Acid Corrosion Inhibitors/Intensifiers

15 or 28% Hydrochloric acids are often used to clean up a well, but it will also corrode the steel tubing rapidly (250-400F) unless you use our market leading Acid Corrosion Inhibitors – an essential addition to any stimulation job!

Emulsifiers

Ever wondered how the water wet hydrochloric acid mixes with the crude oil well fluids? Well they don’t…unless you use our tried and tested acid Emulsifiers. These ensure that the fluids mix homogenously and penetrate the reservoir deeper.

Mutual Solvents

Water and oil just don’t mix…so how do you ensure that your well will ‘come alive’ again after squeezing the acid? The answer is to use proven Mutual Solvents which stimulate the wells again, releasing the oil which would otherwise remain in the well formation.

Paraffin Treatment Additives

Wells which have aged and been producing for many years tend to collect wax or paraffin deposits which clog up the wells…acid doesn’t touch it, but specialized paraffin dissolvers do! These are essential to use in waxy ‘pay-zones’.

Scale Treatment Additives

Why use acid all the time when alternative chemistry is better and less damaging to the environment!! Scale doesn’t have to be a problem, so use the right chemistry…our Scale Inhibitors and Dissolvers.

Surfactants

Why use surfactants? Well, how do you ensure full low-interfacial tension penetration of the formation? With foaming surfactants these penetrate the rock better than acid alone – speeds up the operation and efficiency!

Clay Stabilizer

Clays are a complex mixture of inorganic elements…when exposed to hydrochloric acids they swell and close off the channels for the oil to flow. Why take the risk? Utilize our range of clay stabilizers to ensure the oil flows after the acid job.

Non-emulsifiers

Application of patented non-emulsifiers ensure that the produced fluids (the oil and the water) do not emulsify causing upset on the production process.

Acid Gellants

How do you ensure that the acid will stay in place in a vertical tubing? Answer is to make the acid ‘thick’ with acid gellants. These make the application of the acid 1,000 times more effective for contact time and gives much better results!

Friction Reducers

Friction reducers enables the use of a wide range of TDS waters, from fresh to flowback/produced waters especially for hydraulic fracturing applications. They consist of oil-external emulsions which leave less residues and yield higher viscosity to enable placement of higher concentrations of proppant slurries.

Biocide

Bacteria exist everywhere. If not handled correctly, the formation can become contaminated during a downhole intervention job using bacteria filled source water. This leads to introduction of oil devouring bacteria which converts the sulphates in the water to deadly hydrogen sulphide (H2S), souring the formation and making the crude oil more dangerous to handle and of lesser value.
