Corrosion Detection, Prevention and Mitigation
Battelle is working to expand the understanding of corrosion processes and develop new technologies and materials that resist degradation in even the harshest environments. Learn more.
Battelle has deep experience in evaluating and developing proppant materials for conventional and unconventional applications. We developed and patented a new proppant binder system that can be injected and cured in place in unconsolidated formations. The resin-coated binder system was developed to meet the needs of “Frac and Pack” (FnP) oil & gas operations, especially wells using water injection to boost production.
Our benefits include:
- Detect, repair and prevent costly corrosion-related challenges
- Improve viscosity and fluid dynamics for increase efficiency
- Decrease costs through risk mitigation and operational improvement
