Fuel Additive Technology

Maximize ROI with better fuel additives

Baker Hughes fuel additive technology maximizes profitability by increasing fuel market value. Rely on our expertise in refineries, fuel terminals, pipelines, marine, biofuel plants, railroads, or power plants. Our fuel additive specialists offer superior service and logistical support from detailed product recommendations to comprehensive laboratory support.

We’ll also work with you to meet refinery industry specifications. We’re there at every step of the process.

Shale oil is becoming a favorite crude feed for refiners because it is cost effective and readily available. Baker Hughes customized chemical, service, and technology solutions solve the specific problems caused by shale oil during transportation, blending, and processing. We provide expert analysis and chemical solutions that help you improve operating margins at each step of the refining supply chain process.

Call us or send us an e-mail to learn more about how our fuel additive technology increases the value of your fuels, intermediates, and crude oils. Our fuel additive expertise includes antioxidants and fuel stabilizer; lubricity and conductivity improvers; hydrogen sulfide H2S and mercaptan scavengers; dehazers and demulsifiers; fuel biocide, cetane improver, and cold-flow additives; ferrous and nonferrous corrosion inhibitors; and multifunctional packages.


Heavy Fuel Oil Combustion Additives

Make a poor quality fuel a premium, saleable product. Our fuel additives improve the performance of and add value to HFO.


Cold-Flow Additives

TOLAD additives enhance the low-temperature handling properties of biofuels, petroleum fuels, residual oils, and crude oils.


Fuel Lubricity Improvers

Our improvers overcome the problems associated with the ultralow sulfur diesel (ULSD, or gas oil) lubricity specifications by replacing the fuel’s natural lubricity.


SULFIX H2S Scavengers

Our SULFIX™ H2S scavengers and services reduce the levels of hydrogen sulfide in crude oil, intermediates, and refined products for safer operations.


Cetane Improvers

Our cetane improvers increase diesel fuel cetane numbers so you can meet specifications, increasing the value and, ultimately, the profitability of your operations.


Fuel Dehazers

Our dehazers remove haze from gasoline, diesel, and gas oils. Haze can cause filter plugging, microbial activity, and corrosion.


Fuel Biocides

Decrease the microorganisms that thrive in water-contaminated fuel, causing biodeterioration and lost revenue. Maintain fuel quality, value and, ultimately, fuel profitability.


Rust Inhibitors

Our rust inhibitors—for gasoline, diesel, LPG, and jet fuel—extend pipeline and storage tank life, reducing maintenance cost and preserving fuel quality.


Conductivity Improvers

Our conductivity improvers dissipate the electrostatic charge that builds up when gasoline, jet fuel, or diesel fuel is transferred to minimize the risk of fire or explosion.


Non-Fe Corrosion Control

Protect copper and silver and their alloy parts commonly found in fuel systems. This is a quick and cost-effective way to improve finished fuel quality.



Retain maximum fuel value by eliminating degradation from oxidation. Our antioxidants terminate the cycle of free-radical generation that causes gums and insoluble residues.


Our PREPARED TO RESPOND™ services maximize profit by meeting fuel and crude oil specifications, increasing their value and marketability.
