Viscosity is basically the resistance offered during the flow of the fluids due to natural presence of internal friction between their particles. Fluid with high viscosity resists the motion as its molecular design offers a significant amount of internal friction. The physical significance of viscosity can be understood by the example of addition of turpentine into paints so that the paints become thinner, less viscous and suitable for further use.In various applications, high viscosity is undesirable as it reduces work efficiency. The advancements in chemical technology and research & development in this field has led for the emergence of viscosity reducing agents, which can reduce the viscosity of the fluids without changing their chemical properties and effectiveness.

Viscosity reducing agents are also known as the drag reducing agents, the additives that reduce the turbulence and improves the flow of fluids. Viscosity reducing agents are widely used in oil pipelines to improve the flow capacity and thus improving the productivity. They also reduce energy losses in pipelines. On crude oil exploration and production sites, the raw crude oil is highly viscous and thick in nature. The process to pump this heavy crude oil from the source becomes highly energy intensive. The addition of viscosity reducing agents reduces the viscosity of the crude oil, and in turn, the power requirement for pumping is also reduced. This lead to enhancement of the production efficiency of the plant along with decrease in production costs. Use of viscosity reducing agents also increases the overall operating life of transportation system of oil industries.
