Frequently Asked Questions

How is DiverterPlus used?

New Wells
DiverterPlus is a temporary diverting material used to divert fracturing treatments within the well. During placement, DiverterPlus is a solid biopolymer material capable of bridging across perforation tunnels and fractures near the wellbore. The perforations taking the most fluid will be temporarily sealed off, allowing treatment of perforations that would otherwise be understimulated. In open hole applications, existing fractures will be sealed off, allowing new fractures to be initiated elsewhere along the interval. With time and temperature, in the presence of water, the DiverterPlus hydrolyzes to a clear nontoxic liquid. By offering a unique and customizable particle size distribution, DiverterPlus can provide an effective diversion material for many applications.

Refracs
DiverterPlus helps increase production by increasing the stimulated reservoir volume in existing wells. DiverterPlus products are a temporary diverting material used to divert fracturing treatments within the well. During placement, DiverterPlus is a solid biopolymer material capable of bridging across perforation tunnels and fractures both near the wellbore as well as farther into formation. With proper product selection and deployment technique, altered stress refracturing can be achieved, creating conductivity to previously inaccessible portions of the reservoir. With time and temperature, in the presence of water, DiverterPlus hydrolyzes to a clear nontoxic liquid. Contact a diverter specialist today to discuss the perfect blend for your needs at info@diverterplus.com.

Acidizing/Chemical Treatments
Acid and chemical treatments will generally follow the path of least resistance, in many cases leaving much of the formation unstimulated or unrepaired. In order to make such treatments more effective, they must be evenly distributed across the perforated interval. DiverterPlus is an effective way to enable fluids to reach the entire pay interval, allowing your well to produce at its full potential.

Well Clean Outs
This cleanout technique has been successfully used after drilling out plugs to remove shavings, to circulate proppant out that has been deposited in the wellbore, and to remove other debris that may congest the wellbore. This cost effective clean out method utilizes custom products to establish circulation to allow the clean out of debris in underpressured reservoirs.

Custom Applications

How does DiverterPlus work?

How does product degradation occur?
DiverterPlus hydrolyses with time and temperature. The time it will take to completely hydrolyze will vary depending on downhole conditions. Hydrolysis charts for general scenarios are available by request. For more detailed information contact your diverter specialist for more details.

How long does the product last downhole?
Results will vary depending on which DiverterPlus series is used along with the downhole conditions. Contributing factors include time, temperature, pH, flow rate, etc. Contact your DiverterPlus diverter specialist today to find out which product is the best fit for your needs.

What is the environmental impact of the products?
DiverterPlus is non-toxic and environmentally friendly.

How is a DiverterPlus job designed?

How do I know what product to run?
DiverterPlus’ personnel have extensive experience running our products in a wide variety of applications. We are here to assist operators and service companies to ensure the correct products are deployed properly to achieve the desired results.

How do I know the product will clean up effectively?
DiverterPlus continues to do extensive testing ensuring reliable performance for all of our products. If hydrolysis is a concern, DiverterPlus is happy to test our products under any unique conditions you may request.

Will I contaminate my formation with polymer?
DiverterPlus’ personnel specialize in selecting/designing the right products for your needs. By choosing the right particle size for your application and making the product out of the proper material for your downhole conditions, contamination is minimized or eliminated. What little polymer does make it into formation or the proppant pack will hydrolyze quickly and be removed from the well.
