Projects & Experience

Optum Energy Solutions was founded on the principles that there is a better way to meet pipeline optimization goals, reaching beyond simply injecting DRA.  Customers are seeking added value from their critical consumables suppliers, such as flow improvers, and Optum has forged a culture built on internal processes that create value for the customer at every contact point and delivery.

With this goal in mind, Optum gathered a team of leading scientists, technical specialists in drag reduction, and industry logistics professionals to complete the comprehensive value chain.  Optum has nearly 100 years of DRA experience covering all aspects of the pipeline DR process, many being involved in the earliest pipeline drag reducer projects.

We put our experience and know-how to work for our clients to deliver – to each site – consistent, quality DRA products from our reliable and user-friendly team.

Our line of flow improver products has solved pressure management problems and overall throughput limitations, all with a unique brand of dependability and reliability.

With our growing expertise and experience across Texas and New Mexico resulting in successful projects in the Delaware, Permian, Eagle Ford and Scoop Stack basins, Optum is equipped to meet the needs of the growing number of pipelines in the liquid rich basins across the United States.

While our focus is domestic pipeline optimization, our team can easily support global operations through our numerous trained distributors in Europe, the Middle East, South America and Mexico. With a wealth of international pipeline operation experience, Optum is positioned to advise how to best use DRA to meet optimization goals worldwide.
