Libra Oil & Gas

Libra Speciality Chemicals has developed a range of surfactants and speciality chemicals that have specific applications within the oil and gas industry.

A large proportion of the World’s remaining oil reserves are located in ever more challenging surroundings that are often areas of environmental sensitivity. Whilst more stringent environmental legislation continues to limit the use of many of the commonly applied products, the LibraPhos range meets the exacting standards set by OSPAR and CEFAS.


LibraPhos is a range of phosphate ester based anionic surfactants that exhibit excellent emulsifying, dispersing, lubricating and corrosion inhibition properties. This range of products are suited to downhole applications as they can provide both lubrication and corrosion inhibition for the drillhead used.

LibraCare APG 0810 / APG 10

LibraCare APG 0810 and APG10 are alkyl polyglucoside based surfactants that are readily biodegradable and that are based upon renewable raw materials – coconut or palm kernel oil and corn. These products can be applied as corrosion inhibitors, well stimulators and also in rig wash solutions.

Libranox CAO

Libranox CAO amine oxide is a product that works to produce a dense, stable foam which can be used in the formulation of high alkalinity cleaning compounds. When sprayed onto contaminated equipment, the amine oxide allows for excellent adhesion to the surface, providing an extended dwell time as required.

Libratex DOS

Dioctylsulphosuccinates are excellent products for reducing surface tension and are therefore used as effective wetting agents. Libratex DOS can also be used in dewatering and dedusting in mineral processing as well as in emulsion polymerisation processes.
