Inorganic salts as raw materials for specialty chemicals for oil and gas production

The development of hydraulic fracturing has opened the door to new ways of extracting oil and gas and meet energy needs in several regions around the world. A key factor for the implementation of this technology has been the availability of numerous chemicals capable of providing the performance needed for this very demanding application. Several of BASF's inorganic salts have been supporting the technical advances of this industry.

Examples of applications include:

Ammonium Chloride

  • Salt inhibitor
  • Synthesis of specialty chemicals for hydraulic fracturing

Sodium Nitrite and Sodium Nitrate

  • Production of anti-corrosion agents
