In the normal application, of common oilfield
treatment chemicals the effects are usually rapid and somewhat
effective, but quickly need re-application of the treatment chemical to
assure that its effect will last. In many applications these treatments
are once or more a month. On the other hand, 54GO™’s unique additives are
designed to prolong these beneficial effects over a period of months and
In the general scheme of things 54GO™’s unique formula will promote four
specific chemical/physical activities that allow specific flow rates to
remain higher than sister untreated wells or wells treated with commonly
available chemicals. These four activities are summarized below.
1. Two of 54GO™’s major ingredients begin to rapidly soften a wide
variety of build-up products found in oil and gas wells. Because this
first step is critical these two starter ingredients are present in the
greatest quantity. As these starter chemicals begin to push apart the
“gunk” from the walls of the formation or pipe two of 54GO™’s chemicals
go to work.
2. These two intermediate action chemicals are common to a whole
family of similar products. Each will bind to a dissimilar surface and
begin to push apart closely related surface-active well products.
3. When this separation is complete two of the 54GO™ components
have now bound to two opposite surfaces of the well plugging products.
One of 54GO™’s components binds to the production zone formation, pipe or
fracture sand and produces a layer that is slicker [charge neutralized]
than these surfaces were before treatment. These surfaces tend to be
charged and will attract the slightly charged fractions of production
hydrocarbons and promulgate gunk formation. The other surface,
containing the other bound 54GO™ chemical, is now a moving hydrocarbon
front, which tends to be un-charged and unless is held apart will
coalesce into a plug or significant build-up of gunk. Both of which
decrease flow from the production system to the surface if not kept
mobile. With the gunk in a mobile phase it can now move out of the
formation and up the well and out. When the currently available products
are used they have a similar effectiveness to 54GO™.
4. However at this point the uniqueness of 54GO™ comes into it’s
own. At this time another different 54GO™ component binds to the chemical
layer covering the charged surfaces noted above. This last chemical
component is the key to 54GO™’s uniqueness, and because of this last
additive the effective pathways of common treatment chemicals and 54GO™
rapidly diverge. With common treatment chemicals the hydrocarbon flows
from the formation to the stem pipe and upward to the pipeline erode and
strip away the treatment chemicals from the charged surfaces, allowing
the build-up of gunk to begin, which will now decrease both liquid flow
and gas production. In the case of 54GO™ this final propriety chemical
binds strongly to the newly formed uncharged surface. This final
“chemical keystone” is bound sufficiently to allow the production
hydrocarbons, both liquid and gas, to continue to move along and across
the bound surfaces with a significantly reduced erosion rate, much like
chemical ball bearings.
In summary the unique aspects of 54GO™ are tied to it’s sequential
binding and/or chemical attachment to the active surfaces within the oil
and gas production system. This unique synergism adds to the economic
effectiveness of 54GO™. The uniqueness of
54GO™ is such that if it’s
chemicals are added to the system in a different order the process fails
to have synergism.
