Fracking Chemicals and Fluids Market in the US 2014-2018
Fracking chemicals and fluids are utilized in the fracturing technique, commonly known as hydraulic fracturing. Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is a technique of well stimulation in which a fluid (typically water mixed with sand and chemicals) is injected at high pressure into a well to create minor fractures in the deep rock foundations to allow natural gas, petroleum, and brine to move toward the well from deep reserves. The technique of fracking is commonly applied to wells for shale gas and oil recovery. Such stimulation is usually carried out once during the productive life of the well, which helps in the elimination of fluids (gas and oil), increasing the productivity of the well. The hydraulic fracturing technique is used because field production is declining with time. The composition of fracking chemicals and fluids varies depending on the type of fracturing used, the conditions of the specific well that is being fractured, and the characteristics of water. A typical fracture treatment uses between 3 and 12 chemical additives. Covered in this Report
