With specific results, a project with Dr. Laura Romero-Zerón, could lead to a number of commercial chemical formulations for the remediation of wax problems for the oil and gas industry. Her project, partially funded by NBIF and industrial partner CORRIDOR RESOURCES aims to solve a difficult problem at the Caledonia oil field near Sussex: the remediation of significant wax deposition during production of light oil. The sticky wax builds up on well bore surfaces and production equipment causing severe detrimental effects on its oil production performance. Dr. Romero- Zerón’s work may lead to the formulation of customized chemical treatments to solve the wax problem for Corridor Resources Inc. that might also be useful for the industry at large.
