Stepan Oilfield Solutions, a market vertical within Stepan Company, will be showcasing its capabilities at the Society of Petroleum Engineers’ (SPE) upcoming Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition (ATCE), Oct. 9 – 11 in San Antonio, TX.
The Stepan Oilfield Solutions team invites attendees to visit booth 2183 to snap photos in Stepan’s Digital Kiosk and hear about the dedicated resources and research capabilities available to customers at its R&D and Sales Center of Excellence in Houston.
A leader in oilfield surfactants for conventional and unconventional oil and gas recovery, Stepan Oilfield Solutions focuses on delivering surfactant science into all areas of the upstream sector — drilling, cementing, completions, hydraulic fracturing production and IOR/EOR. It will be debuting several new products at the show, including:
PETROSTEP AOS-LT-C is a freeze/thaw stable alpha olefin sulfonate (AOS) blend that does not form a gel when thawed, as ordinary AOS does. It needs only mild agitation to have a uniform solution after freezing and thawing. This is an excellent foamer for cold-weather oilfield sites.
PETROSTEP FRB-1 enables less expensive friction reducers to perform equal to or better than premium additives designed for brines with high total dissolved solids. In a Chandler 6500 Friction Flow Loop test, a basic friction reducer with our patent-pending PETROSTEP FRB-1 outperformed two premium additives made specifically for TDS brines in reducing inversion time, enhancing maximum friction reduction and extending the friction reducers performance over time.
PETROSTEP ME-1 helps hydraulic fracturing companies improve oil and gas recovery and production by enhancing the clean-up of fluids after stimulation. As a flowback aid, the PETROSTEP ME-1 is a fully dilutable microemulsion with a monomodal particle size of less than 10 nanometers (nm). This alleviates phase trapping, allowing the production fluid to flow back more quickly, helping increase the flow of oil and gas from the reservoir.
Stepan Oilfield Solutions is looking forward to connecting with other industry leaders at ATCE and business, sales and R&D team members from the U.S., Canada, Latin America and Asia Pacific will be on hand to discuss industry challenges and solutions at the show. Stepan Oilfield Solutions welcomes inquiries from the oil and gas market, and members of the press.
