An HSE-Friendly
Solution

Locus Bio-Energy has developed a patent-pending paraffin treatment product specifically designed to remove paraffin buildup that stress mechanical components, reduce interfacial tension, and remove biofilms that clog channels. AssurEOR FLOW has been shown to increase production and recoverable reserves—so much so that treatments often pay for themselves. It is 100% biodegradable, non-toxic and is applied in the same manner as traditional treatments.

AssurEOR FLOW Case History

A 70 well production case study in the Appalachian Basin confirmed paraffin dispersal, reduced LOE and consistent increases in production—consistent with what we are seeing with all customers.

The wells selected were a random mix of horizontal and vertical wells ranging in depth between 2000’ and 6000’ that were previously treated bimonthly with a mix of solvent and condensate. AssurEOR FLOW treatments began in month 82, with the wells kept on the same bimonthly application schedule.

Results show:
  • 50% increase in production over the forecast production (shown in the decline curve)
  • 15,369 barrels of incremental oil produced
  • No well failures during length of the study due to paraffin accumulation

About the AssurEOR FLOW Technology

Multiple mechanisms of action

  • Disperses paraffin by emulsification and bio-solvents generated during fermentation
  • Keeps dispersed paraffin suspended in solution with bio-solvents and bio-surfactants
  • Bio-surfactants penetrate into the paraffin, increasing surface area for dispersing
  • No adverse impact on hydrocarbon profile or increase in acidity

Offers enhanced production effect not seen with other technologies

  • Bio-surfactants reduce IFT and alter wettability of rock close to the wellbore to ease oil access and flow from pores
  • With subsequent treatments, bio-surfactants can penetrate and act further into the formation
  • Bio-chemicals created during fermentation lower viscosity of crude oil, enabling easier flow out of the pores
  • Bio-chemicals created during fermentation progressively dissolve bio-polymers, such as polylactic acid (PLA) and guar, that might be blocking parts of the formation

No risk of corrosion

  • As our biochemical product does not contain any bacteria, there is no risk of corrosion through the formation of corrosive biofilms
