Specialty additives for oil Treatment - Upstream and Downstream

Barcelonesa has developed a portfolio of products specially designed for oil exploitation, with the aim of optimising their different processes, which range from drilling to extraction and subsequent treatment.  

Our portfolio comprises both our own specialities, made to measure for each process, and customised commodities to yield optimum performance and profits.

Our team of specialised technicians can travel to the customer's facilities to formulate made-to-measure solutions that suit their needs. At our laboratories, the technical team is able to run tests for different types of crude oil and to develop formulations adapted to our customers’ requirements.


Barcelonesa has suitable manufacturing facilities, as well as its own logistics department for distributing its products worldwide.

All of our products undergo strict quality control testing and satisfy all of the applicable standards, with the aim of ensuring utmost respect for the environment.  

Our solutions comprise the following types of additives:

BD PETROMULSER range*: Range of products and intermediates specially formulated to achieve crude oil/water separation and greater drying adjusted to the conditions and characteristics of the production. Also have formulations to maintain the emulsion, properly, in the case of emulsifiers.

BD PETROFLOW FDF range*: This range of products and intermediates especially developed to reduce the shear stress to overcome the frictional resistance between the layers of the liquid, and so that the fluid continues to move through the tube, modifying the rheology of the mass of crude oil, with the objective of reducing its viscosity, increasing the flow rate and reducing transfer pump pressures.

BD PETROFLOW DRG range*: This range of products has been specially developed to modify the rheology of the mass of crude oil by reducing the friction or friction force that exists between the surface of the pipeline and the crude oil transported.

BD PETRODISPER PRF range*: This range of products aims to avoid precipitation of high molecular weight paraffin present in the mass crude oil. Paraffin precipitation leads to a decrease in productivity due to the blockage of wells and the pipeline.

BD PETROBITOR ASP range*: This product range aims to avoid the decline in productivity due to the blockage of wells and pipelines caused by deposits of asphaltenes.

BD PETROCIDE range*: This range of products is responsible for controlling the spread of bacteria, which can cause problems in production, both by increasing the rate of corrosion, and the generation of solids (iron sulphide) that could stabilise emulsions and therefore adversely affect the crude oil dehydration process.

Other biocides

BARTENSID BKC/50%: Benzalkonium Chloride.
BARTENSID GTD: Glutaraldehyde (Biocide).
BARTENSID THPS: Tetrakis (Hydroxymethyl) fosfonic sulfate; Better Biodegradability profile than GTD

Petroleo y perforación Tuberías Barcelonesa

BD PETROBITOR CRS range*: Range of products developed to protect equipment and pipes against corrosion, due to the susceptibility of the metal in environments that accelerate it, such as water, oxygen, H2S, bacteria, among others.

BD PETROFOAM range*: Range of products specially developed to control the formation of foam in certain processes of oil extraction and treatment.


BD PETRODISPER MDS range*: Range of products specially developed to facilitate the drilling process by suspending the mud in extreme pressure and temperature conditions.

BD PETROIDS DRLG range*: Range of products specially developed to generate more stable emulsions in drilling fluids in extreme temperature and pressure conditions.

BD PETROCLEAN range*: Range of products specially developed to clean crude oils on different surfaces.

*All our products can be customised. Each formulation can be adapted to productivity and economic needs providing optimal performance. Our technical department provides in situ support to analyse the operating conditions and make the necessary adaptations.


BARTENSID AOS: Alfa Olefine Sulfonate. Foaming and hydrotropic agent for enhanced oil recovery.
BARTENSID SLS: Sodium Lauril Sulfate. Foaming agent for enhanced oil recovery.
BARTENSID CAPB: Cocoamidopropylbetaine.  Foaming and thickening agent for enhanced oil recovery.
BARTENSID LABS/IPA: Dodecylbenzenesulfonate, IPA salt. Foaming agent containing amines

Progressive Acid Releaser:

BARTENSID DEGDF-E: Diethyleneglycol Diformate. Slow-releasing acid agent for drilling fluids; substitute for stronger/fast-reducing acids like HCl during ground breaking, thereby avoiding piping damage
