General information:

HCR-2000 is part of the ‘Environmentally Responsible’ HCl acid replacement product line that has comparable performance to Hydrochloric acid, without the extremely hazardous Health-Safety-Environmental exposure and corrosive properties. HCR-2000 can be used in any situation where HCL normally is used but without risk and pre cautions, both personal and equipment wise.

HCR-2000 Modified Acid (North sea approved / WGK-1) is a yellow classified, safer alternative to 15% Hydrochloric acid for the North Sea. HCR-2000N can be used in the following applications at temperatures up to 900 C.

  • Spearhead acid
  • Fracturing / Matrix
  • Production
  • Injection wells
  • Scale treatment

HCR-2000 is very compatible with formation oils and fluids. Requiring less additives than typical 15% HCl blends. HCR-2000 is supplied as a concentrate and is typically diluted to a 20% to 90% Concentration at the well site (platform) with sea, produced or fresh water.
