Chemical Applications in Producing Oil and Gas

Petroleum Chemistry is made of a mixture of different hydrocarbons. The most prolific hydrocarbons found in the chemistry of petroleum are alkanes; these also sometimes known as branched or linear hydrocarbons. A significant percentage of the remaining chemical compound is the made up of aromatic hydrocarbons and cycloalkanes. Additionally, petroleum chemistry contains several more complex hydrocarbons such as asphaltenes. Each geographical location and hence oil field will produce a raw petroleum with a different combination of molecules depending upon the overall percentage of each hydrocarbon it contains; this directly affects the coloration and viscosity of the petroleum chemistry. The primary form of hydrocarbons in the chemistry of petroleum is the alkanes, which are also often named paraffin’s. These are termed saturated hydrocarbons and the exhibit either branched or straight molecule chains.

The market size of composites in oil & gas industry is projected to reach USD 1.98 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.05% between 2016 and 2021. The increasing demand for non-corrosive and lightweight materials in the oil & gas industry and low maintenance cost of composites are the key drivers of the global market of composites in oil & gas industry.
