Modified Acid

NovaSyn Modified Acid is designed to minimize the hazardous exposure levels, corrosion rates and negative HSE properties of hydrochloric acid (HCl).

The product accomplishes this while maintaining the positive aspects of solubilizing ability and reactivity rates. NovaSyn is a strong acid that, in concentrate, has similar solubilizing abilities as 15% HCl and can be enhanced by adding conventional oilfield chemistry. High spent pH stability and the calcium- and iron-coordinating effects of NovaSyn reduce the precipitation issues prevalent with HCl. This will minimize or eliminate formation damage when using HCl as a spearhead acid and assist with effluent management.

Features & Benefits

  • An aggressive reaction rate (spend nature) versus typical modified or synthetic acid systems for chemical cleaning, spearheads, stimulations, and workovers
  • Adjust concentrations on the fly for zones with tougher breakdowns
  • Minimal reprecipitation of scale at high pH levels
  • Ultra-low, long-term corrosion effects
  • Compatible with typical elastomers used in oil and gas (e.g., Viton, Nitrile and EPDM)
  • High stability in solution
  • Blends available up to 180°C (356°F)


  • Boiler clean outs
  • Chemical cleaning
  • Acid spearhead
  • Stimulation
  • Workover treatments
  • Removal of downhole formation, scale, cement, or mineral deposits
  • Low to high temperature conditions
