Global Oilfield Stimulation Chemicals Market: Overview
For improving and restoring the productivity of oil wells, stimulation process is carried out. To support and enhance the stimulation process during oil extraction, oil stimulation chemicals are used. These chemicals help in the free flow of hydrocarbons from the wells. Different chemicals are used for different processes of oil extraction such as acids, corrosion inhibitors, biocides, gelling agents/viscosities, friction reducers, water control polymers, iron control agents, and breakers. Among these, gelling agents or viscosities are the most widely used oilfield stimulation chemicals and acid stimulation is the technique, which is frequently adopted in oil extraction. Problems that may arise before and during oil extraction procedure can be solved by oilfield stimulation chemicals. It saves energy consumption during fracturing and reduces consumption of water.
