As operators continue to focus on the importance of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG), in conjunction with lowering monthly costs in the hydraulic fracturing space, the requests for higher horsepower density with lower emissions and fuel consumption have risen. This analysis will explore what eFrac means for fracturing optimization, reliability, and performance compared to conventional equipment. This paper will compare the digital capabilities of conventional equipment versus electrical equipment.

This investigation is based on the historical data of a field trial spanning approximately eight months, across several basins, and varying climates. In conjunction with this case study, it will correlate the performance of eFrac to that of conventional equipment, while focusing on three areas: visibility into pump performance, control of equipment to improve reliability, and energy conversion from fuel source to hydraulic horsepower for fracturing and its impact on efficiency.
