Fracturing Chemicals

Hydraulic fracturing is the process of pumping water or oil-based fluids with a proppant at sufficient pressure to create a fracture in a hydrocarbon-bearing reservoir. The goal is to create a propped fracture or pathway that will increase the well productivity. Often the well will not produce at economic rates without such a treatment.An in-depth discussion of the process is not possible here, but the completion engineer will deal with rock mechanics, fluid dynamics, chemistry and other complex issues in an effort to design a successful treatment.
