Evonik launches COPI™ at the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition & Conference

Evonik, one of the world leaders in specialty chemicals, participates this week at the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) held between 12 & 15 November at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC).

“This is the first participation for Evonik in ADIPEC, and we plan to use this platform to bring our latest technologies to the Middle East region,” said Dr. Can Turhan, Business Manager for Evonik Oil Additives in Africa, Middle East, Turkey & Bulgaria.

“At this event, we regionally launched COPI™ technology – or Crude Oil Paraffin Inhibitors - targeting companies involved in the extraction, transport and storage of crude oil with solutions for the presence of paraffin wax in oil,” Turhan added.

COPI™ from the Oil Additives team at Evonik provide benefits in crude oil recovery, flow assurance and storage. This technology modifies the formation and behaviour of wax crystals in the oil, dispersing them and preventing them from adhering to surfaces, such as those in pipelines. Therefore, the new solution allows for better flow while transporting crude oil.
