“We continue to listen to our clients and what we hear is that producers need to find economical ways to increase production in existing wellbores,” says Mike Burvill, vice president of fracturing services. “Our diverting agent is distinctive in that we can do extensive testing and provide custom tailored production chemicals specifically designed for each wellbore.”
STEP’s diverting agents are multi-modal diverting technologies tested in dynamic conditions that combine a number of environmentally friendly, slow degrading solids used as temporary blocking agents. The systems are excellent for fluid loss prevention, bridging, loss circulation prevention, conductivity improvement and fracture fluid diverting. The diverting agents are uniquely customized depending on the desired application, time and temperature. The rate of degradation can be controlled from hours to weeks depending on the product, particulate size and down-hole conditions.
