The treatment enables the recovery of hydrocarbons to be accomplished faster, more completely, and with longer efficacy than existing options on the market today.
Combining properties of gas and nanoparticles creates a unique, synergistic treatment that addresses several potential production issues simultaneously.
The gas helps remove debris, fines and other matter and stimulates the well with pressure, while driving the effective distribution of the nanoActiv® particles to deeper parts of the formation. In cases where the gas is miscible, it also contributes to mobilizing crude oil due to swelling and viscosity reduction.
nanoActiv® nano-sized particles penetrate further and more thoroughly permeate the natural fracture network than traditional remediation or restimulation technologies. These particles produce a Brownian-motion, diffusion-driven mechanism, known as disjoining pressure, resulting in longer and more complete production efficacy. Field application data validates that particles pushed with Messer gas produce significant and sustained improved hydrocarbon recovery.
Our solution is a prescribed, well remediation treatment (Huff ’n Puff) consisting of three phases: injection, soaking and production. Because of the synergies between the nanoActiv® and Messer gas, the soak times can be dramatically reduced from traditional HnP treatments. Depending on the type of formation, well history, and identified issues, a specific treatment plan is prescribed.
