White Paper: RECHARGE HNP—Enhancing Hydrocarbon Recovery With a Next Generation Huff ’n’ Puff Treatment That Combines Gas and Nanoparticles

As oil and gas wells age, their production declines due to a number of factors—well infrastructure, mechanical failures, and various types of formation damage which accelerate the decline. Huff ’n’ Puff (HNP) treatments with carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrogen (N2) have effectively stimulated well production.

Messer and Nissan Chemical recently introduced a new Huff ’n’ Puff process that combines CO2 or N2 gas and nanoparticles for synergistic multi-spectrum recovery enhancement from aging, depleted wells. The RECHARGE HNP™ technology solves multiple production issues in conventional and unconventional wells, in any type of rock formation.

This informative 12-page white paper details the following:

  • The production challenge

  • How CO2 or N2 HNP treatments enhance recovery

  • The role of nanoparticles in improving production

  • Combining gas and nanoparticles for synergistic recovery enhancement

  • The results of RECHARGE HNP treatments with N2 in the Austin Chalk and Buda formations: increases in cumulative production ranging from 12% to 564%

  • The basics of treatment: the three-phase process plus well-screening criteria
