AssurEOR FLOW™

Highly-effective paraffin remediation providing
additional production increases of

up to
50%

Key Differentiators

  • Customized to paraffin type
  • Non-bacterial with no possibility of forming corrosive bio-films
  • Little to no shut-in time or nutrients pumped
  • No technical or safety issues with processing crude oil at refineries

Unparalleled Benefits

  • Improves the condition of flowlines & storage tanks
  • Increases production and recoverable reserves
  • Reduces operating costs

Maintenance Becomes
Profit

AssurEOR FLOW™ paraffin remediation treatments are specifically designed to remove paraffin buildup, disperse deposits and remove reservoir blockages that stress mechanical components and reduce production rates. When placed in contact with the producing formation, treatments return the reservoir to its “natural” water-wet state, resulting in increased oil and gas production.

AssurEOR FLOW is the only maintenance product that also increases production rates over baseline and recoverable reserves—meaning the treatments often pay for themselves. The HSE-friendly products are 100% biodegradable, low-toxicity and applied in the same manner as traditional well treatments.

AssurEOR FLOW
Proven Results

AssurEOR FLOW shows consistent positive results in paraffin dispersal, reduced LOE and production increases across well types and basins—benefits proven through a multitude of case studies.

When placed in contact with the producing formation, AssurEOR FLOW demonstrates clear, sustained, long-term increases in production rates.

In independent laboratory tests, AssurEOR FLOW exceeded the wax dispersion efficacy of Xylene and other solvents, significantly
outperforming 3 competitive dispersant samples.

About the AssurEOR FLOW
Technology

Offers enhanced production effect not seen with other paraffin dispersal technologies

  • Biosurfactants penetrate the nearby wellbore, reduce IFT and alter wettability of rock close to the wellbore to ease oil access and flow from pores
  • Biochemicals created during fermentation lower viscosity of crude oil, enabling easier flow out of the pores
  • Biochemicals can dissolve bio-polymers, such as polylactic acid (PLA) and guar, that might be blocking parts of the formation

Multiple mechanisms of action

  • Biosurfactants penetrate into the paraffin, increasing surface area for more effective dispersion
  • Disperses and liquefies paraffin through biosurfactant and solvent action
  • Liquefied paraffin is dissolved into crude oil production stream
  • No adverse impact on hydrocarbon profile or increase in acidity of crude oil

Ultimate compatibility

  • Does not contain any bacteria, eliminating any risk of corrosion through the formation of corrosive biofilms

No risk of corrosion

  • Effective in shallow and deep vertical wells, long and short horizontal wells, water floods and pipelines, and testing for offshore wells
  • Tolerant of high salinities, extreme bottom-hole temperatures, variabilities in porosities and permeabilities
