Hotsoss treatments are a cost-effective and efficient solution for maintaining oil wells. Compared to conventional treatments (hot oiling, xylene) HotSoss increases the production rates and longevity, reduces maintenance costs, and improves overall well performance.
Traditional well treatments, such as hot oil and xylene circulation jobs are costly and result in short-lived production increases. On average, this customer was treating wells with xylene every 177 days. Even with treatment, well pumps remained coated with wax and asphaltene deposits reducing equipment life and increasing maintenance costs.
Our proprietary three-component HotSoss solution was implemented in 2019. Over three years, this customer completed 59 HotSoss treatments on multiple well sites. To compare results, 587 Xylene treatments were completed over the same period.
50% Decrease in Cost Compared to Xylene
Treatment of both the lateral and tubing with HotSoss resulted in significant cost savings.
20% Longer Run-Time, Up to 40% Production Increase
Wells with HotSoss averaged treatment every 213 days compared to 177 for Xylene. This resulted sustained periods with higher production rates. Production in one well increased 6-12 bbl (1-2 m3/day).
Reduced Well Maintenance and Costs
After treatment, pumps and well components no longer experienced severe build up of wax and asphaltene reducing wear, maintenance and replacement costs.
