As crude oil gravities fall below 23° API gravity, traditional DRA usually become ineffective due to crude makeup. LSPI was the first company to offer a drag reducing agent made specifically for heavy crude oil, and remains the industry leader. ExtremePower® flow improver has proven effective in multiple heavy oil grades, including: Western Canada Select, Castilla, Merey, SJVH and Petrozuata. ExtremePower flow improver can provide over 50 percent drag reduction in heavy oil pipelines operating in turbulent conditions. Drag reduction is possible in turbulent or transitional flow, but not possible in laminar flow.
