Recovery Factor Solutions

Recover more volume and reduce decline curves with nanoActiv®

THE CHALLENGE

We are at the forefront of a paradigm shift of technical solutions increasing recovery factors. Capital markets are contracting, resulting in the need for lower cost methods to increase production, and well production and drilling rig counts are declining due to a lack of sustainable production efficiency techniques.

THE SOLUTION

nanoActiv® is the recovery factor solution to combat the production challenges operators face in today’s price environment. It is a multi-spectrum treatment for vertical and horizontal wells suffering from declined production with restrictions to fluid flowing into the wellbore. Nanoparticles are pumped into existing wellbores using nitrogen or carbon dioxide to enter microscopic pore throats not accessible with sand and water. The treatment enables the recovery of hydrocarbons to be accomplished faster, more completely, and with longer efficacy than existing options on the market today.

THE RESULTS

Enhanced Oil Recovery Case Study 1 – Arkoma

Pre-Treatment Production

  • BOPD: 6
  • MCFD: 1,238

Post-Treatment Production

  • BOPD: 6
  • MCFD: 2,220

Current Production

  • BOPD: 5
  • MCFD: 2,203

Arkoma 1 well was an Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) treatment performed in 2019. The well was drilled in 2017 with an initial production rate of 980 Mcfd of gas. By 2019, 30 days prior to treatment, the well was producing an average of 1,240 Mcfd. Post-treatment, the well increased gas production to an average of 2,220 Mcfd for 150 days. To-date, 180 days post-treatment, the incremental recovered volume is approximately 20,600 BOE. Treatment payback for the operator was approximately 90 days.

Payback: 90 Days
Incremental BOE: 20,600

Enhanced Oil Recovery Case Study 1 – BUDA

Pre-Treatment Production

  • BOPD: 2
  • MCFD: 30

Post-Treatment Production

  • BOPD: 13
  • MCFD: 205

Current Production

  • BOPD: 5
  • MCFD: 12

The BUDA 1 well was an early Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) case study performed in 2017 during the research and development phase. The well was drilled in 2011 with an initial production rate of 140 Bopd of oil and 1,400 Mcfd of gas. By 2017, 30 days prior to treatment, the well had fallen to an average of 2 Bopd and 30 Mcfd. Post-treatment, the well increased oil production to 11 Bopd for 180 days. ~1,000 days post-treatment, the to-date incremental recovered volume is approximately 11,600 BOE. Treatment payback for the operator was approximately 270 days.

Payback: 270 Days
Incremental BOE: 11,600
