Case Study Snapshot

Challenge:

  • Customers are looking for an alternative to traditional hydrochloric or organic acid remediation treatments that is effective and is environmentally friendly.

Trican Innovation:

  • Trican developed our Synthetic acid system, a non-volatile, safe alternative with effective stimulation results for oil, gas and water injection/disposal wells.

Results:

  • The wells treated with Trican Synthetic Acid responded positively with the chemical treatment.
    Though it costs more than traditional acid systems, customers are opting for Synthetic Acid because it is highly effective, safer and less damaging to downhole equipment.

 


Business Need:

Our customer in Western Canada was looking for an alternative scale-stimulation treatment to traditional hydrochloric or organic acid remediation, to ensure better oil and gas production. The customer required an effective treatment that was environmentally friendly.
 

Trican Solution:

Trican developed our Synthetic Acid system, a non-volatile, safe alternative with effective stimulation results for oil, gas and water injection/disposal wells.
 
Synthetic Acid helps minimize the effect of hazardous chemicals on the environment, people and downhole equipment. Available in different concentrations, we used Synthetic Acid as an effective scale remover for our customer.
 
Details of the work:

  • Synthetic Acid – 25% concentration
  • Volume ranges from 2.00 - 10.0 m3 per well
  • Results of the treatment: the wells treated with Trican Synthetic Acid responded positively with the chemical treatment

The Trican Advantage:

Though it costs more than traditional acid systems, customers are opting for Synthetic Acid because it is highly effective, safer and less damaging to downhole equipment.

Synthetic Acid serves as an alternative to traditional hydrochloric and organic acids used in oilfield stimulations such as matrix treatment and fracturing. Compared to traditional Hydrochloric Acid, Synthetic Acid is less volatile and has low reactivity to metals, so there is less corrosion. Synthetic Acid reacts slower than hydrochloric acid and can penetrate deeper into the formation. Trican enhances the acid system with additives to ensure compatibility between the formation fluid and the acid blend.
