Published in Hart’s December 2020 IndustryVoice® on-line publication, the article “Fundamental chemistry and methodology proves successful in preventing polymer induced agglomerations – (“Goo”)” is accompanied by an extended interview with Innospec’s Dr. Kimberley MacEwen, Vice President Polymer Technology – Stimulation.
Both article and interview deal with a longstanding production–related byproduct nicknamed “Goo” which has long plagued operators—particularly those in iron-rich mineral basins such as Woodford/Cana, Delaware and portions of the Eagleford—by adhering to surface treating equipment and causing costly lost production.
Fortunately, there is now a proven solution: Innospec’s HiRate MAXX-3200G. This industry-first chemistry provides effective, efficient friction reduction at low concentrations and is completely immune to water chemistry—both immediately after treatment as well as long-term.
