PARAVAN 25X-LB

Product Information

Applications

Paravan 25X-LB is a biodegradable, essentially non-toxic, high boiling alternative to solvents, specially
formulated to remove asphaltene and wax deposits from mineral surfaces in the reservoir rock leaving
behind a water wet environment. Paravan 25X-LB does not contribute to the depletion of the earths
stratosphere ozone layer. It contains no petroleum solvents, chlorine or heavy metals. The mayor
component of Paravan 25X-LB is derived from pine resin and therefore the product has a characteristic
pine aroma. Paravan 25X-LB is a terpene-based solvent blended with an environmentally friendly
surfactant package. The surfactants in the blend are excellent asphaltene dispersants that enable
Paravan 25X-LB to cleanse asphaltene and wax deposits in either water dispersions or hydrocarbon
solutions.
It is usually assumed that if asphaltene and wax deposition has occurred in the matrix, then the rock is oil
wet. Xylene has been used historically to remove these organic deposits as it disperses asphaltene and
dissolves wax deposits, but xylene is not able to water wet the rock since it lacks a polar adsorbing micelle
structure. Paravan 25X-LB effectively rinses the oil wet surfaces and prevents re-adsorption of asphaltene
by leaving the surfaces water wet.

Features

Solvent for Asphaltic and Wax Deposits


Paravan 25X-LB solutions disperse asphaltic deposits and dissolve most waxes in the wellbore area.

Water-Wets the Formation


Paravan 25X-LB solutions leave the formation surfaces water wet unlike xylene/toluene treatments.

Crude Oil De-Emulsifier


Paravan 25X-LB solutions are compatible with crude oil and will not cause emulsions

Cement Spacer for Oil Base Mud


Can be used to improve mud removal from oil-based systems and to dissolve dope from tubulars.

Environmentally Safe
Paravan 25X-LB is safer for employees and the environment than other aromatic solvents.

Benefits

Remove near wellbore skin damage caused by the accumulation of asphaltene and wax deposits.
Improves formation relative permeability to oil by cleaning the mineral surfaces in the matrix and
leaving them water wet.

Prevents the re-adsorption of all polar aromatic components in crude oil during and after the
treatment.
Will de-emulsify existing water/oil emulsions and prevent new emulsions between oil and treating
fluids.
Reduces acid-induced asphaltene sludging when included in the acid formulation or when its used as
preflush.
Simplifies treatment design and logistics as it can be added directly to water base fluids
