PM Industrial in its activities is guided by the principles of sustainable development, seeking to strike a balance between environmental sustainability and social and economic development.
Our approach is to consistently reduce the technogenic load on the environment by introducing the best available technologies. Polymer and surfactant-polymer flooding contribute to the implementation of the ESG agenda and are aimed at decarbonization and environmental safety improvement.
- The polymers used and their concentrations are not hazardous to the environment are widely used in medicine, agriculture and drinking water treatment;
- Polymer molecular size prevents bacteria from using it as a nutrient source;
- Emissions of CO 2 into the atmosphere are reduced by reducing the volume of water involved in injection and production;
- Polymer compounds are eventually easily decomposed without releasing CO2;
- Chemical agents are physically and chemically inert to rock and reservoir fluids.
The issue of reducing greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere (decarbonization) becomes especially relevant with an increase in water cut at the fields. Thus, when the water cut of the produced product is more than 90%, the volumes of CO 2 emissions generated as a result of the extraction of 1 barrel of oil are comparable to emissions from the combustion of a barrel of oil.
Polymer and surfactant-polymer flooding can significantly reduce carbon dioxide emissions (in some cases up to 5 times per barrel of oil produced), by decreasing water cut and reducing energy consumption for water circulation at the field, which in addition to environmental also gives an additional economic effect.
