What we offer
Oil and gas drilling operations are increasing as the global energy market continues to grow. To meet these demands, operators are being challenged to drill in harsher conditions while meeting economic and environmental targets.
Unconventional oil and gas production by hydraulic fracturing continues to grow as technology advances and the geographical reach widens to accommodate global energy demands. We are a leading provider of specialty frac fluids to the North American shale market.
Maintaining production and operating profitability relies on effective chemical solutions to address production optimization, flow assurance, and asset integrity challenges. Our global expertise in water intensive industries enables us to develop unique chemical solutions for use in your chemical management systems – improving operating efficiency and maximizing profitability in your upstream process.
Chemical EOR and IOR operations are designed to help operators extract more production and profit from new and mature hydrocarbon resources. To enhance your field economics, we have developed a number of solutions offering advanced, custom-designed polymer injection programs to improve recovery and release more profit with less risk.
The Canadian oil sands market presents unique challenges compared to conventional oil and gas production. The extraction of viscous hydrocarbons involves water intensive processes where maximum water efficiency is required. We offer a holistic approach to our oil sands customers, combining innovative technology, polymer hydration and injection equipment, and total chemical management through our technical field service and applications support teams.
Using our core competencies in polymer technology, we develop innovative solutions for oil-water-solids separation to the SAGD market and improved solid-liquid separation for the tailings encountered in surface mining.
We offer chemical solutions across all stages of the upstream oil and gas process. Whether you’re drilling new wells with KemDrill™ PHPAs or enhancing your oil recovery in mature fields with KemSweep™ polymers, we can offer chemical and application solutions.
Kemira can provide on-site services for our cEOR and IOR applications. Our Kemira MaxXtract™ program offers custom-designed polymer injection solutions where customers can choose from a combination of chemicals, equipment and managed field services to match your operational needs.
Global water management challenges are driving the industry to focus on how to reduce, reuse and recycle water in a responsible way. Our industry-leading global water treatment expertise provides solutions to cover the full water cycle. For example, our KemSep® and KemPhase™ chemistries help you minimize treatment costs and environmental risk.
As the oil and gas industry works to serve the needs of the growing global energy market, it is facing harsher environments and more technically challenging applications. Our global R&D centers are investing in innovation to ensure high-performance products, focusing on profitability, safety and sustainability.
Kemira KemConnect™ solution for smart process management enables effective control and monitoring of chemical applications. It provides 24/7 monitoring of polymer injection services in our Kemira MaxXtract EOR programs. The KemConnect™ SI and KemConnect™EOR detect residual KemGuard® scale inhibitors and KemSweep™ polymers on-site for rapid response to process changes.
Our EHSQ Policy requires that all manufacturing sites are certified in accordance with OHSAS 18001 management system standards for Occupational Health and Safety. We measure and report our safety performance with the TRIF indicator (Total Recordable Injury Frequency per million hours worked), and foster a strong safety culture.
Product stewardship at Kemira means that we ensure the products we supply can be safely used, and that chemical risk and impact evaluations are incorporated into our product lifecycle management approach.
