Bellasol® H21 & Halite Deposition North Dakota A North Dakota oilfield operator manages several oil wells that have severe high salinity and hardness content in their produced waters. Bellasol H21 treatment decreases fresh water usage during downhole production and reduces water hauling costs.
Bellasol® H21 & Halite Scale Prevention Bakken Operator in the Bakken had been experiencing severe halite deposition and continuously decreasing oil and gas production. Bellasol H21 was applied to the well resulting in 50% increase in oil production (BOPD) & 55% increase in gas production (MCFD).
Bellasol® S50 Chemical Compatibility Phosphonates, a widely used scale control additive, were causing an emulsion to excessively stabilize the production fluids. Several demulsifiers failed to give the needed separation to provide the superior environmental outlook the company desired. Bellasol S50 replaced the phosphonates maintaining scale inhibition without compromising other chemical treatments and eliminating the emulsion issue caused by the phosphonates.
Geogard™ CA & Geothermal Systems Central American geothermal well plagued with calcium carbonate scaling and typically the wells are shut down for annual mechanical cleanings. Geogard CA eliminates mechanical cleanings of scaling in geothermal wells and reduces costs by more than 90%.
Geogard™ SX & Cold Reinjection A Philippines geothermal well was experiencing a significant problem with amorphous silica formation. General operational procedures used to clean these silica deposits were acidizing and mechanical means, which are both costly and pose clear health and safety concerns. Geogard SX controls silica scale, improves operational efficiency and the safety profile while reducing cost by 80%.
Geogard™ SX & Hot Injection A geothermal power plant facility in the Philippines was experiencing outages due to major scaling issues in production wellbores and pipe systems. Geogard SX eliminates scaling in geothermal production wells with 90% deposition rate reduction while reducing costs by 80%.
Industrial Water Treatment
Bellacide® 301 & Cost Reduction Under customer pressure to reduce the price of its water treatment service, a service company struggled to find additional cost savings. Compared to isothiazolone, Bellacide 301 reduced the cooling water treatment cost and improved water clarity.
Bellacide® 301 & Flooring A cooling tower at a flooring manufacturer was experiencing significant algae growth, especially during the summer. Bellacide 301 replaces DBNPA and biodispersant which in turn keeps the cooling tower algae free and reduces treatment costs by 60%.
Bellacide® 325 & Impoundment A holding pond for recirculating process water at a large Midwestern foundry was continually plagued with algae, fungi and bacteria. Bellacide 325 eliminates algae and fungi in a recirculating holding pond, eliminating process downtime.
Bellacide® 355/301 & Textile An air washer system at a large textile plant contained high levels of visual biofilm. The beach and glutaraldehyde treatment caused health, safety and odor issues. Bellacide 355 and Bellacide 301 eliminates the biofilm while reducing cooling water treatment costs by 50%.
Flocon® 135 & Scale Control for Ridgewood in Egypt Three reverse osmosis plants operating with borehole feedwater, calcium sulphate challenges had reduced the achievable recovery rate to 29%. Flocon® 135 improved recovery rates and managed the scaling risk potential.
Flocon® 260 & Scale Control in North Africa A membrane plant operating with seawater feedwater, operating with monthly CIP of membranes, associated membrane replacement and high volumes of CIP chemical usage, resulting in additional costs. Flocon® introduction contributed to >$1m savings.
