Tailored polymers for a wide range of field conditions
To ensure optimal injectivity and sweep efficiency, we focus on four key field conditions:
- reservoir temperature
- divalent ion concentration
- salinity of injection and formation fluids, and
- reservoir permeability.
Salinity and divalent ion concentration of injection and formation fluids along with reservoir temperatures affect the viscosity and stability of the solution. Harsher conditions typically require sulphonated polymers. Molecular weight selection is driven by reservoir permeability range.
