Polyacrylamide is a versatile chemical treatment agent in oilfield.
In oil extraction it could be used as a flooding agent, water
shutoff regulator, drilling fluid regulator, fracturing fluid
additives, especially in cementing, completion and workover. The
oil industry is the largest area of polyacrylamide applications.
Polyacrylamide (PAM) is not only a high-performance flocculants,
but also because of the high viscosity of aqueous solution, but
also a very good thickener. Due to its thickening, flocculation and
regulation of rheological properties it can be used as a drilling
fluid, fracturing fluid, and polymer flooding in the exploitation
of oil extraction.
The key to the application is the combination of conditions and
requirements, Reasonable design and selection of its composition
structure, such as molecular morphology, molecular weight, ion
degree and so on.
