BWA Water Additives introduces new biocide chemistry for fracturing
BWA's products for the oil and gas industry reduce total operating costs in the harshest environments with safe to handle, highly compatible, effective chemical solutions for water treatment.
Canada is the fifth largest producer of oil and gas globally and the industry is a key value driver supporting the Canadian economy. The focus on innovation as an enabler to developing these resources more efficiently, is re-shaping the oil and gas industry and bringing large scale investments and new solutions to market.
Bellacide 350 has been designed and approved for use in fracturing fluids and enhanced oil recovery water injection applications. It gives long-lasting, fast-acting efficacy against SRBs, APBs and Biofilm. It is compatible with other fracturing chemicals and has a synergistic effect when used with chlorine and chlorine dioxide. At in-use and in-fracturing formulations, it is a non-skin sensitizer and safer to handle than many other biocides.
Joe Donahue, Commercial Director, Americas, Oil & Gas said "BWA is excited to bring this new biocide chemistry to the Canadian oil and gas market. The introduction of Bellacide 350 offers a proven solution for customers in fracturing applications and provides access to technology that is successfully and widely used in the US. The arrival of Bellacide® 350 is well timed to coincide with the increase in frac activity and the focus on more cost-effective solutions."

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees.

Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
