Oilfield chemicals, viscosity modifiers, inhibitors, polymers and surfactants for the upstream industry are of high interest especially with challenging environments and technology needs of unconventional oil and gas resource projects. Cost-effectiveness is a must. Hydraulic fracturing with the use of smart fluids and proppants is important for high production yield in onshore shale oil & gas projects. Corrosion and scaling inhibitor action can be complicated by different non-synergistic actions of other additives. Other challenges in flow assurance include asphaltene, paraffin, and gas hydrate control. New polymer thermoset and elastomer compositions and methods enable preservation of assets, and long-term performance and durability under HPHT conditions. The use of nanotechnology is becoming more of a commercial possibility. This knowledge-builder workshop is designed for chemists, R&D practitioners, engineering services, technical managers, chemical suppliers, oil-field services, and analytical services.
