Pipeline Performance

KMG’s Pipeline Performance business is dedicated to providing high-performance products and services that optimize pipeline efficiency, lower operating costs and enhance safety for the global pipeline and energy market.

Flowchem is a leading global provider of drag-reducing agents (DRAs), related support services and equipment to midstream crude oil and refined fuel pipeline operators. DRAs are specialty chemicals used in midstream pipelines to reduce friction near the pipeline walls and within the turbulent fluid flowing through the pipeline network. By lessening fluid turbulence in pipelines, DRAs are highly effective in optimizing pipeline flow and lowering pipeline operating costs by increasing throughput capacity and reducing operating pressure.

From research and development to performance optimization, Flowchem is engaged in every phase of the DRA industry, including product manufacturing, inventory management, injection equipment design and installation.
