Taking unconventional extraction further
Hydraulic fracturing requires fluids that perform effectively under stringent down-hole conditions. The composition of fracturing fluids can vary widely depending on geology. The vast majority of wells are fractured with water-based fluids, composed of over 99.5% water and proppant (often sand or ceramic beads) and less than 0.5% additives. The additives, while present in very low concentration, provide vital performance enhancements. Purified by an advanced hydrogenation process, Escaid™ PathFrac™ fluid effectively facilitates the delivery of key additives which drive the performance of fracturing fluid formulations.
