Sustainable Natural Polymer for Enhanced Oil Recovery

Green and Sustainable Natural Polymer for Enhanced Oil Recovery

ALOERECOVER™1-BIO  - A NEW GREEN AND ECO FRIENDLY ALOE BASED PRODUCT FOR USE IN ENHANCED OIL RECOVERY (EOR) METHODS USING ASP PROCEDURES  IN THE OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY. A NATURAL POLYMER DESIGNED TO IMPROVE THE CHEMICAL INJECTION IN THE EOR OPERATIONS.  

ALOERECOVER™1-BIO is a new and unique green product for use as natural polymer in the ASP (alkali, surfactant and polymer) method of Enhanced Oil Recovery in the oil and gas industry. It was developed to offer an environmentally friendly product and a new “green” option to improve the chemical injection method in EOR

Our technological solution ALOERECOVER™1-BIO is a new green polymer that offers the viscoelastic properties required by the process, while offering a solution to the scale formation issue, since our formulation inhibits scale formation and also inhibits corrosion. Also, ALOERECOVER™1-BIO is not susceptible of bacterial degradation as xantam gum, since aloe has many antibacterial and antifungal properties.

It is accepted that viscoelasticity of polymer solution flow is the main cause of the increase in oil displacement efficiency. Therefore, ALOERECOVER™1-BIO is a perfect solution to increase viscoelasticity, providing antibacterial action and inhibiting scale formation, thus achieving excellent results in the EOR process using the ASP procedure. 

The injection of ALOERECOVER™1-BIO as a polymer solution increases the viscosity of displacing fluid and reduces the effective permeability to water. Microscopic displacement efficiency can be improved by injection of alkali and surfactant by several mechanism viz., reduction of the IFT, emulsification of oil and water, solubilisation of interfacial films, wettability reversal, etc. 

ALOERECOVER™1-BIO is a plant-based extract, is biodegradable, has no chemicals, toxic components or heavy metals, and comes from a plant that is a renewable material. 

ALOERECOVER™1-BIO is a proprietary formulation, a natural product based on a blend of polysaccharides, enzymes, amino acids and anthraquinones obtained from aloe, with added preservatives.

Application

ALOERECOVER™1-BIO is a product developed for use as natural polymer in the ASP (alkali, surfactant and polymer) method of Enhanced Oil Recovery in the oil and gas industry and should be used as an environmentally friendly solution. 

ALOERECOVER™1-BIO  can be used in conjunction with other environmentally friendly aloe based products, such as ALOEGEL™ 1-BIO, ALOEFLOC™ 1-BIO, ALOECOAG™ 1-BIO, INCORALOE™1-BIO, INHISCALE™ 1-BIO and ALOESAP™ 17-BIO.

 

Properties 
 

Appearance: Viscous liquid

Odor: Typically to Aloe, green vegetables 

Color: Amber to dark brown 

pH: 4 to 6

Contains Polysaccharides, aminoacids and anthraquinones

 

Dosage

ALOERECOVER™1-BIO is a product to be mixed with alkali and surfactant in the ASP method of Enhanced Oil Recovery.

Depending on the formation, dosage may go from 2000 to 4500 PPM.

If ALOERECOVER™1-BIO is used without other polymer, we recommend 3500 to 4500 PPM dosage.

If ALOERECOVER™1-BIO is used with other polymer -xantham fum, we recommend 1500 to 2000 PPM dosage.

Ideal dosage for the ASP formulation is to mix If ALOERECOVER™1-BIO as natural polymer, sodium carbonate (0.7% wt/wt) and any surfactant (2% wt/wt).
