Fracturing Fluids: How to Frac with Less or No Water

The US Environmental Protection Agency estimates that 140 billion gal of water are needed annually for hydraulic fracturing operations in the United States alone. While that is just a fraction of the total US water usage, the industry is becoming a lightning rod in the water use debate. Add to that the growing concern about burgeoning truck traffic on local roads and the seismic activity often blamed on high-pressure wastewater injection into disposal wells, and you have an environment ripe for regulation proliferation. Additionally, the success of these technologies in North America is raising interest to develop unconventional resources in various parts of the world where freshwater resources are not readily available. The presentation will describe technologies currently available for fracturing applications using lower-quality water, fluid systems that minimize or eliminate water, and systems based on nonaqueous liquids,or even no liquids at all.

D.V. Satya Gupta is business development director of Baker Hughes Pressure Pumping Technology. He has more than 33 years of experience in oilfield chemical product development and applications.
