Crude oil production pipeline from shale play restricted to 8,000 bbls/day that decreases steadily. Shutting down monthly to pig out and clean pipeline.
Injected Omni DRA-2008 at a low concentration and steadily increased treat rate over a 3-day period.
Production company saw an increase to record production of 9,700 bbls/day and were able to maintain this rate with no significant decreases for 30 days. They then elected to stop injecting Omni DRA-2008 and saw decreased production back to around 800 bbls/day which declined to 6,600 bbls/day over a one-month period. As a result they began injecting the Omni DRA-2008 again and rate climbed back to around 9,600 bbls/day. This continued for 4 months with steady production and they did not have to shutdown to pig out the line at all during this period.
The production company unfortunately fell on hard times per the oilfield market and shut down operations, but product performed very well for them.
