Whether used to remove damage, improve flow in the matrix or spearhead a hydraulic fracturing job, mineral and organic acids are used in most oilfield stimulation activities. WellChem Technologies continues to develop additives that help acids work more effectively and reduce potential problems, while keeping in mind the impacts on the health and safety of your stakeholders and on the environment.
WellChem Technologies™ develops acid corrosion inhibitors for all mineral and organic acid applications. Meeting our customers’ acidizing challenges—whether they be operational conditions, formation characteristics or environmental restrictions—is our goal in product development.
ACID EMULSION PREVENTION
WellChem Technologies™ offers proven non-emulsifiers for acidizing applications in oil producing formations. These products are formulated to prevent water-in-oil emulsions and to leave the producing formation water wet.
ACID PERFORMANCE ADDITIVES
Acid performance can sometimes be improved by increasing its viscosity and/or by slowing its reaction with the matrix. WellChem Technologies™ offers additives that can form acid gels, emulsions and foams as well as chemical acid retarders.
ACID SLUDGE PREVENTION
Sludge formation can ruin an otherwise well-designed acid stimulation job. WellChem Technologies™ offers additives that prevent acid-related sludge precipitation from asphaltenic crude oils, including additives that perform in 28 percent HCl and other challenging conditions.
