Oilfield Chemistry

Oil production is a technically sophisticated and multi-stage process that requires continuous control and tricky analytical decisions. To increase production efficiency, producers use a variety of process fluids and chemicals, which are selected by oilfield chemistry specialists at Gazpromneft STC.

Oilfield Chemistry

Our experts know how to manage reservoirs for maximum oil recovery in different phases of development, and which chemicals to use for better operational reliability of downhole and surface equipment.

The use of special inhibitors during well operation allows preventing deposition of inorganic salts or sediments that may reduce well flow rate and increase production cost. Other chemicals prevent equipment corrosion caused by high formation temperature, pressure and presence of carbon dioxide, help extend service life and reduce maintenance costs.

STC specialists never stop looking for and introducing new technologies that make oil production more efficient by taking into consideration the specific features of an oil field and select the best chemical compositions for certain reservoir conditions. STC’s oilfield chemistry specialists are authors of a number of inventions designed at Gazpromneft STC, including the technique of surfactant concentration in process fluids. This technique helps assess the quality of chemicals used at oil fields.
