ExxonMobil Chemical is demonstrating its continued leadership in hydrocarbon fluids by applying proprietary catalyst hydrogenation technology to introduce its Ultra-Low Aromatic (ULA) product family.
The technology enables the production of ULA fluids that comply with the most stringent environmental and regulatory requirements. This capability ensures that ExxonMobil customers will be able to access an ultra-low aromatic solution for their markets as the need arises.
“ExxonMobil Chemical is dedicated to the development of products that meet the highest performance standards and comply with applicable regulations,” said Xavier Milcent, global hydrocarbon fluids marketing manager, ExxonMobil Chemical. “This novel family of ULA fluids exemplifies this by providing customers an environmentally and cost effective solution.”
New products, established excellence
The first products of the ULA fluid family are Escaid 120 ULA for oil drilling applications and Exxsol D100 ULA for water treatment. They are pre-registered under REACH EU regulation.
ExxonMobil Chemical has been supplying the oil exploration industry with Escaid drilling fluids for decades. Long regarded as benchmark base oils for drilling fluids around the world, the global Escaid fluid portfolio is designed for the most demanding working temperature and pressure conditions. Escaid 120 ULA fluid adds the advantage of ultra-low aromatic content meeting market needs where preferred by users or by regulatory bodies.
Exxsol D100 fluid has a long history in water treatment applications. With the introduction of Exxsol D100 ULA fluid, users will benefit from similar performance capabilities with the added advantages of ultra-low aromatic content.
Looking forward, the Ultra-Low Aromatic product family will be progressively extended and made available to customers in all sectors of industry.
Solutions for sustainable growth
This new proprietary hydrogenation process also demonstrates ExxonMobil’s commitment to developing and deploying technology to help meet or exceed increasingly stringent regulatory and environmental requirements.
“Through the development of products such as ultra-low aromatic fluids, ExxonMobil Chemical strengthens its commitment to the principles of sustainable development that balance economic growth, social development and environmental concerns,” said Elissa Sterry, vice president for intermediates, ExxonMobil Chemical. “We take our responsibilities under these principles very seriously while working to meet rising global demand for energy resources.”
