Oil Stimulation and Completion
Stimulation and completion are both crucial stages within the oil recovery process that allow oil and gas to flow freely into the well and to the surface.
We are committed to working with our customers to help limit the environmental impact in this highly sensitive application, providing alternatives to more traditional chemistries, all whilst delivering maximum performance and facilitating maximum productivity from the well.
What is crude oil completion?
Completion involves altering the physical characteristics of the oil well, with the aim of bringing the drilled well into production and enhancing its production capabilities. Alterations include scale treatment, cleanout of any waxes present, acid stimulation, fracture stimulation, gravel packing, recompletion and reperforations.
What is crude oil stimulation?
Stimulation interventions may be performed to increase wellbore production and to improve the flow of hydrocarbons for recovery. These processes include hydraulic fracturing and acid stimulation. Chemicals used within stimulation processes play an important role in maximizing the productivity of existing wells and maturing fields.
