Oilfield

Tylose® HEC is used by the oil and gas industry for various applications such as rheology modification in fluids for drilling and completion of petroleum and natural gas wells.

Oil and Gas Industry
Tylose is highly suitable in different oilfield applications

Furthermore, Tylose is used in hydraulic fracturing processes and it is an effective fluid-loss additive in well cements. Tylose HEC is compatible with most additives such as biocides, antifoaming agents, oxygen scavengers, fluid loss control additives and retarders. As a naturally derived polymer, it is easily biodegradable.

    Cementing

    Wells are often expected to produce hydrocarbons for a long period of time, which is only achievable with proper cementations of the well casing.

    Tylose® HEC adds important properties to the cement slurry. It minimizes fluid loss, enhances retardation of the slurry and modifies its rheology. Innovative Tylose HEC grades are suitable for use even in high temperature environments.

    Drilling and completion

    Tylose® HEC grades are used as viscosifiers in drilling fluids, particularly in heavy brines for completion and workover operations. Since Tylose HEC forms stable solutions with high salt concentrations, it is perfectly suitable for the viscosifying of these fluids. Use of Tylose HEC gives other benefits, such as higher drilling rates and increased oil production and it is easily degradable with chemical and enzyme based breakers.

    Fracturing

    Hydraulic fracturing enables production of natural gas from unconventional reservoirs but also enhances well productivity in conventional formations. High viscosity Tylose® grades can be cross-linked with various metal ions and are able to modify the rheology of fracturing fluids to transport proppants into the wellbore.

    After fracturing is completed, Tylose can easily be removed by chemical or enzymatic degradation, leaving no pore-plugging residues.


    For more information on Tylose grades for hydraulic fracturing operations, please contact us. 

    Tylose products provide the following properties for the oil and gas industry:

    • Rheology modification
    • High salt tolerance
    • Fluid loss minimization
    • Clear Solution

    Furthermore, Tylose HEC as a naturally derived polymer, is easily biodegradable.

    Oil and Gas Industry

    The choice of Tylose types depends on the application and the requirements, the most commonly used types are Tylose H and Tylose HC grades.

    Tylose HEC is used as a viscosifier in brines and saline fracturing fluids, workover fluids, completion fluids and drill-in fluids. In cementing applications, Tylose HEC minimizes fluid loss, enhances retardation of the slurry and modifies its rheology.
