The Chemical EOR Alliance (an alliance between Rhodia, Beicip-Franlab and IFPEN) has announced a strategic collaboration with Champion Technologies, one of the world’s largest oil and gas specialty chemical companies. The companies will work together to promote and deliver integrated solutions to the oil industry for chemical enhanced oil recovery (reservoir engineering, chemical formulation, laboratory experiments, pilot design, and implementation) in the USA and Canada. Through this collaboration, the Chemical EOR Alliance, which already offers integrated EOR solutions in most parts of the world, will benefit from Champion Technologies’ vast North-American footprint and field presence, and will strengthen its water and produced fluids treatment capabilities. Champion Technologies’ customers in the fast-growing North American EOR market will immediately gain access to the full suite of services provided by the Alliance.

“We are delighted to be involved with Champion Technologies in the development of integrated chemical EOR solutions”, said Jean Burrus, CEO of Beicip Franlab, Pascal Barthelemy, Executive Vice-President of IFPEN and Emmanuel Butstraen, President of Rhodia Novecare in a common statement. “Joining forces with Champion Technologies will immediately offer new opportunities to respond to the demand of North American oil operators, who are constantly seeking advanced solutions for improving reserves and production in oil fields under development.”

“This strategic collaboration is a key step in the development of needed, integrated chemical solutions for enhanced oil recovery,” said Tom Amonett, President and CEO of Champion Technologies. “This move demonstrates Champion Technologies is committed to finding better solutions for our oil and gas customers by working with complementary product and service providers to provide unique value. We look forward to the development of the relationship with such renowned international organizations.”
