Conformance

Conformance treatments are applied to injection wells to reduce the permeability in high permeability zones in order to increase the sweep efficiency of a waterflood or chemical flood. Water shut-off treatments are applied to production wells to reduce or totally shut off water production. Chemicals such as polymer gels can be used for these applications.

SNF offers a wide range of products these techniques:

  • Polymers reactive with organic or inorganic crosslinkers (Chromium, Aluminum, Zirconium, Titanium)
  • Crosslinked microgels
  • Nanogels
  • Micro-particles with delayed uncoiling
