Dotz’s FUORENSIC™ & ValiDotz™
Ground-Breaking Tracing and Tagging Solution for Oil Industry Applications

Dotz’s FUORENSIC™ tracers are water soluble, resistant to photo-bleaching and non-toxic.

These unique properties make them ideal for applications hitherto impacted by the potential risk of
harmful chemicals in the Upstream Oil & Gas Exploration & Production market.

Additionally, Dotz’s patented process for introducing and extracting ValiDotz™ as taggants in crude oil and oil-based derivative products makes them ideally suited for security or product integrity devices for use in the Downstream shipping, transportation and points-of-sale.

FUORENSIC™ Advantages Over Fluorescent Organic Dyes & Heavy Metal Quantum Dots
• Tuneable emission spectra (Blue, Cyan, Aqua Green and Red
• Detectable signal brightness even at extremely low-level concentrations.
• Stable in all downhole environments

  • • Photo stability
    • Biological stability
    • Temperature stability
    • Pressure stability

• No naturally occurring chemical presence in formations
• No damage to the reservoir formation (tested & approved by COREX in laboratory conditions that replicate subsurface applications)
• Low cost – cheaper than graphene or carbon-fibre alternatives, and comparable with fluorescent dyes.
• Non-toxic – therefore usable in any concentrations without damage to the environment or
hazard to health

Reservoir Solutions

  • Inflow Measurement – measuring reservoir production performance.
  • Inter-well Performance – measuring travel paths and flow dynamics for injected water multi- well reservoirs.

After initial reservoir pressure depletes in an oil well, secondary recovery phases are used, injecting
water, steam or gas into the formation to drive the oil to the surface.

racers are the only sure way of measuring where injected water goes within the reservoir, tracking flow paths and detecting unflushed areas. Using FUORENSIC™ with unique spectral signatures
