Surfactants are an important group of chemicals that are used to enhance fluid recovery after fracturing. Selecting the right surfactant combination is key to optimizing fluid recovery, particularly when the product is designed to be multifunctional. Innospec Oilfield Services (IOFS) offers a wide-range of flowback surfactant systems specifically designed to enhance treatment fluid recovery, prevent down-hole emulsions, and improve IP and long-term production after fracturing.
OFS technical experts were able to develop a proprietary blend of surfactants that allows for superior flowback recovery performance at loadings as low as 1 gpt. Surf-Flo 430 is optimized to work in fresh water, KCl water and TDS fluids.
