Nano-spheres are very small particles of proprietary composition that are used to enhance the recovery of oil within a wide range of reservoir conditions. This is accomplished by adjusting the permeability of the reservoir.

Nano-spheres are much less susceptible to geological conditions when compared to other chemical technologies. Nano-spheres can be used in reservoirs with very high temperatures (upto~130C) and high salinities (up to ~300,000mg/L). Nano-spheres are designed to be used in heterogeneous reservoirs where permeabilities are very low (0.1mD).
