Evonik, one of the world leaders in specialty chemicals, participates this month at the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) held November 11-14, 2019 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC).

“We are participating at ADIPEC for the second year in a row because we believe we have many solutions that can help the regional oil and gas industry to achieve production goals more efficiently. For us, ADIPEC presents a great platform to connect with the most important regional players and promote our technologies” said Dr. Herndrik Schoenfelder, Regional President, Evonik Middle East and Africa.

“Evonik is proud to bring its innovative solutions and broad range of products to the region. We help to unlock reservoir potential, protect asset life and enhance production and throughput for the oil and gas industry” explained Dr. John Wey, Head of the Evonik Oil & Gas Industry Team.

Two other categories that are new to the Middle East region, High Performance Polymer’s membranes and Specialty Methacrylate Monomers under the VISIOMER® brand.

VISIOMER® products are specialty methacrylate monomers that act as the building blocks to make resins in multiple areas inlcuding fluid loss agents, shale control, hydrate inhibitor, viscosifiers, drag reducer and water clarifiers. In this product group, Evonik offers unique services and expertise based on the company’s broad monomer portfolio, global network, R&D support and tailor-made solutions.

Evonik’s membranes are used for gas separation and offer an efficient solution due to lower installation, operating and maintenance costs. SEPURAN® NG is an especially robust, hollow-fiber membrane, which is based on a high-performance polymer that can withstand extreme pressure and temperatures, and features a stable performance even in the presence of H2S, water or higher hydrocarbon concentrations.

In addition to these two new catagories, the German-based specialty chemicals company will showcase COPI™ which provides benefits in flow assurance and storage as it prevents the formation of wax crystals in oil. Other highlighted products is VESTAMID® NRG which can be used in flexible pipes for both pressure barrier liner and outer sheath as also in gas pipes, reinforced thermoplastic pipes, composite pipes, and liners for internal steel pipe protection against corrosion and rehabilitation. The pipes are easy to process, install and weld. They are compatible with multiphase fluids, water, oil and gas, including sour gases.

Please see us and talk to our Oil and Gas experts during ADIPEC at the Evonik booth located in Hall 13, Stand 13260 from November 11 to 14, 2019.
