Specialty Oil and Gas Chemicals

Brainerd Chemical provides industry leading chemicals to the Oil and Gas industry. One of those is Endimal™ PT which is a lower pH, faster-reacting product for treating sulfides in the aqueous phase. It is a DOT nonhazardous solution that has similar oxidative properties to sodium chlorite.


  • Faster removal of H₂S from produced water
  • Competitive cost position vs. likely alternatives due to selectivity of the chemistry
  • Ease of application due to safety of chemistry
  • DOT nonhazardous for transportation purposes


  • Increased productivity vs. NIK competition
  • Reduced cost of application by as much as 65% when compared to typical chemistries
  • No specialized equipment, fewer safety hazards, peace of mind for operators and site foreman
  • More shipping options when sending to remote locations (cost, availability)

Brainerd supplies Peracetic Acid (PAA) to the Oil and Gas industries as well. The need for water treatment and reuse has become critical to oil and gas operations across the United States. In recent years, oil and gas producers have utilized drilling and completion techniques which demand much greater water requirements than traditional practices. This increase in water usage has challenged companies to design innovative treatment methods that allow them to more efficiently utilize their water resources. Peracetic Acid (PAA) has become the preferred chemical treatment solution due to its environmentally friendly profile and effectiveness across a broad range of applications.

PAA is a multifaceted water management tool that is being incorporated into chemical treatment programs to prevent corrosion issues resulting from bacterial contamination. PAA is also being supplied as an integral part of produced water recycling programs in fields experiencing H₂S souring and Iron buildup. PAA has shown to effectively remove oil-wet FeS emulsions and scale from production equipment and well structures. Brainerd Chemical’s customizable Terrastat has many applications that will benefit your company today.

  • Stronger oxidation potential than chlorine dioxide and sodium hypochlorite
  • Rapid reaction time
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Reduces corrosion potential due resulting from microbial contamination
  • PAA will resolve and prevent iron sulfide emulsions and oilfield equipment scale
  • Oxidizes hydrogen sulfide by breaking it down to elemental sulfur, providing odor control and a safer working environment
  • Clarification of frac water to help other chemistries perform more efficiently and effectively
  • PAA is effective in low, medium, and high brine applications
  • Greater light and temperature stability than that of sodium hypochlorite (bleach)
  • Does not react with hydrocarbons
  • Longer shelf life vs. sodium hypochlorite
  • pH, Hardness, and organic matter have little to no effect on the activity of PAA
  • Safe to discharge to land or surface irrigation
  • Multiple analysis/monitoring options available
  • Compatible with common corrosion and scale inhibitors
