VES-1000 is a polymer free, surfactant-based acid gellant designed for use in self-diverting acidizing applications in oil and gas wells.

VES-1000 leads to minimal viscosity change when added to the initial acid and provides low viscosity while being pumped resulting in reduced friction pressure.

VES-1000 is a visco-elastic self-diverting surfactant-gelled hydrochloric acid (HCl) system for matrix and fracture acidizing treatments in carbonate formations. Hydrofluoric (HF) acid-based VES-1000 acid systems may also be designed for sandstone acidizing diversion and placement applications.
