Vice President Tom Sherwin Tapped as Expert in Oil Review Middle East

Well Flow pushes for stronger hold in Middle East with tech-driven solutions

WELL FLOW INTERNATIONAL, an independent provider of technology-enabled stimulation chemicals, wellbore cleanup chemicals and associated downhole tools, showcased its products at the Kuwait Oil & Gas Show (KOGS) 2015 in October.

“Well Flow provides a wide range of stimulation chemicals, which focus on scale removal rather than reservoir stimulation in oil and gas wells,” said Tom Sherwin, vice president and group commercial director.

Scale deposits, like barium sulphate, can build up inside the wellbore after drilling. The hydrochloric acid-based cleanup solutions offered by most companies are not completely effective in removing scale.

“Our solutions mitigate wellbore damage in all types of formations and reservoir environments. By combining Well Flow’s chemicals and tools, resource holders can improve recovery and injectivity rates, accelerate production, and maximise existing production or disposal infrastructure,” Sherwin asserted.

At ADIPEC, Well Flow will launch its newest, state-of-the-art stimulation chemical, HDC®-3. “It is the most powerful barite-dissolving chemical we’ve ever seen,” said Sherwin, adding, “And this solution is a game-changer. It is effective in downhole temperatures greater than 200ºC/400ºF, can dissolve 300 gm/liter or effective wellbore cleanout appropriate in nearly every major producing region.

KOGS was a huge support in promoting engineered chemistry technologies in scale remediation to the Kuwaiti market, Sherwin noted. “Kuwait is a major oil producer and we understand there is a huge market for specialized, technology-driven chemical and mechanical solutions for oil and gas industry leaders worldwide.”

Focussing on ADIPEC 2015, Sherwin reiterated that Well Flow looks to engage with as many customers as possible at the international event, as well as increase brand and product awareness. “There is an opportunity to expand operations into the UAE, Kuwait, Oman and Iraq, and Well Flow will also be exhibiting at trade shows in those areas,” said Sherwin. 

Outside of Well Flow’s long-time partnership with Saudi Aramco and IOCs such as BP, Halliburton and Shell, the company is active in pilot projects specifically focused on analytics-oriented solutions. “ADIPEC is an international gathering of the strongest, smartest, most strategic organizations in the world, and the Well Flow team looks forward to promoting new advancements in this ever-changing industry,” Sherwin remarked.
