ENORDET surfactants are used as part of enhanced oil recovery technologies to recover more oil from existing reservoirs.
Higher olefins and derivatives
The Shell Chemicals range of alpha olefins, internal olefins and detergent alcohols and ethoxylates are key raw materials for producing everything from detergents, cleaning products and sun creams to plastics, lubricants and drilling fluids.
Inside Higher olefins and derivatives
Shell chemicals companies produce a range of LINEVOL plasticiser alcohols at manufacturing locations in the USA and UK using proprietary technology. They are used as intermediates to produce high quality plasticisers.
NEODENE linear alpha and internal olefins are essential ingredients in materials such as polyethylene, lubricants, drilling muds and detergents.
NEODOL alcohols and ethoxylates are used in surfactants found in many consumer detergent, cleaning and personal care products.
NEODOL LM ethoxylates are derived from oleochemical alcohols and are used broadly in household and personal care applications.
NEOFLO fluids act as base stocks in the synthetic drilling fluids used in oil and gas exploration and production drilling operations.
