OLI Systems has a proven reputation in the global Oil & Gas and Chemicals sectors for helping companies overcome the challenges of corrosion. With comprehensive water chemistry expertise, OLI Systems enables customers to simulate field conditions with extreme accuracy to identify and predict at-risk areas for corrosion and other issues. In this study, a Product Application Engineer at CHIMEC S.p.A, enlisted OLI Systems’ electrolyte chemistry analysis capabilities as a part of the risk-based assessment to treat and prevent salt deposition and mitigate corrosion risk in Crude Oil refining and upgrading applications.

OLI is currently developing the predictive technology needed to design the extraction and purification processes for rare earth elements, yttrium and scandium (REY). These elements are critical to the modern economy, and as their demand increases, OLI will deliver the simulation technology used to design extraction processes that deliver higher yields, reduce costs and increase sustainability.  Dr. Gerbino will discuss the general chemical technology of REY extraction and how OLI contributes to this key industry.  He will describe the different chemical extraction processes associated with ores, clays, and waste materials. Finally, he will discuss OLI's plans to further develop the predictive chemistry needed to simulate solvent extraction and ion exchange processes, which are becoming key separation technologies for next generation REY extraction processes.

Lithium demand is expected to increase several-fold in this decade, and effective sourcing of lithium from existing and new deposits is the challenge moving forward.  The key sources of lithium include saline lakes (salars), lithium-bearing minerals, and to a lesser degree, lithium-bearing clays, recycled batteries, oilfield produced water, hydrothermal deposits, and seawater.  Extracting lithium from each source employs a different chemical process.  Understanding the chemical mechanisms of each process enables efficient and sustainable production, helping to maximize yields while lowering operations costs and maintaining environmental compliance.

Carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) are extremely important to reduce CO2 emissions to limit the global temperature rise. During carbon transportation, process impurities like NO2, SO2, H2S, etc can form highly corrosive acids that can lead to catastrophic failure of carbon steel pipelines or tanks. Understanding the electrolyte chemistry reactions of the impurities will enable accurate predictions of conditions under which they will react as well as when they can be innocuous. The key to effective simulation is the simultaneous prediction of both reaction equilibria and phase equilibria in dense phases dominated by CO2 to define safe operating windows for CO2 transport systems. OLI has partnered with the Norwegian Institute for Energy Technology (IFE) to develop accurate thermodynamic models in the OLI software platform to predict corrosive components based on the experimental work done by IFE.  These parameters can be used to predict safe operating windows for carbon transportation pipelines and shipping containers.
