From 26th to 30th of September 2016 in the city of Yekaterinburg XX Mendeleev Congress on General and Applied Chemistry took place. The Congress is one of the most important international scientific forums in the field of fundamental and applied chemistry and is one of the major events, defining the main directions of the development of chemical science and industry in Russia.
The material presented by the representatives of Polyex was of great interest. The subject of the presentation was the use of the unique properties of viscoelastic surfactant in the oil-and-gas technologies, including the preparing of polymer-free fracturing fluids, acidizing of wells self-diverting acidic compositions, manufacturing of well killing fluids with unique properties. The presentation showed the results of laboratory tests of locally produced viscoelastic surfactants, which prove good prospects in the development of this area.
