Recover more volume and reduce decline curves with nanoActiv®
Recovery Factor Solutions
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.
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.
Enhanced Oil Recovery Case Study 1 – Arkoma
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, 420 days post-treatment, the incremental recovered volume is approximately 46,000 BOE. Treatment payback for the operator was approximately 90 days.
Enhanced Oil Recovery Case Study 2 – BUDA
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. Nearly 4 years post-treatment, the to-date incremental recovered volume is approximately 12,500 BOE. Treatment payback for the operator was approximately 270 days.
