OIL & GAS
Following drilling, completion and stimulation operations prepare the reservoir and well for production. Evonik’s chemistries are used for biocides, cleaning, flow improve-ment, friction reduction and downhole surface modification.
What Evonik brings to the Application
Acid Gas Thickener
Additives to be used in hydraulic fracturing, with HCl and gellants.
PEG 2 Tallow Amine
Finished products for use as an oilfield biocide and oxidizing agent for produced water clean up, frac water pre-treatment and oxidizing organics, bacteria and iron sulfide. Evonik’s biocide has federal EPA approval.
Additives to be used in formulations of corrosion inhibitor chemistries.
Defoamer and Defoamer Agents
Additives for water treatment, drilling and fracturing fluids.
Fluid Loss Agents
Building blocks to make polymers that prevent the loss of fluid to the
Foamers & Foaming Agents
Chemistries (additives and finished products) to be used downhole as a foam stabilizer/ wetting agent in hard water, for drilling muds, foam enhancement in foam fracturing and oil displacement.
Fracturing Fluid Additives
Additives to modify rheological properties of supercritical gases (CO2) to improve sweep efficiency.
Free Flow / Anti- Caking Agents
Additives to help prevent formation of lumps and improve flow of powders.
Agents to assist with gel texture, including in hydrochloric acids.
Liquid to Powder Conversion
To convert difficult-to-handle liquids (freezable, very viscous, hygroscopic) into powders.
Superabsorbents for loss control applications.
Proppant Coatings and Proppant Agents
Additives to improve adhesion of the resin coating to proppants.
Rheology Modifiers and Viscosifiers
Additives to support the development of polymers and alter rheological properties including control of sagging, settling, stability and processability of liquids and powders.
Prevent scale deposition on pipelines & flowlines.
Low molecular weight
Finished products which can be used in oilfield service operations to remove scale in wellbore or near wellbore radius.
Building blocks for the production of shale control polymers.
Slurry additives to render particulate surfaces extremely hydrophobic.
Superabsorbents for general solidification and absorbing applications.
Building block to make cationic water soluble polymer to treat production waste water.
Additives to help reduce the surface tension of a liquid, causing the liquid to spread across or penetrate more easily the surface of a solid.
