Demulsifiers or Demulsifying agents are a class of specialty chemicals to separate emulsions, such as, water in oil. As crude oil is produced from a reservoir, it mixes up with either natural formation water or mixed formation and injection water. It is a very important part of refining process operations where the crude oil is efficiently and quickly separated from the water, maximizing the crude oil value and minimizing operating costs.
