Welcome to 2nd Edition of Indian
Oil & Gas Chemistry, Chemicals and Additives Conference (IOGCA 2019)


Chemistry and Chemicals are integral part of upstream as well as downstream Oil & Gas Industry. They play a significant role in drilling, well completion, well stimulation, water shut off, flow assurance, crude oil demulsification, corrosion inhibition, effluent treatment, microbiological controls, injection water treatment, enhanced oil recovery etc. in upstream oil and gas drilling and production. In downstream processes, they play role in catalysis, lubricants and greases, additives, absorption and adsorption, cleaning systems, cracking and fuel technology, heat exchange systems, sludge handling, H2S scavenging, pipeline transportation, solvents, polymers, corrosion inhibition, effluent treatment, microbiological issues etc. Chemicals are used as an oxygen scavenger, corrosion inhibitor, biocide, demulsifier, surfactants in several operations, solvents, paraffin inhibitor and dispersant, pout point depressant, drag reducer, polyelectrolyte, defoamer, deoiler etc. A broad range of chemicals has been developed by researchers and service providers to meet the challenges and provide new avenues. Chemistry of crude oil and water plays an important role in most of these applications of chemicals and hence their detailed analysis and characterization will also form a part of the discussion of this conference.

This is the 2nd edition of the conference on Oilfield Chemistry. The 1st edition was “Indian Oilfield Chemistry Conference 2018” in Ahmedabad on 27–28 September 2018. The 1st edition was highly successful, 45 plus Speakers, 200 plus Delegates & 90 plus companies from various countries like USA, Russia, UK, Sweden, Australia, Malaysia etc were present along with many branding partners.

IOGCA 2019 will provide an ideal platform for end users, industry, researchers, chemical manufacturers and academic experts to share experiences in managing the challenges that can be handled by chemicals and chemistry. This two day event will create opportunities for discussing and sharing new experiences in all aspects of chemicals and chemistry and is designed for industry professionals involved or interested in solutions for various challenges in Oil and Gas production, processing, handling and value addition through chemicals and chemistry.
