Mehdi Bahraini, acting head of ICOFC Research and Development department announced that Iranian Central Oil Fields Company had managed to produce demulsifiers (emulsion breakers) for heavy crude oilfields in the realm of the company, adding, the project had been accomplished with the help of Shiraz University and under the supervision of SZOGPC R&D in 3 years.

Bahraini referred to the high cost of importing demulsifiers from the countries having the technical know-how of manufacturing such substance and said a research team at Shiraz University together with R and D department at ICOFC began the project in 2009 and ever since they have achieved to domestically produce demulsifiers and implement pilot desalting projects as well.

According to ICOFC Public Relations as crude oil is produced from a reservoir it tends to become mixed with either natural formation water or mixed formation and injection water. Therefore, demulsification is used to separate water from crude oil.
