What is Hydraulic Fracturing?

Hydraulic fracturing involves pumping fluid downhole at high pressures to create fractures in the formation rock.

First a “pad” is pumped downhole to initiate the fracture and stabilise well conditions to suit the upcoming fracture fluid.  Following the pad, the fracturing fluid is pumped downhole with a variety of additives. Proppant (sand or ceramics) is viscosified in the fluid and placed into the fractures to prop them open.

Before production phase, the fluid needs to break down and be brought back to the surface so it doesn’t impede the flow of hydrocarbons.

A successful treatment increases the flow of oil or gas back to the surface, improving productivity.

 

Why choose Aubin's range of fracturing additives?

Each additive in our portfolio is fully compatible with one another, and can be combined reliably to perform to the best of their ability.

Our team of experts can recommend the most suitable products based on requirements, such as fluid types, viscosity and fluid economics. Additionally, Aubin conduct custom testing and provide technical assistance whenever required.
