Enhanced Oil Recovery


Enhanced recovery in the world's most challenging environments

Enhanced Oil Recovery

Control bacteria, break polymers and increase injectivity with minimal environmental impact using the oxidative power of Chlorine Dioxide

Quick Fact

A fully containerised water treatment plant, built in Scotland and installed on-site in Iraq by Scotmas now results in additonal oil production of 150,000 barrels per day

The oil and gas industry faces challenging times, with cost pressures and tighter environmental regulation. The use of non-oxidising biocides such as glutaraldehyde and quaternary ammonium has led to increasing concerns around environmental persistence and safety and handling concerns for these toxic chemicals.
Chlorine dioxide is different. It kills bacteria, and breaks down complex well-blocking compounds by pure oxidative action. When finished its work, it degrades to simple salt, leaving no persistent chlorinated by-products when compared to chlorine and “mixed oxidant” solutions.
Scotmas down well ClO2 systems have been designed from the ground up to deliver high performance and unparalled safety features suitable for ATEX environments. The low dose rates required by ClO2, and the precision dosing capabilities of our equipment mean that chemical handling and logistics concerns are minimised.
Our Projects team offer a range of skid mounted and containerised systems suitable for permanent or mobile application in the most challenging and hazardous environments. Our on site engineering support capabilities cover offshore deep-well applications through to onshore applications in challenging geographies around the world.
