Flowrox to Exhibit at World Heavy Oil Congress 2015

Release date 03/19/2015

The global industry event attracts thousands of leaders from hundreds of Oil & Gas companies, providing a platform to interact with the Heavy Oil Industry market in a location where prospects are actively seeking solutions to problems affecting their pipelines and equipment operation. It is no coincidence that the Heavy Oil Industry is meeting in Alberta, Canada, since this expansive region is considered to be one of the top locations for heavy oil, largely found in its deep oil sands deposits.

In Edmonton, Flowrox Inc. will be marketing its Flowrox Deposition Watch—a device designed to monitor and control the collection of paraffin wax and asphaltene depositions before they reach critical levels that can result in pipeline damage. Developed for use in Oil & Gas pipelines where depositions can affect the flow of crude and hinder production, the Flowrox Deposition Watch serves as a predictive device that allows operators to monitor and address deposition issues proactively.

Transporting heavy oil through pipelines comes is a challenging process due to its low mobility and high viscosity—along with the presence of components such as asphaltene and sulphur—and innovative products like the Flowrox Deposition Watch offer a cost-effective way to monitor deposition buildup. “Opportunity abounds for Flowrox in an industry that seeks to mine large reserves of heavy oil worldwide and must keep up with the production demands on a global scale,” said Todd Loudin, President at Flowrox.

The Flowrox Deposition Watch utilizes a patented algorithm that creates a 3D image of the process fluid in the piping and generates trend data, as well as show free volume inside the pipe and the growth rate of the deposition growth over time.“Flowrox constantly follows the needs of the Oil & Gas industry and we react quickly by developing solutions to help our customers remain productive,” added Loudin, who will be present at the 2015 World Heavy Oil Congress to engage other industry leaders.

According to industry statistics, heavy oil accounts for up to a quarter of the total petroleum resources worldwide and this further validates the vast potential for Flowrox in the Oil & Gas industry. It should be noted that among the benefits of the Flowrox Deposition Watch to the Heavy Oil Industry are the constant monitoring of deposition and the prevention of an unexpected shutdown that can result in loss of revenue.
