Breaking the Barrier - Session 2

July 27, 2021
01:30 PM - 02:30 PM SGT - Singapore Time
1 hour
Novel Chemistries and Optimization – Lowering Costs and Maximizing Hydrocarbon Production in Asia Pacific
No Charge

Description: In this session, ChampionX experts will discuss the breakthrough impact of cEOR and the typical process problems which may occur. We will also cover the adverse impacts on incumbent production chemical applications and how these can be addressed proactively via the use of specially developed chemistry, designed to tackle some of the unique challenges associated with back-produced chemical EOR.

Presenters Mark Zijlstra, Robin Shields, and Ben Lownie will share case histories from successful applications in treating issues caused by polymer flooding and other cEOR techniques.

Presenter: Mark Zijlstra, EOR Manager EMENA

About Mark: Mark leads ChampionX’s Enhanced Oil Recovery team for Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. He’s previously held technical, sales, and district management positions at ChampionX. Mark holds master’s degrees in both Chemical Engineering and Business. He is based in the Netherlands.
