NPD® Solutions features stable nanoparticle dispersions to accelerate recovery of hydrocarbons and stimulation fluids from reservoirs and near-wellbore regions. This high-tech solution replaces traditional surfactant systems, using nanoparticles to create complete water 'wetness' in a formation.
The nanoparticles in NPD Solutions assemble into a wedge film when they encounter a discontinuous phase. This wedge film lifts fluids from the formation's surface, recovering additional fluids more rapidly than previously possible.
