Releasing Science with Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery
Developed by DuPont and backed by successful lab and field trials, MATRx™ offers a low-risk, low-capital solution for enhanced oil recovery.
MATRx™ EOR Technologies by DuPont provide a natural solution for increased oil recovery from waterflooded reservoirs. Using unique microbes and nutrients customized for each oil reservoir, MATRx™ achieves maximum extraction of trapped reserves. MATRx™ EOR Technologies increase the recovery of oil in water-flooded reservoirs using a distinctive process, in which the indigenous microbe population is exploited to maximize oil recovery.
MATRx™ IS THE NEXT GENERATION MEOR TECHNOLOGY.
MATRx™ identifies naturally-occurring microbes in each reservoir that can facilitate bioplugging and reduce residual oil saturation. The reservoir can then be inoculated with the favored microbes. DuPont research has shown inoculation to be a critical step necessary to the overall success of MEOR technologies.
WHY MATRx™ EOR TECHNOLOGIES BY DUPONT?
DuPont has been bringing world-class science and engineering to the global marketplace in the form of innovative products, materials, and services since 1802. MATRx™ EOR Technologies draw upon DuPont expertise in the chemical and biological sciences, and further expand our offerings to the oil and gas industry. After nearly a decade in development, and now commercialized with proven lab and field results, DuPont is proud to offer a microbial enhanced oil recovery technology that can help increase oil production safely and reliably with low capital investment, backed by our longstanding commitment to quality.
