New Russian surfactants for oil production
PJSC “Gazprom Neft”together with its partners (“Salym Petroleum Development (SPD), University of Tyumen (UTMN)and NORCHEM) is implementing a program for developing of domestic surfactants for use in surfactant-polymer (SP) flooding. As a result of this work for the first time in Russia, 11 new surfactant agents have been synthesized, capable of replacing international competitive products. Even now under testing, the cost of domestic synthesized products is significantly lower than imported alternatives. The details about the project are available on the official website PJSC "Gazprom Neft" “Gazprom Neft”. It should be noted that NORCHEM specialists took part in all stages of the development of this project includingelaboration of mathematical models, evaluation of surfactant compositions, preparationofsamples for testing. Today, NORCHEM confirms its 100% readiness for industrial production.
