Thermax Chemicals for Cairn Energy’s oil fields

An energy major is sourcing oil field chemicals from Thermax Chemical Division. Thermax won the three year contract for the company’s oil field operations at the Ravva Basin in Andhra Pradesh, against international competition.

In a rigorous selection process, the company did an initial laboratory screening of Thermax chemicals to determine their compatibility with the crude oil, water and other chemicals. This was followed by a detailed field trial in various oil and water injection circuits. The activity was done on a “no cure, no pay” basis - the cure being the achievement of stated performance standards.

Thermax credentials including its manufacturing base in India, besides the successful field trials helped the company decide in favour of Thermax.
