Triple7 EOR is an advanced non-ionic micelle forming surfactant designed to enhance oil extraction from wells where primary, secondary and traditional EOR extraction techniques are no longer efficient.
Designed for low concentration surfactant assisted flooding Triple7 EOR increases field permeability, overcomes capillary force, cohesion force and conglutination force barriers to oil recovery.
Chemical Oil Recovery has quickly become the most significant and cost effective oil recovery method in use today due to its high yield, low energy use and low cost.
Of all chemical oil recovery methods Surfactant Enhanced Oil Recovery (SEOR) is by far the front-runner in increasing oil field outputs in both the short and long term.
When introduced to an oil field Triple7 EOR produces “ultra-low” interfacial tension between trapped oil and water allowing for more effective flooding and oil extraction.
Because Triple7 EOR forms short lived nano emulsions oil is easily reformed into bands for extraction.
Effective Where Traditional SEOR Methods Fail
Surfactant assisted water-flooding with Triple7 EOR is an effective method in low permeability reservoirs (0.1 – 100 mD) where it is difficult to inject water.
This tertiary oil recovery method remains effective where traditional polymer or alkali products cannot be introduced into the reservoir because permeability is too low, the temperature is too high, or the salinity is too high to use polymer.
This process can also be used where the amount of divalent cations is too high to use alkali.
