Primary surfactant, wetting agent for FAZEPRO RDF systems
FAZE‐MUL surfactant is the primary emulsifier and wetting agent for the FAZEPRO system. FAZE‐MUL surfactant provides excellent emulsion stability and preferential wetting of solids by the continuous, non‐aqueous phase. It has the unique ability to reverse to an oil/synthetic‐in‐water emulsion, for the best possible completion cleanup.
FAZE‐MUL surfactant will form the basic brine‐in‐oil/synthetic emulsion required for the FAZEPRO system. Initial system formulations require 8 to 12 lb/bbl (22.8 to 34.2 kg/m3), depending on the properties desired and other components in the system. Daily treatments with FAZE‐MUL surfactant will enhance the emulsion characteristics of these systems. Daily treatments are usually in the 0.05 to 0.5‐lb/bbl (0.14 to 1.4‐kg/m3) range. FAZE‐MUL surfactant is used to maintain reversibility and increase viscosity. FAZE‐MUL surfactant is activated by lime and works better at lower levels (<4 lb/bbl or <11.46 kg/m3) of excess lime.
