Non-emulsifiers for hydraulic fracturing

Emulsions between hydrocarbons and brines can form downhole, in the fractures and matrix rock, as well as in flowlines. Emulsions cause blockages in the hydrocarbon flow path and can slow down production. In addition, they can increase the cost of separation.

A non-emulsifier added to the fracturing or workover fluid can help prevent emulsions from forming. It ensures that the wells can operate at their optimum performance.

The PETROSTEP NE non-emulsifiers are unique surfactant blends, soluble in alcohol and aromatic solvents, and dispersible in both water and hydrocarbon fluids. They are easily formulated and compatible with most fracturing or workover fluids for a variety of applications.
