Hydrate-Inhibitor Testing Kit

LUX Assure’s OMMICA is a simple and accurate testing kit for analyzing the concentration of the thermodynamic hydrate inhibitors methanol and monoethylene glycol (MEG) in water, crude oil, and condensate. Oil- and gas-pipeline systems are particularly at risk for hydrate formation during well startup or when operating at a low flow rate. These inhibitors prevent that process, and OMMICA can test, in as little as 1 hour, whether methanol and MEG are present in oil or water samples, both off- and onshore. The kit can be used on site by existing personnel and requires minimal hands-on testing time. Its use of robust equipment makes it ideal for offshore work, and an accelerated turnaround time provides little interference in ongoing operations. As well as minimizing downtime, OMMICA provides users with improved health, safety, and environmental performance by ensuring compliance with government regulations.
