Corrosion Inhibitors

Lonza’s corrosion-inhibition technologies improve material integrity and extend the lifetime of operating assets. Our chemistries are used as components in corrosion-inhibitor formulations for use in oil and gas production, drilling and stimulation with sweet or sour process conditions.

Biocides

Our biocides protect vital operating systems from bio-fouling and microbiologically-induced corrosion to support production reliability and eliminate downtime, helping to maximize customer profitability.

H2S Scavengers

Lonza's patent pending hydrogen sulfide scavenger is non-triazine based, and due to the neutral pH of the product does not promote mineral scaling or corrosion. Our product can be formulated into production chemicals that are injected downhole to add H2S removal functionality. Sourban® PW Product is compatible with most production chemical formulations and therefore is a feasible ingredient option for multi-functional products. Using Sourban® PW Product can eliminate the need to inject triazine-based H2S scavengers on the surface.
