Novel production optimisation technologies
What is HydraCHEK?
HydraCHEK is a fast and user-friendly analytical solution that measures the concentration of hydrate inhibitor and salt in produced water samples taken from a pipeline.
This data is fed into the HydraFLASH model engine, yielding the actual phase boundary relative to operation conditions at a given point in time, allowing continuous inhibitor dosage optimisation.
The technology was key to Heriot-Watt Institute of GeoEnergy Engineering winning the Queen’s Anniversary Prize (2015), and has been deployed in many fields globally, yielding £100s of millions in additional revenue for clients through inhibitor cost savings and/or field life extension, while minimising environmental impacts.
HydraCHEK Equipment Demo & Sample Test
In this demonstration, Operations Manager Dr. Mohsen Hoopanah shows us the latest version of HydraCHEK’s equipment, and runs a sample test to demonstrate the process in conjunction with our HydraFLASH software

Why use HydraCHEK?
HydraCHEK has been extensively tested in the field and has been proven to develop robust calibrations for detecting different hydrate inhibitors and salt.
Ultimately, HydraCHEK is an economically ideal solution to the excessive hydrate inhibition issue and that is why it is in everyday use by major operators around the globe.
Watch Professor Bahman Tohidi Explain HydraCHEK's Capabilities:
How can HydraCHEK measure both salt and hydrate inhibitor concentrations simultaneously?
HydraCHEK measures two independent physical parameters; the speed of sound and the electrical conductivity to determine two unknown parameters; hydrate inhibitor and salt concentration. The measured speed of sound and electrical conductivity of a sample are input into an artificial neural network correlation that allows both the salt and inhibitor concentration to be determined.
