water shutoff

Polymer Technologies has performed more than 5000 gel treatments since 1989.

Polymer Technologies designs target influx of water production, overriding the target production interval through coning or channeling due to vugs, natural fractures, or permeability contrast.

How it works?

Polyacrylamide and x-linker injected into the reservoir under frac gradient targeting water-producing zones. The chemistry is hydrophilic and, therefore bonds to the water-saturated portion of the reservoir.

Gel Forms under temperature and pressure variables blocking water and modifying drainage patterns to the wellbore in favor of increased oil production.


Typical results offer a 90% reduction in water and a 50% or more increase in oil production after treatment. Additional benefits and economic advantages can be realized through reduced expenses related to high water production volumes such as electricity and chemical costs.


Casing leaks

Polymer Technologies has performed more than 150 casing leak treatments since 1989.

How it works?

Low MW polymers are advantageous in treating tight or pinhole casing leaks where cement cannot penetrate or hold. After successfully penetrating the offending area, the polymer will set as a ringing gel.


There is no need for permanent mechanical “solutions” (such as liners) that restrict flow with this treatment. Additional benefits include no need for drill out, making the job considerably more cost-effective. 

conformance control & profile modification

Design and implementation target inefficient flood patterns to improve oil production by redirecting injection fluid to tighter, unswept portion of the reservoir.

How it works?

Polymer Technologies profile modification design and implementation treatments target inefficient flood patterns to improve oil production by redirecting injection fluid to tighter, unswept portions of the reservoir.


Polymer Technologies conformance treatments address high-permeability streaks known as thief zones by blocking these areas deep into the reservoir, thus forcing the injection fluid around the gel block into tighter, more oil-saturated rock. The result is the mobilization of bypassed oil to the offset production wells, resulting in significantly increased reserve recovery.
