Chemical Enhanced Oil Recovery

Chemical Enhanced Oil Recovery


Primary and secondary production methods can leave up to 70-80% of the original oil in the reservoir in place. Techniques to improve oil recovery (IOR) or enhance oil recovery (EOR) have been developed over the years to increase production and reservoir life.

With an extensive background and experience in polymer chemistry and surfactants for use in oil production, Dow is at the forefront of the Chemical Enhanced Oil Recovery (CEOR) evolution. We offer a broad portfolio of solvents, surfactants, chelants, biocides and water treatment products, along with the expertise to fine-tune these solutions to individual field conditions to help producers get the most out of their assets.
