Crude petroleum quality improver

RDV® Technology

RDV technology is another of Globalquimica’s inventive and proprietary technology platforms. From it, it is possible to obtain effective chemical solutions for quality improvement and enhanced recovery of hydrocarbons.

The products derived from it are organic liquid compounds, designed for the treatment of light, medium, heavy, extra-heavy and bituminous sands crude oil. The products obtained with this technology are not the conventional mixtures that the oil industry has been using for more than 60 years. RDV chemical products are the result of the transformation and fusion of materials to obtain unique products in the market.

The mechanism of action of our technology is based on the protonation reaction. A common reaction in organic chemical reactions is the creation of high-energy particles, such as carbocation. In the presence of hydrocarbons, the non-thermal reaction is accelerated. Carbocations are intermediate agents and their presence triggers a high-energy response necessary for the hydrogen protonation process, a process that allows the carbon-carbon bonds to be broken resulting in the reduction of long-chain hydrocarbon complexes into short chains in a permanent and irreversible manner.

RDV products use the natural energy of the well and reservoir as catalysts to accelerate their protonation reaction. Therefore, the best use of RDV products is to be placed downhole and/or within the reservoir (take advantage of the well pressure/temperature). The reaction will remain active in the presence of temperature and pressure.

Products manufactured with RDV® technology are powerful surfactants that act as emulsion breakers. By transforming hydrocarbon chain structures, it does not act as a conventional treatment for dispersing or diluting organic deposits such as paraffine and asphaltenes. RDV® transforms their structures into lighter hydrocarbons and permanently integrates them into the crude oil.

All products manufactured with RDV® technology, both for heavy and light crudes, inhibit the formation of crystalline scale deposits, both by protonation reactions affecting sulfate compounds that may have the property of inducing oxidation in other substances. This causes the loss of electrons that usually facilitate their conglomeration with high frequency and in the formation of calcareous deposits.
