BASF Launches Product Range Aspiro For Enhanced Oil Recovery At SPE 2014 In Tulsa/Oklahoma, US

At the SPE Improved Oil Recovery Symposium on April 12. – 14. 2014 in Tulsa/Oklahoma, US, BASF will present Aspiro for Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) to an international audience for the first time. With the Aspiro product range customers can get combined expertise from one source.

The Aspiro P range consists of water soluble polymers based on polyacrylamide (PAM) technology. Standard anionic PAMs are suitable for mild field conditions, while developmental associative thickening polymers enable a high mobility control at low dosage in demanding fields.

The Aspiro S product portfolio comprises a broad range of surfactants, co-surfactants and solvents.

With laboratories in Singapore, Ludwigshafen/Germany and Houston/US, BASF can help oil companies tailor chemical solutions for specific field conditions.

“The market for Enhanced Oil Recovery is growing and BASF will be an integral part of this growth story. The introduction of the Aspiro product range is an important milestone for positioning BASF as a leading provider of innovative chemical solutions for EOR”, said Thilo Birkenheier, responsible for EOR business development in BASF’s Global Business Unit Water, Oilfield and Mining Solutions. “With our innovative products we can help the oil industry to meet future challenges globally. “

An international team will be present at the booth to advise customers and inform about the Aspiro product range.
