Oilfield Brine Additives: Nonemulsifiers | Schlumberger

Nonemulsifiers

Additives to control emulsion formation in brines

Control emulsion formation in brines and reservoir drill-in fluids

M-I SWACO provides uniquely engineered nonemulsifiers, which are used to prevent the formation of a stable emulsion between clear-brine completion fluids and reservoir crude oil.

Our nonemulsifier line includes concentrated blends of surfactants and solvents that facilitate full reclamation of the completion brine.

Nonemulsifier

SAFE-BREAK Prime

The SAFE-BREAK Prime universal nonemulsifier is a specialty solvent and surfactant blend that prevents a stable emulsion forming between clear-brine completion fluids and reservoir crude oil.

SAFE-BREAK CBF PLUS

Prevent a stable emulsion between clear-brine completion fluids and reservoir crude oil with the SAFE-BREAK CBF PLUS advanced emulsifier—a specialty solvent and surfactant blend. 

SAFE-BREAK 611

SAFE-BREAK 611 emulsifier is a concentrated blend of surfactants and solvents designed to prevent emulsions or improve compatibility caused by the interaction of highly asphaltic crude oils and seawater, low-density completion brines, and acidizing treatments.
