Avoid fouling, enable more open formations and enhance oil recovery by removing contaminants. 3M Purification keeps a wide range of fluids clean, including:
3M Purification filters for oil and gas help get new wells up and running faster and more economically, and help reduce the cost of reworking on older wells. Their high performance and low cost-in-use makes 3M filters the media of choice for a variety of fluids used in completion and enhanced oil recovery operations.

Completion and Workover
3M Purification products are used extensively for filtering a variety of low viscosity fluids, including: cleaning/rinse fluids; completion fluids used to prepare oil and gas wells; and workover fluids used to swab and re-perforate existing wells. These weighted brines are critical for balancing well pressure, and they require high-quality filtration to ensure well completion and safety, and enhance oil recovery.
3M filters help protect against formation damage caused by waterflood impurities. Produced water contains oxides, iron sulfides, asphaltines and other particulates that must be eliminated prior to injection. These contaminants can cause well plugging or even fracture if not filtered out of the injection water before the stream enters the well. 3M filters eliminate more contaminants to help you achieve higher re-injection rates and maintain proper wellhead pressures.
3M filters help remove more contaminants from frac water, acids, surfactant solutions and other fluids used to stimulate formations – helping to prevent capillary blockage and increase recovery. Production filtration is critical to enhanced oil recovery operations, as contaminants can foul equipment and plug formations.
