BASF - The Chemical Company
Together with BASF, Wintershall is developing an organic fungus which can significantly improve the recovery rate from certain reservoirs. The fungus develops a biopolymer naturally; an organically produced thickening agent. The substance thickens the water which is injected into the deposit to enhance production. Since the water then no longer flows past the valuable raw material so easily, more oil is forced out of the deposit and the production rate rises.
