Oil & Gas

Increase production uptime
by reducing cleaning time
and equipment failure

The key to peak performance in the oil and gas industry is clean electrical and processing equipment.

Dry ice blasting is an environmentally responsible solution to a wide range of applications, including removing heavy bitumen and oil buildup to surface preparation for non-destructive testing in upstream, midstream and downstream environments.

Upstream

Remove heavy oil, carbon and paraffin buildup

BENEFITS

Dry ice blasting effectively cleans upstream oil and gas equipment more quickly and efficiently.

  • Clean in-place
  • No secondary waste stream
  • Dry process allows for immediate repainting or recoating after cleaning
  • Non-abrasive
    No damage to equipment
  • Minimal to no disassembly
  • More effective cleaning
  • Environmentally responsible

SPECIFIC USE CASES:

  • Oil, bitumen and corroding agent removal
  • Failed coating, corrosion, soluble salts and chloride removal
  • Wellhead equipment
  • Pipes
  • Valves and gauges
  • Pipelines
  • Pipeline pigs
  • Non-destructive testing
  • Hydrocarbon spills

Midstream

Clean and prepare surfaces for testing,
maintenance, repair or repainting

BENEFITS

Dry ice cleaning is a dry process that allows for cleaning and non-destructive testing without secondary waste.

  • No secondary waste stream
  • Dry process allows for immediate repainting or recoating after cleaning
  • Non-abrasive
    No damage to equipment
  • Minimal to no disassembly
  • Clean in-place
  • More effective cleaning
  • Environmentally responsible

SPECIFIC USE CASES:

  • Pipelines
  • Transport vehicles – Trucks and railcars
  • Failed coating, corrosion, soluble salts and chloride removal
  • Operational equipment
  • Tanks
  • Pressure vessels
  • Production vessels
  • Storage vessels
  • Hydrocarbon spills
  • Non-destructive testing

Downstream

Reduce unplanned maintenance and breakdowns by effectively cleaning refining equipment
