Enzymes for Extraction in Oil Fields and Crude Oil Spill Remediation

Enzymes for Extraction in Oil Fields and Crude Oil Spill Remediation

Deoiled cakes of all seed oil and Xanthum gum filter cakes contain lot of Starch molecules. These can be easily degraded by Amylases at high temperatures. Cellulases and Mannanases are also applied to remove Cellulose and Mannan from the deoiled seed filter cakes.

Interestingly, Filter cake removal is an important step concerning both production and injection in Petroleum wells, mainly concerning horizontal completion. The drilling fluids are typically comprised of Starch, the most important component of the filter cake. A common approach to remove this filter cake is the use of Acid solutions. However, these are non-specific reactants. An alternative is the use of Enzymatic preparations, like Amylases, that can hydrolyse starch.

Frequently, Crude Oil spill occurs in Sea and it affects the ecosystem of the ocean flora and fauna. ECOZYME – CRUDE SPILL is a novel product which contains multiple Enzymes mixture and consortium of hydrocarbon degrading Microbes.

Once ECOZYME - CRUDE SPILL has been applied to the oil, even if the oil disperses, sinks or fragments, it will not be able to evade decomposition, until every last drop of oil has been totally broken down. ECOZYME - CRUDE SPILL will also break down the adhesive properties of the hydrocarbons, preventing the oils from attaching to animals, vegetation, rocks or earth.
