CLEAN WATER IS THE WORLD'S MOST VALUABLE RESOURCE
Water Technology Solutions
Reduce water consumption and optimize production with lifecycle programs from the global leader in oilfield water treatment chemicals. From onshore and offshore to oil sands and utilities, we draw on nearly a century of complementary energy and water expertise to design safe, effective, and affordable water treatment solutions. Because we offer the experience, resources, and technology to optimize your program across both conventional and unconventional operations, we help streamline and simplify your oilfield water management.
Water Treatment Solutions
A reliable steam-injection program requires both water and process knowledge. ChampionX draws on nearly a century of complementary energy and water expertise to design safe, effective, and affordable water treatment solutions for onshore oilfields, so our customers are better equipped to streamline their operations and increase efficiency and production.get in touch
We understand water – and how it interacts with the frac chemicals and reservoir. Our chemical solutions and onsite field services address challenges to conditioning, oil/water separation, produced water, and flowback water. Our custom programs optimize your water reuse, remove the risk of souring, and enhance or extend production from your frac operations.get in touch
From power generation to potable water supplies, count on ChampionX for technologies that help you do more with less by extending the life – and reliability – of your equipment. We provide chemistries and automation to address the stresses in your power generation systems and prevent scaling, corrosion, biofouling, the loss of cooling or heating efficiency, and costly downtime.get in touch
Poor water quality can degrade even high-quality porous formations and lead to increased maintenance costs for an injection well. We apply our deep understanding of water chemistry to design cost-optimized packages for conditioning or cleaning your produced water – allowing for better flow and maximized oil separation, protecting your assets from corrosion and scale, and preventing your formations from plugging and damage.get in touch
Wellbore cleanouts can be costly and are often necessary to recover optimum production during the lifecycle of a well. Over time, debris builds up, leading to flow restriction and reduced production. Mechanical cleaning comes at a significant cost to operators and drilling a new well requires capital. Additionally, providers who offer a chemical solution to clean out the wellbore may lack the expertise to test, design, and deliver a suit of chemistries in a safe and effective manner.
ChampionX provides a comprehensive customized well treatment plan with a unique sequencing of varying chemistries to remove buildup caused by iron sulfide, H2S, mineral scaling, bacteria, paraffin, and/or asphaltene followed by weekly monitoring and evaluation against success criteria. The RenewIQ Wellbore Cleanout program combined with our experience has been repeatedly proven to increase well production at a higher return on investment than drilling a new well or other cleanout methods.
Sea Water Treatment
Count on ChampionX for comprehensive water treatment programs that help you meet production demands, enhance system performance, and reduce energy and water costs. We combine pre-treatment processes and chemistries with the antiscalants, cleaners, and biocides needed to prepare seawater for process and utilities use. We also work with you to engineer maintenance and cleaning programs that extend membrane life, minimizing downtime and reducing your total cost of operations.get in touch
Produced Water Treatment
Offshore water treatment challenges can disrupt operations and regulatory compliance. ChampionX has partnered with Baleen Process Solutions to provide comprehensive treatment programs that transform challenging water into clean, compliant water. Our custom chemistries, configurations, plug-and-play equipment, and specialized on-site service teams improve water quality and maximize uptime. Applications include: flowback and produced water for subsea tiebacks, flowback water for completions and acid stimulations, produced water, FPSO slop water, and tertiary water treatment.get in touch
SAGD & Thermal
Meet KPIs while minimizing secondary costs such as produced water cooler fouling and disposal of unrecyclable waste streams. Our Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) programs incorporate customized emulsion breakers that offer rapid, sharp separation and give on-spec oil with virtually no interface issues or waste. We address the complexities of your Central Processing Facility with mechanical, operational, and chemical approaches that address fouling, scaling, corrosion, oil/water separation and microbiological concerns. Our work with thousands of boiler plants over more than 80 years has provided us with the knowledge and experience to push beyond traditional performance boundaries, helping our customers recycle produced water into safe, reliable and cost-effective steam.get in touch
Mining & Extracting
From ore preparation through bitumen extraction, froth treatment, and upgrading and tailings management, our comprehensive portfolio of chemistries, services, and digital solutions serves the entire oil sands mining process. For decades, we have led the industry in bitumen froth treatment through the application of our custom-formulated demulsifiers and leading polymer technologies.get in touch
Maintain your plant’s longevity and optimize its performance with our chemical programs, automation and monitoring. ChampionX is the industry leader in the upgrading process with a long history in both water and oil. We’ve provided asset protection in boilers and cooling towers for decades, and our work in the oil sands began with the first upgrader 50 years ago. Whether distillation, delayed coking or hydrotreating, we have solutions for corrosion, foaming, emulsions, asphaltenes, and paraffins.get in touch

Water Technology Case Studies
Produced water treatment reduces chemical costs, improves savings in SAGD operation
A SAGD producer was experiencing high rates of fouling in their spiral heat exchangers used to recover energy from a produced water stream. Learn how our dedicated researchers identified chemical solutions for the exchangers’ fouling to save the customer $910,000 annually.
Permian Basin wellbore cleanout recovers ESP flow and delivers savings
A 60-year-old sour field in the Permian was producing from approximately 70 wells. The customer had an ESP that was cycling excessively, experiencing recurring shutdowns because of an overloaded motor. See how our custom-designed wellbore cleanout program returned the cycle time of the ESP to the normal rate, saving the customer money.
Dual reverse emulsion breaker program saves SAGD commercial facility $600,000 per year
In order to meet produced water oil-in-water specifications, a customer in a SAGD commercial facility was spending increasing amounts on their water treatment program. See how our proprietary high temperature high pressure testing identified a reverse emulsion breaker program to cut costs.
