... problems associated with drilling, completing, and working over wells. Introduction Hydraulic fracturing is one of major methods to increase reservoir production. The success or failure of a fracture treatment heavily depends on the fracturing fluids and additives used in the treatment. Choosing...

... with inert particulate additives was relatively independent of pressure, in contrast to the pressure-dependent spurt loss of neat fluids. Introduction The rate of fluid leakoff to the formation during a hydraulic fracturing treatment is one of the most critical factors affecting fracture geometry...

... range from 0.5 lbm/1,000 gal to 20 lbm/1,000 gal. There are other additives contained within water fracs as well such as polymer friction reducers with surfactants, biocides, and clay stabilizers ( Grieser et al., 2003 ). Although this fracturing fluid is simple in its composition, it still yields very...

...Lisa A. Cantu; Phil A. Boyd Summary More than 200% increase in fracture conductivity and permeability was obtained when a new degradable fluid-loss-control additive was used in place of silica flour (SF) in 40-lbm crosslinked hydroxypropyl-guar (HPG) place of silica flour (SF) in 40-lbm crosslinked...

... An evaluation of acid additives and retarded acid systems indicates that the stimulation resulting from acid fracturing can be increased when effective fluid loss additives used in HC1, or when the acid viscosity is increased significantly. Acid emulsions were found to have a low fluid loss rate...

.... Another additive (additive-B) was a water-soluble salt. At right dosage, the salt could enhance the high-temperature stability of the fluids. In the meantime, the salt was also able to control crosslinking of the fracturing fluids, making it possible to greatly facilitate fluid placement. The underlying...
