Messer will highlight its RECHARGE HNP™, or “Huff ‘n Puff” technology, at the Unconventional Resources Technology Conference 2019 (URTeC) between 22nd-24th July (2019) in Denver.

Ideal for re-stimulating depleted oil and gas wells, the RECHARGE HNP treatment combines the proven enhanced recovery properties of carbon dioxide (CO2) or nitrogen (N2) with the latest advanced nanoparticle technology from Nissan Chemical.

The technology combines Nissan Chemical nanoActiv® HRT (Hydrocarbon Recovery Technology) with injections of Messer COor Nto boost downhole oil and gas well performance.

Following treatment of depleted wells with RECHARGE HNP, production improvements in barrel-of-oil equivalents after 180 days were as high as 564%.

“Working with Messer, we are helping well operators resolve hidden production issues to achieve significantly higher returns and faster paybacks,” said William L. Smith, President of Nissan Chemical America Corporation in Houston.

“One of the key features of RECHARGE HNP is the simplicity in executing the treatment,” said Chris Ebeling, Messer’s Executive Vice-President of Sales and Marketing, North America.

“Operators are very pleased with how quickly and cost-effectively they can re-energise a well. We believe this technology will have an important economic impact for oil and gas producers.”

Messer will be at booth #544 at URTeC 2019.
