Projects / Case 3: Pour Point Crude


Fixing a pour point problem and reducing costs

WRT was approached by a client experiencing a pour point problem while trying to discharge their crude oil. The low pour point indicates the minimum temperature at which a liquid can flow, and a higher pour point makes it difficult to remove the oil from the vessel.

By leveraging their extensive product database, we found a pour point depressant suitable for improving the crude oil’s pour point. This made handling, transporting, and storing crude oil easier.

WRT took all necessary measures before the vessel arrived at the terminal to ensure a smooth and efficient discharge process. This involved coordinating with the terminal and other stakeholders to ensure all required equipment and personnel were present for safe and efficient crude oil discharge.

Our solution significantly reduced demurrage, as the crude oil’s improved flowability allowed for quicker and more efficient discharge. This reduced the amount of time the vessel spent in port.

We also ensured that all safety expectations were met during the discharge process. This would have included taking appropriate measures to mitigate any risks associated with the discharge of the crude oil, such as ensuring that spill response equipment was readily available and that all personnel involved in the process were trained and equipped to handle any potential issues.

Our pour point depressant solution helped the client to optimize their operations and reduce costs while ensuring the safety of the discharge process.
