Produced for the first time in Russia, Gazprom neft synthesizes 11 cutting-edge enhanced oil recovery surfactant agents

Gazprom Neft with partners (Salym Petroleum Development (SPD), Tyumen State University and Norkem) is implementing a programme on the domestic production of surfactant agents for use in surfactant-polymer (SP) flooding, resulting in 11 new surfactant agents capable of replacing international competitive products being synthesized in Russia for the first time. Under testing, the cost of domestic synthesized products is, already, significantly lower than imported alternatives.
