Backed by world-class equipment and engineering support, qualified applications specialists, efficient manufacturing of quality water-soluble polymers, and optimized supply chain management, SNF is a recognized leader in the development of high-performance chemical solutions designed to exceed the needs of our customers in the Oil & Gas Industry.

SNF polymers are manufactured on 5 continents, which allows us to provide polymer solutions to the Oil & Gas Industry in a cost-effective, energy-efficient manner.  Regionally dedicated SNF Manufacturing, Engineering, Logistics, and Service Centers support our clients worldwide. 


In Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR), polymer flooding is a cost-effective approach to maximize the productivity of existing assets.

A polymer flood project can reduce water consumption by 80% per barrel of oil produced.  Likewise, the amount of CO2 required to produce a barrel is reduced by 66% due to a reduction in pumping energy.

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


SNF understands the challenges of working on projects in remote regions of the world where most oil and gas assets are located.

We also understand the critical nature of receiving products to support operations on time, in the quantities you need, and delivered in the most efficient manner possible.

SNF has years of successful experience in providing polymers to remote locations for oil and gas drilling, cementing, and completions.


Over the last 20 years, SNF acquired a solid understanding of clients’ constraints on oil fields. Combined with Polymer expertise we offer full engineering systems to optimize injection for polymer flooding applications.

Based on a modular approach, SNF developed Plug and Pump systems that can easily be transported and deployed on-site.  Adapted to any existing well configurations, our portable units enable polymer solution preparation and ensure quick and efficient injection once installed.



Increasing Operational Efficiency and Profitability

Achieving maximum production potential is crucial to the success and profitability of any well stimulation operation.  With world-leading manufacturing capability, dedicated global R&D, and technical support, SNF can help you realize that objective.
