- Minimize downtime caused by near-wellbore corrosion
- Eliminate or reduce costly workovers
- Extend flow assurance by safely inhibiting both sweet and sour corrosive attack
Get assured corrosion protection for your downhole assets with the CorrSorbTM solid corrosion inhibitor from Baker Hughes. A controlled-release additive, CorrSorb inhibitor slowly desorbs from the proppant pack to provide immediate and long-term mitigation against corrosion to your downhole tubing and other equipment.
Extend the operating life of your downhole assets
The CorrSorb material comprises a specialty corrosion inhibitor chemistry adsorbed onto a dry, solid particle. The product is nominally within the mesh size of 20/40 proppant and is placed deep in the formation via a fracture, frac-pack, gravel-pack, or pre-packed screen system. When the well begins to produce, the corrosion inhibitor slowly desorbs into the water phase of the production stream, inhibiting corrosion in the near-wellbore area and tubing.
Get flexible, environmentally sustainable corrosion protection
CorrSorb inhibitor is part of the family of proven StimPlusTM products, which are easily added to your stimulation fluid to prevent deposition and costly production problems deep into the formation. CorrSorb inhibitor is compatible for use with a full range of common stimulation fluids.
Because the product is dry and inert, it can be easily cleaned up and will not contribute to chemical runoff if spilled. This is environmentally preferable to conventional liquid additives or batch- and continuous-injection liquid chemical systems.
The CorrSorb inhibitor is also a member of the SmartCareTM family of environmentally responsible chemical solutions, which helps ensure that you can achieve both your technical performance and environmental priorities. This product has been methodically vetted for health, safety, and environmental criteria, performance, consistency, compatibility, and value.
Work with our application experts to determine the optimal amount of CorrSorb material added to the proppant, based on crush and conductivity tests and the expected life of your treatment. Loadings greater than 2% by weight of proppant should be approved based on fracture closure pressure.
