SNF provides a complete range of design and fabrication engineering services for polymer injection, either based on standard modular units or engineered, tailor-made and fully-integrated solutions.  SNF provides support for:

  • Conceptual/Feasibility Studies
  • FEED (Front-End Engineering and Design) Studies
  • Detailed Engineering

Deployment of EOR solutions depends on injectivity tests (or single well tracer tests) and/or through the execution of pilot facilities.  Eventually, full-field deployment may be considered with incremental, modular, or standardized equipment to limit risk and diversify investment.  Large central facilities that distribute polymer solutions throughout the entire oilfield are also available.

Our Engineering Team can handle specific projects to meet customer requirements and environmental constraints.  We can also deliver complete solutions while managing turnkey projects from design to operation.

Yard Tests

Near SNF manufacturing sites and engineering centers, specific yard testing facilities enable testing of new polymer related devices and technologies, and to assess new polymers with existing equipment.   Specific tests for customers can thus be performed under various field conditions including type of brine, temperature, and equipment.

Tests offered:

  • Polymer Degradation Through Wellhead Equipment
  • Polymer Degradation Through Choke Valves
  • Pressure Drop Flow Loop
  • Emulsion Inversion
  • Polymer Dissolution Tests

Commissioning and Start-Up

Prior to commissioning, SNF supports customers by advising them on installation and set-up of polymer injection facilities.

Flawless start-up of polymer injection is crucial and essential.  SNF also provides support for commissioning.  Specific start-up procedures enable customers to ramp-up their systems in order to check the main injection parameters as it relates to design requirements.

Training and Troubleshooting

SNF provides specific training on how to use our equipment and run injection facilities.  This educational guidance is meant to provide operational autonomy to facility operators.

In addition, SNF is always available, both on-call or with site visits to provide troubleshooting services.  Also remote control operation of your system may be an available option to assist operators during production.

Operation and Maintenance Support

SNF operational experience within different constraining environments has led to an optimized maintenance program.  Throughout the  project life cycle, our dedicated Operations and Maintenance Support Team can be quickly mobilized.  This service may include basic laboratory analyses and chemicals management.
