Headlined by our well-known Silbreak* brand products, our demulsifiers can typically provide exceptional performance when used as the only demulsifying agent. Alternatively, they may deliver a remarkable boost in the speed of separation when used in combination with organic demulsifers. Momentive demulsifying agents combine the high surface activity of silicone polymers with the water or oil solubility of organic substituents. Because of these properties, they provide faster separation of water from crude oil, generally reduce sludge and also often demonstrate superior foam control.
As non-emulsifiers, our products may help to prevent damage to the producing formation, increase oil or gas production, and decrease liquid flow back. They are compatible and soluble, and form a clear solution with fracturing/completion fluid; and they are robust in a high salt environment. Emulsion prevention applications during well stimulation and drilling include fracturing, completion, acid stimulation and drilling operations.
Discover how our demulsifiers and non-emulsifiers may effectively and efficiently enhance your operations.
