Reducing Water Consumption and CO2 Emissions

With Enhanced Oil Recovery, (EOR) oilfield operators that utilize polymers in their polymer flooding operations are able to extend the life of their mixing and injection equipment with the use of SNF polymers.

A polymer flood project will reduce the water needed to produce a barrel of oil by more than 80%. Likewise, the amount of CO2 required to produce a  barrel is reduced by 66% thanks to a reduction in the pumping energy.

In Hydraulic Fracturing, our polymers reduce the required energy for oil extraction by more than 50%, thereby reducing CO2 emissions as well.
