LiquidPower Specialty Products Inc. (LSPI), a Berkshire Hathaway Company, is the global leader in the science and application of drag reduction. LSPI specializes in maximizing the flow potential of pipelines, increasing operational flexibility and throughput capacity, and substantially increasing bottom-line profit potentials.
LSPI developed its pioneering technology in the 1970s, using flow improvers (also known as drag reducing agents, or DRA) to lower frictional energy loss by reducing turbulence in the pipeline. This technology allows pipeline operators to increase throughput and reduce energy costs while limiting capital investment. Since inception, LSPI has continued to develop innovative flow improver solutions, working with customers in over 40 countries on 6 continents, and treating over 50 million barrels of hydrocarbon liquids per day. LSPI’s portfolio of application-specific flow improvers offers reliable DRA performance and maximum profitability.
LSPI’s DRA offering is part of a comprehensive, full-service solution that encompasses industry-leading technology, quality manufacturing, technical support and consulting, reliable supply chain, and injection equipment and field service. This business model ensures that customers receive best-in-class service. The overall program is also greater than the sum of its individual parts as each component is designed, operated and managed to complement the other elements. With LSPI’s full-service approach, customers can focus on their primary roles and responsibilities, knowing that any question regarding their DRA operations can be addressed by making a single phone call to LSPI.
