Dry Polymer Systems for Oil & Gas Wells

November 14, 2011

Fluid Dynamics’ dynaJET™ Dry Polymer Preparation technology is now available for use in oil-and-gas production applications as a way of maximizing the recoverable resources found in mature wells. The engineering team at Fluid Dynamics can design an entire system that meets the needs of a specific well. Many mature wells still have valuable recoverable resources buried deep within them, but the cost to bring these resources to the well’s surface can be prohibitive to the well’s operator. By using the dynaJET system to inject a mixture of dry polymer and water into oil-and-gas wells that have declining production rates, the wells can be “recharged.” According to the manufacturer, the long-term benefits of working these revitalized wells can include increased production, better operational efficiencies, revenue enhancement, less downtime, reduced environmental risk and reduced health and safety concerns for site personnel.
