Hydrocarbon Recovery Technology

nanoActiv® HRT is a well additive treatment mechanically powered by highly surface-modified nanoparticles. These particles are designed to penetrate deep into the natural fracture network and persist with long efficacy to deliver increased and sustained oil and gas production.

The Challenge

One of the challenges facing the oil and gas industry is the constant pressure to replace production lost year after year. Operators are always looking for new and innovative ways to get more oil out of existing wells without expensive refracturing or other intervention technologies.

nanoActiv® Particle Between 12–15 nm

nanoActiv® HRT penetrates the fracture network on a nanoscopic scale with particles so small they reach hydrocarbons deep in the natural fracture network, where no product has ever been able to go.

The Solution

nanoActiv® HRT utilizes nano-sized particles in a colloidal dispersion. These particles behave as a wedge film driven by Brownian motion and diffusion defined as disjoining pressure — greatly facilitating and accelerating the mobility of gas, oil, and water, or mixtures thereof.

Application

nanoActiv® HRT is designed to be used in clean fluids. Its recommended use is as a pill or intermittent slug pumped ahead of or within each stage of a fracturing stimulation treatment, or as a stand-alone volume committed to a particular wellbore or surface facility remediation application. nanoActiv® HRT can be made available in neutral, low, or high pH fluid compatible formulations. High temperature formulations enable application with environments up to 350℉.
