ActiveEOR® for Carbonate Wettability

alter wettability from oil-wet to highly water-wet at high temperatures

ActiveEOR® can significantly improve wettability in carbonate reservoirs, even at the high temperatures needed for steam flooding. Oil-wet characteristics make steam flooding and SAGD difficult in some reservoirs. ActiveEOR® not only survives the high temperatures needed for steam injection, but helps alter the wettability characteristics from oil-wet to highly water-wet. Initial evaluations have shown promising results with carbonate core samples changing from highly oil-wet to highly water-wet after treatment. ActiveEOR® can help address the needs of underdeveloped reserves, like Grossmont, which suffer from lack of a wettability-altering chemicals.
