Oil & Gas

WACKER’s comprehensive portfolio of versatile silicone-based products for the oil and gas processing industry spans its many phases, from exploration and drilling to refining. With our excellent service, product customization and worldwide hands-on technical support, we offer solutions that meet all of your application needs.

WACKER’s innovative additive line is engineered to meet the performance needs of downhole cement, both during installation and thereafter. Our silicone-based materials are ideal for defoaming cementitious materials and enhance the overall physical performance of the cement. This translates into higher-integrity cement, less failure potential and longer term durability. During mixing of the cement slurry, the presence of essential additives, such as fluid loss additives, and anti-settling agents can result in the generation of foam and in air entrapment, leading to pump cavitation, density issues, poor mixing and integrity problems. WACKER’s SILFOAM® defoamers provide effective solutions, performing with improved efficiency under severe environmental conditions. SILFOAM® defoamers offer superior performance as knock-down agents and in long-term antifoaming. WACKER’s wide range of products contribute to an improved overall performance of the cement, by improving its hydrophobicity and bulk physical properties.

Benefits:

  • Economical use
  • Easy to process
  • Versatile
  • Tailored to customer needs
  • Ready-to-use

Applications:

  • Defoaming processes during cementing

WACKER products comply with the petroleum industry's requirements for reliable, high-quality products and economic production methods. Our products include those in the innovative and environmentally friendly silicone-based SILFOAM® product line. SILFOAM® controls and regulates foam formation, ensuring the reliable and effective production and processing of oil and gas. The demulsifiers and surfactants of the WACKER® SG series were developed for wells with high-performance demands that currently cannot be met by standard products. The WACKER® SG series can be used alone (100 percent active) or for boosting processes subject to harsher conditions, and at improved efficiencies.
