Frac Fluid Clean Up

Proper fluid and proppant placement are critical to a successful propped fracture stimulation treatment. Despite effective placement of the treatment, well performance is often detrimentally affected by incomplete gel breaking and fluid recovery.


Water-based polymer gels are used widely in the oil and gas industry to viscosify fluids used in the hydraulic fracturing of production wells, where they serve to increase the force applied to the rock and to improve the transport of proppants used to maintain the fracture after formation. After fracturing, the gel must be degraded to a low viscosity with enzymes or gel breakers.
