Properties

BTC provides a diverse portfolio of stimulation additives designed to enhance and support the stimulation process.
Gelling agents
BTC’s Alcomer® gelling agents in general are mostly applied in two ways: Ensuring that proppants are placed correctly in hydraulic fracturing and, when applied in combination with acids, to ensure a good matrix acidizing frac job.
Friction reducers
A much more efficient pumping during hydraulic fracturing is usually achieved by applying our Alcomer® types.
Water control polymers
Our fluid-loss control polymers Alcomer® reduce water loss from stimulation fluids to the formation.
Foaming agents
Stimulation techniques like gas-lift are made possible with our foaming agents Basoclean® and Basosol®.
Corrosion inhibitors
Effectively protecting metal equipment under these drastic acidic conditions may pose difficulties. Our special Basocorr® corrosion inhibitors can be used in matrix acidizing to provide the necessary protection.
Biocides
BTC’s biocides Protectol® and Myacide® are used to control the bacteria that become a factor as soon as fracturing fluids are pumped into the formation.
The BTC portfolio is diversified with Basorol® demulsifiers, additives like Baso MSA® acids and Basosol® clean-up agents, and Basosolve® scale control and scale dissolvers. Unwanted fluid production can be mitigated by the use of our Alcomer® conformance control polymers.

Applications

BTC’s stimulation additives cover the complete spectrum of applications requested by the oilfield industry for stimulation.
