Asphaltenes exist in crude oil, stabilised by material termed resins. The combined material behaves like a colloidal dispersion. Removal of the resins by a physical or chemical means results in the asphaltenes aggregating and precipitating from the crude. Therefore, when considering asphaltene precipitation the key factor is the association of the resins, since any route to precipitation will involve their removal.

The most effective means of prevention is through chemical treatment.

Scomi Anticor supplies asphaltene dispersants specifically designed for each problematic type of crude oil.


This range of asphaltene dispersants has proven its efficiency on many oilfields throughout the world:

  • Formation damages: removal by squeeze
  • Asphaltene deposition control in completions and surface facilities: treatment by continuous injection
  • Emulsions stabilised by asphaltenes: dual purpose demulsifier and asphaltene dispersant specialities (see SPE 030128)

Each field conditions being specific, Scomi Anticor designs a dedicated formulation for your asphaltene control application.

Scomi Anticor's laboratories are at your disposal to carry out a study and propose a dedicated solution on receipt of samples of crude oil and technical questionnaire duly filled.
