Enhanced Oil Recovery Chemicals

Pulp & Paper

Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) is the implementation of various techniques for increasing the amount of crude oil that can be extracted from an oil field. There are three primary techniques for EOR: thermal recovery, gas injection, and chemical injection. The department of energy has estimated that 30 to 60 percent, or more, of the reservoir's original oil can be extracted using EOR techniques. Chemical injection, which can involve the use of long-chained polymers to increase the effectiveness of waterfloods, accounts for about one percent of EOR production in the United States. Synthex Organics manufactures surfactants, polymers, viscosity modifiers and antifoams used in chemical injection applications.

Friction Reducers - Selecting the right friction reducer significantly impacts equipment life and operating costs. To reduce the loss of pressure from frictional forces within pipes fracking water is treated with friction reducers. Friction reducers are high-molecular weight polymers of acrylamide in an oil emulsion. Cationic or anionic emulsion polymer that can reduce friction pressures of water by more than 70% reducing the energy required for pumping. Synthex Organics manufactures a diverse selection of friction reducers to suit your needs.

H2S Scavengers - Effective removal of hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide from gas is a critical step in improving safety and protecting equipment. Synthex Organics can provide you with H2S gas scavengers, improving product quality with a focus on safety.

Water Treatment - Synthex Organics manufactures products used in every phase of water treatment. We have the experience and expertise to help you optimize the performance of your boiler systems, cooling water systems, raw water and produced water treatment systems. Our Total Systems Approach and Total Cost of Operations philosophy to problem solving and chemical applications will help you achieve process, production and profit goals.

Foam Control - Defoamers and antifoams provide a means to control the level of foam and/or eliminate nuisance foams that interfere with control of production processes. Synthex Organics has a wide range of products that can achieve control in your facility. As a manufacturer, Synthex Organics can develop customized formulations that outperform off-the-shelf products in almost every application. Contact Synthex Organics for more information and to see how we can help you in all of your drilling operations.

Corrosion inhibitors - Asset protection optimizes the performance of plant equipment and minimizes maintenance and capital replacement costs. Corrosion inhibitors manufactured by Synthex Organics will help you protect critical operating assets and improve your bottom line profits. Contact Synthex Organics team of professionals to see how we can help.

Scale control - Scale inhibitors can eliminate the precipitation of solids on heat transfer surfaces, piping and equipment. Mineral scale is formed when one or more elements becomes supersaturated in a solution, Synthex Organics manufactures a broad spectrum of scale inhibitors for applications from the reservoir through the pipeline.
