Chemical injection skids

Chemical agents employed in field processing include drilling fluid additives, methanol injection for reservoir stimulation, glycol injection for hydrate inhibition, produced water treatment chemicals, foam and corrosion inhibitors, de-emulsifiers, desalting chemicals and drag reduction agents (DRAs). Chemicals are frequently administered by way of chemical injection skids.


Level monitoring controls chemical inventory and determines when the tanks require filling. Though the precise measurement often comes from chemical metering pumps, it is important for the tanks not to run out or overflow.
