chemistry matters


completions 02

Innospec Oilfield Services (IOFS) prides itself on co-developing proprietary stimulation systems to solve complex reservoir problems, lessen formation damage, and reduce unnecessary expense. In addition, we’re adept at replacing chemicals with optimized systems that can help our customers improve their bottom line.

Taking a systems approach, IOFS’s technical teams work to optimize your fluid design by first reviewing the potential for production-related issues, and then, during stimulation, treating any issues that may arise. Next, we challenge conventional methodologies by building systems that reduce chemical usage and help reduce reservoir damage caused by lower polymer loadings  

Rather than compartmentalizing chemical programs, our focus is to start each project with a complete fluid analysis, then build a system that considers future production and helps secure flow assurance. We also understand that certain wells are more problematic and should be addressed separately for the purpose of reducing costs across the entire field. All to help you do more with less while further enhancing your results.

Green Oilfield Chemicals

IOFS takes seriously the concerns that regulators, customers and the community have regarding the use of oilfield chemicals. To that end, our nature-friendly products are developed to reduce the possibility of environmental hazards and drastically decrease the operational risk associated with stimulation and production chemicals. We strongly believe in using chemical products which, while being formulated for superior performance and cost effectiveness, are also engineered to help mitigate any negative impact on the environment and people.

Indeed, a notable percentage of our product components are used in the food industry and have already been approved for deployment in some of the world’s most environmentally sensitive areas.  More than just an oilfield chemical supplier, we think of ourselves as solutions providers. Everywhere IOS works, we partner with customers to assure that they get a superior return on the investment they make in their wells.

Onsite Services 

In everything we do, chemistry matters. From initial flow to expert on-site treatment and preventative services, QA/QC monitoring to onsite chemical inventory management, IOFS is one of the only chemical companies in the industry that can, and will, go the extra mile for each and every customer.

Unique among chemical suppliers, IOFS developed a process for providing onsite well services and technical support—one that combines our proprietary chemical tracking system with IOFS personnel who possess in-depth knowledge of both the chemicals and their delivery systems. IOFS experts are routinely located at the wellsite to closely monitor chemical performance and troubleshoot any issues that arise during treatments. Advanced preparation is also key. Pre-job pilot testing and chem-add bucket testing assures a greater likelihood of problem free pumping. Experience shows that when the fluid does drift out of specification while pumping, the problem is not typically related to the chemicals. Instead, it is more likely that the proportion of components in the well’s produced fluids have unexpectedly changed. Fortunately for customers, IOFS’s well site teams are trained to quickly identify and correct a wide variety of fluid problems, including those caused by chem-add pump or hose-related issues, faulty sampling sites or a sudden shift in water quality—to name just a few factors that can impair fluid performance and overall treatment success.

Product Categories:

IOFS’s full suite of discrete products and integrated fluid systems is specifically designed to address basin-specific requirements. Our completion chemical product line focuses on high quality, economic products that meet our rigorous QC testing protocol. IOFS labs test source waters extensively to make certain our products and fluid systems are compatible with operator supplied waters and other third-party supplied chemicals.
