™ applied to each shipment of oil, they have produced results that show a dramatic reduction in oil sludge buildup on the bottom of the tanks. These same results have been shown in oil storage tanks as well. With the proper application of Petrozene™ costs and operational downtime due to cleaning can be cut dramatically for each.
Oil Well Enhancement:
Freestone Resources, Inc. has also done thorough research concerning oil well enhancement. With the application of Petrozene™ Freestone has discovered that a minimal amount utilized down the wellbore will dissolve and further inhibit paraffin and asphaltene buildup in the well casing. This buildup of paraffin causes other problems such as clogging up lines, pump failures, pressure bursts, and seal failures which can all be dramatically reduced with the proper application of Petrozene™
Numerous independent studies have shown that a minimal amount of Petrozene™ decreases the viscosity of heavy oil. These tests indicate that Petrozene™ can be utilized in pipelines that transport heavy oil in order to increases their efficiency and flow rate.
Paraffin is a hydrocarbon compound that often precipitates on production components as a result of the changing temperatures and pressures within the production system. Heavy paraffins occur as wax-like substances that may build up on the completion components and may, if severe, restrict production. Paraffin is normally found in the tubing close to surface. Nevertheless, it can form at the perforations, or even inside the formation, especially in depleted reservoirs or reservoirs under gas-cycling conditions.
Organic materials consisting of aromatic and naphthenic ring compounds containing nitrogen, sulfur and oxygen molecules. The asphaltene fraction of crude is defined as the organic part of the oil that is not soluble in straight-chain solvents such as pentane or heptane.
When reservoir fluids undergo pressure, temperature and composition changes, asphaltenes can precipitate and deposit, obstructing pumps, tubulars, surface facilities and subsurface formations.
