Garth Sales - Nexen:
We started using Buckman chemicals and dealing with Rocanda in 1998. We first tried the TS-1 product for treating slop oil and found it very effective and during this time Julian brought up the facts on how it would perform in a reservoir as a stimulation tool. Over the next couple of years we used the product on a number of wells and found that we could hold back water production and enhance oil production. We also started using a product SPI 2400 as a steam additive to break down emulsion blocks in the reservoir and inhale the movement of oil and we have been very pleased with the results. Rocanda has been a very willing partner in taking theory to the lab and developing a product when asked.
