Enhanced Oil Recovery

We design, develop and provide chemically enhanced oil recovery technologies that increase the effectiveness of oil and gas field waterflooding and improve recovery.  In 2008, Nalco and Stepan formed a joint venture to globally market custom-engineered chemical solutions for increased production of crude oil and gas from existing fields. The joint venture centered on the technology and experience of TIORCO which was acquired by Nalco in 2008.

TIORCO processes have been successfully applied in oil and gas producing formations worldwide, from North and South America to Russia, China and Asia. The result has been the production of more than 100 million barrels of incremental oil from North American reservoirs alone.

Choosing the right solutions for individual reservoirs and applying it at the right time is extremely important in maximizing oil recovery. TIORCO’s project engineers and field technicians have extensive experience in improved oil recovery technologies gained from working with diverse reservoirs worldwide. This experience is supported by reservoir engineering capabilities, reservoir modeling and EOR design, in-house laboratory services and knowledgeable on-site field crews.
