As hydraulic fracturing activity ramps up in colder locations across the United States to meet growing energy demand, harsher temperatures and environmental conditions remain a challenge. Providing the market with a cold-weather solution, Dow Microbial Control, a business unit of DowDuPont Specialty Products, has launched two new products within its AQUCAR Water Treatment Microbiocides portfolio: AQUCAR TN 250 LT Water Treatment Microbiocide and AQUCAR 7140 LT Water Treatment Microbiocide.

Without an effective microbial control program in place, an entire oil and gas operation can be at risk. Utilizing a tailored approach to microbe management can help prevent corrosion and hydrocarbon souring, while maximizing the value of your well. A new video from Dow Microbial Control explains how biocides help protect valuable assets from the harmful effects of bugs often found in the water-saturated environment of hydraulic fracturing.
Dow Microbial Control, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company, has launched the first Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) approved label for biocides for use in offshore oil and gas operations. Dow has updated product labels to reflect to customers which biocides can now be used in offshore operations.
An oilfield water service provider is helping a Colorado oilfield operator cut water sourcing and hauling costs for hydraulic fracturing by integrating self cleaning Tequatic Plus F-75 Filters into a water treatment plant, more than tripling the use of recycled produced water for its customer to nearly 100 percent.
Oil and gas production across North America has been going on for many years, drawing hydrocarbon products from reservoirs large and small. As these reservoirs are worked, their nature changes and it becomes more challenging to maintain production levels.
World Water Week starts this Sunday, August 31st, and will address the theme of "Water and Energy.” This new infographic from Dow Water & Process Solutions explains how advanced water treatment technologies – ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis and ion exchange – help enhance refinery operations and promote wastewater for operational reuse, helping to lessen the strain on freshwater assets.
With increased activity in shale plays comes increased numbers of hydraulic fracturing operations – and increased scrutiny of the environmental aspects of fracking. Water is the key focus of environmental concerns surrounding fracturing, thanks to the large amount of water needed as well as the need to handle flowback and produced water.
Dow Neptune Advanced Subsea Flow Assurance Insulation System wins OTC Spotlight on new technology award
The Dow Neptune Advanced Subsea Flow Assurance Insulation System has been selected as a winner of the 2013 OTC Spotlight on New Technology Award. This annual awards program, sponsored by the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), is designed to highlight new, innovative and proven technologies in the oil and gas sector that have broad market interest and a significant impact on the industry’s future.
The winner of the 2012 World Oil Award for Best Production Technology is a breakthrough in subsea insulation developed by Dow Oil & Gas, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company, in cooperation with multiple organizations, including Trelleborg Offshore, a leading provider of polymer and syntactic foam-based coating solutions for the offshore oil and gas industry. The breakthrough technology, known as the NEPTUNE Advanced Subsea Flow Assurance Insulation System, offers the widest end-to-end use-temperature range of any complete wet insulation system on the market.
