EXPERTISE and KNOW-HOW

SNF has developed broad expertise in polymer-related engineering and equipment needs covering the entire polymer-based injection project cycle:

  • PF (Polymer Flooding)  – Mixing polymer with water to increase viscosity and enhance sweep efficiency
  • SP  – Injecting surfactant(s) to reduce interfacial tensions and polymer
  • ASP – Involves the injection of alkali, surfactant(s), and polymer
  • Water Treatment Specification and Integration
  • Friction Reducers for Hydraulic Fracturing
  • Other polymer applications

 

We rely on our local partners for the manufacturing of surface facilities.  SNF’s support of operations maintenance as well as the optimization of costs are achieved in addition to the promotion of local suppliers.


 

STANDARD MODULAR SOLUTIONS

Cost-Effective, Modular, Incremental Development

Modular units based on sea containers can be easily installed at existing well-site installations for controlled polymer injection.  This modular approach enables incremental deployment, from pilot tests through to full-field development.

Centralized polymer distribution facilities for are also available.


EQUIPMENT

Expertise in all Polymer-Based Application Equipment

SNF is dedicated to providing our customers with solutions that reduce environmental impact, while ensuring CAPEX optimization.

SNF has developed specific standardized equipment for efficient polymer injection, enabling maximum control of production parameters.


SPECIFIC DESIGN
