- Deepwater and ultra deepwater oil and gas wells
- Wells with high closure pressures (>8,000 PSI)
What is Sorb Ultra?
Our Sorb Ultra™ solid inhibitors, part of the StimPlus™ flow assurance service, is a chemical-infused proppant that can address your need for multiyear, offshore reservoir flow assurance. The newest addition to our field-proven Sorb product line, the Sorb Ultra solid inhibitor is designed for offshore applications and can withstand high closure pressures for deepwater wells. It is added during stimulation to mitigate or eliminate the need for an expensive and potentially damaging intervention due to scale, paraffin, bacteria, or asphaltene deposition.
How it works
High-strength Sorb Ultra solid inhibitor particles are engineered to serve as a conventional, medium-strength proppant but with an added benefit—the ability to provide long-term flow assurance. Delivered as part of an integrated StimPlus flow assurance service combining stimulation services and flow assurance chemistry, the Sorb Ultra solid inhibitor materials are placed in the near-wellbore environment and reservoir as part of the proppant pack and the chemicals are only released when needed.
Why apply Sorb Ultra solid inhibitor ?
You can delay or prevent costly production interruptions. You can provide inhibition in the reservoir for scale, paraffin and asphaltene. You can achieve long-term, multiyear inhibition. And, you can simplify the transition into production chemistry programs. In short, Sorb Ultra solid inhibitor delays, reduces, and/or eliminates the need for subsequent costly well interventions – improving your well’s economics.
