This presentation will address the probable uses of PFAS in the petroleum and oil & gas industry. This presentation will address both “intentional use” additives that may be added to certain types of lubricants, engine oils, hydraulic fluids, as an additive, to reduce surface tension, prevent fires and evaporation and to provide anti-wear, anti-corrosion, and antifoam properties. In addition, this presentation will also address how PFAS compounds are found in petroleum products by “non-intentional uses,” such as impurities and contamination.
