We strive to create value for our oil and gas customers by reducing water and energy consumption, eliminating downtime, extending equipment life, and protecting the environment.
In the oil and gas industry, obtaining the correct chemistry for your application can result in increased production, increased run time, and a longer lifecycle for your assets. Correct chemistry is just one part of the equation for a quality partnership between a chemical supplier and producer or asset owner; deep expertise and quality local service are also needed to ensure the correct chemistry is working to meet your needs.
ClearWater is a leading supplier of specialty chemicals in the region.Our field team members have an average of 15 years of experience living and working in the basins they support, solving the unique problems that arise every day for our oil and gas customers. ClearWater’s goal is to provide you with the best service through our extensive product knowledge and local expertise.
As one of the world’s experienced specialty chemical providers, ClearWater’s customized solutions address the challenges faced by water disposal asset owners. Our customized product lines cover the entire spectrum of challenges for disposal well operators, including increasing oil skim, H2S scavengers, biocides, scale and corrosion inhibitors, and other specialty chemicals.
Strategically Positioned to Meet the Needs of the Disposal Well Industry
ClearWater understands the variability of produced and flowback waters that enter your facilities. We offer the lowest-cost applications to help protect your assets, lower your operational costs, increase your profits through increased oil skim, and lower injection rate pressures while allowing for a higher throughput of water at regulated pressures.
Critical Systems Need Expert Care
The disposal well industry is a key component to the oil and gas sector, and serves a critical need to manage and process the industry’s wastewater. The volumes of produced and flowback waters that require deep well disposal is under scrutiny, but remains a critical need in every basin. As regulation and competition increases, disposal well owners and operators require expertise to solve their unique challenges, reduce costs, and increase profit while protecting their assets.
ClearWater experts can help evaluate the levels of valuable hydrocarbons entrapped in the waters going downhole and allow customer to increase their slop oil sales through the correct chemistry application for customers with valuable oil skim in their waters.
Injection Pressures and Seismic Concerns
Many operators will acidize their wells frequently and limit their downhole injection rates based on pressure. ClearWater’s custom formulations help operators minimize or eliminate well acid cleanings, protecting their assets while increasing the volumes of water injected at regulated pressures. This results in more revenue for the disposal well owner and increased service for their customers by minimizing wait times and ensuring deliveries are not turned away. The additional decrease in electrical costs on pumping systems and filter maintenance programs helps improve our customers’ bottom lines.
ClearWater’s simple strategy in the midstream oil & gas market is to provide superior service quickly, use the latest technology for long-term impact, and employ the best and most experienced local talent.
With the steady increase in natural gas supply and changing gas compositions, midstream players and E&P companies that own midstream assets are looking at ways to maximize their throughput without compromising profit in the face of gas price fluctuations. Many challenges also arise in the conditioning and processing of natural gas from the well head, through the gathering lines, and ultimately, to the treatment plant.
As one of the world’s largest providers of industrial chemical solutions and services, ClearWater is strategically positioned to meet these industry challenges. We have developed industry-focused solutions to improve the reliability of operations, protect employees and the environment, and make our customers more competitive.
In many cases, midstream producers have limited time and/or expertise to properly mitigate risks. Therefore, choosing a vendor partner to manage and optimize a system’s chemical needs is a decision producers cannot afford to get wrong.
ChemTreat has built lasting relationships with a wide range of valued oil and gas customers over the years. We have a better understanding of the unique problems our customers face on a daily basis, and we leverage this knowledge to create tailored treatment programs proven to protect your assets, keep operating costs manageable, and maximize critical process efficiency. It is this level of targeted expertise that allows us to prevent and troubleshoot problems before they can adversely impact our customers’ ability to accomplish their core mission.
