Welcome to Indian Oil Field Chemistry Conference (IOFC)

Chemistry and Chemicals are integral part of upstream Oil & Gas Industry. They play a significant role in drilling, well completion, well stimulation, water shut off, flow assurance, crude oil demulsification, corrosion inhibition, effluent treatment, injection water treatment etc. Chemicals are used as oxygen scavenger, corrosion inhibitor, biocide, demulsifier, surfactants in several operations, solvents, paraffin inhibitor and dispersant, pout point depressant, drag reducer, polyelectrolyte, defoamer, deoiler etc. The whole mud system, which supports drilling operations, is dependent on chemicals that play different roles, such as viscosifier, weight control, fluid loss control, shale control, thinner, synthetic oil etc. A broad range of chemicals have been developed by researchers and service providers to meet the drilling challenges. Speciality chemicals impart unique capabilities and functionalities. Scaling is a big issue for many operators and unique chemical solutions are available for wells/ field through removal, inhibition and management. The Chemical Enhanced Oil Recovery projects like polymer, surfactant and ASP need very specific chemicals and diverse kind of challenges are encountered during their field implementation. Chemistry of crude oil and water plays an important role in most of these applications of chemicals and hence their detailed analysis and characterization will also form a part of discussion of this conference.

The conference will provide an ideal platform for end users, industry, researchers, chemical manufacturers and academic experts to share experiences in managing the challenges that can be handled by chemicals and chemistry. This two-day event will create opportunities for discussing and sharing new experiences in all aspects of chemicals and chemistry and is designed for industry professionals involved or interested in solutions to Oil field problems through chemicals and chemistry.
