The Problem


The Production Challenge:


Steep production decline curves mean there is intense pressure to keep replacing the production lost year over year.


Operators are looking for ways to get more oil out of existing wells without expensive refracturing or other intervention technologies.


The Solution

Hydrocarbon Recovery Technology (HRT)


nanoActiv® HRT penetrates the natural fracture network on a nanoscopic scale.

nanoActiv® HRT utilizes nano-sized particles in a colloidal dispersion. These particles produce a Brownian-motion, diffusion-driven mechanism known as disjoining pressure to produce long efficacy in the recovery of hydrocarbons in conventional and unconventional reservoirs.


nanoActiv® HRT moves throughout the fracture network releasing hydrocarbons as it goes deeper and farther than any product on the market today.


Small is BIG!

nanoActiv® HRT particles are so small they reach into the fracture network where no proppant has ever been able to go.


How does it work?

nanoActiv® HRT Wedge Effect Mechanism: Diffusion-Driven Disjoining Pressure


nanoActiv® HRT solutions behave as a wedge film driven by Brownian motion and diffusion defined as disjoining pressure­—greatly facilitating and accelerating the mobility of gas, oil and water, or mixtures thereof within porous media, and/or natural or induced fracture networks.


How does it work?



Numerous factors affect the performance of an oil well—the geology, the number and size of treatment stages, the choice of additives, etc. nanoActiv® HRT treated wells have shown meaningful performance improvement versus comparative wells from the same operators. While no single technology or treatment can account for the entire performance of an oil well, the effects of nanoActiv® HRT are significant and compelling.
