Fracturing Fluid Additives

High specification ceramic proppants

Proppant is the term given to any material that is added to a fracturing fluid with the purpose of holding open the fracture and creating a medium with greater permeability [...]

High-temperature stabilizers

Linear gel may dehydrate due to exposure to high-temperature, causing a loss of viscosity and risk of screen-out – cessation of pumping due to loss of fracture width which [...]

Surfactants

SimulsolTM SL 11 W Surfactants are chemicals containing hydrophilic and hydrophobic groups (water and oil soluble groups respectively) and primarily reduce the interfacial [...]

Fluid breakers for fracture clean-up

In general, a fracturing fluid may break after time, due to extended exposure to reservoir pressure and temperature, however, breakers are used in cross-linked systems to [...]

Foaming agents for foamed fracturing

AmonylTM 380 BA SimulsolTM SL 10 SimulsolTM SL 11 W In low-pressured reservoirs (either naturally under-pressured or depleted reservoirs), the concern is that during a [...]

VES fluid fracturing system

Viscoelastic surfactants (VES) are a non-polymer viscous fluid, that uses the hydrophilic and hydrophobic characteristics of the micelles in surfactants to create viscosity [...]
