Oil Field Chemical Solutions
In recent years, there have been significant changes in the Oil Field Chemical Solutions. Advances in both horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing have created both opportunities and challenges for oil exploration businesses. New formulations for drilling fluids, acidizing, cementing, well stimulation, fracturing, and production chemicals are being utilized to minimize the impact on the environment.
Oil and gas companies continue to explore new and improved methods of minimizing precipitation of iron compounds during acid treatments of wells. Tin compounds including stannous chloride have been gaining considerable popularity as an iron reducing agent (IRA).
Showa America supplies a number of high quality, environmentally friendly products to the oil and gas industry. In addition to stannous chloride, other oil field chemical solutions include tartaric acid, citric acid, lactic acid, and organic acids.
