FORSA Flow Assurance Solutions

Proactively manage risks and keep production flowing

Production blockages can be caused by a variety of sources, including paraffin, asphaltenes, scale, and hydrates. All of these lead to costly issues like production loss, downtime, equipment repairs, and more.

The good news? You don't have to wait until there's a problem to take action. Baker Hughes FORSA™ flow assurance chemical solutions help you proactively mitigate these risks before they become big problems. From greenfield development projects to mature field operations, Baker Hughes helps you address flow challenges throughout the production lifecycle to avoid startup delays and well shut-ins and increase the profitability of your producing assets.
