Solving Produced-Water Challenges With a Novel Guar-Based System
This paper summarizes the benefits of using a bipolymer crosslinking system in environments where water quality cannot be guaranteed. It also demonstrates the yielded cost savings per well that are achievable when reusing 100% produced or flowback water for hydraulic fracturing.
New Field Testing Device for Water Competes With Laboratory Methods
Analyzing the properties of produced water is a difficult process because of the extreme levels of suspended and dissolved particulates contained in it, and a chemistry profile that is in constant flux.
Chemical Analysis of Flowback Water and Downhole Gas-Shale Samples
In this study, samples of flowback water and downhole shales are analyzed to investigate the mechanisms controlling the chemistry of flowback water.
Permian Basin Fracturing Systems Using Produced Water
This paper details the experience of using new stabilized crosslinked-fracturing-fluid systems in the Permian Basin using borated produced water.
Water Management: Lessons Learned and Considerations for a Shale Play in Argentina
This paper discusses aspects of water logistics necessary during the well-completion phase, fracture-treatment designs applied in Vaca Muerta, and laboratory studies performed on flowback and produced water to help evaluate the potential for water reuse.
