OpenFRAC

Fully disclosed hydraulic fracturing fluids

As part of the Schlumberger hydraulic fracturing portfolio, the OpenFRAC full-disclosure fracturing additive sys- tems assure high performance for a range of applications.

Resulting from an extensive development and testing program, OpenFRAC fully disclosed hydraulic fracturing fluids assure high performance. Operators receive full disclosure of additive components, a disclosure level similar to that used in the food industry.

Fluid options

Several formulations of OpenFRAC fluids are available, addressing

  • crosslink gel
  • linear gel
  • slickwater.

All are water-based, viscosified fluids comprising components that function in a wide range of mix-water compositions, and all are well suited for recycling and reuse. Optional additives inhibit mineral scale formation, promote load-water recovery and cleanup, and stabilize clays in the formation.

OpenFRAC SW fluid formulation is used for slickwater fracturing, where drag reduction and less-complex fluid systems are desired. OpenFRAC WF fluid is the linear gel variant, offering improved proppant transport characteristics. And for crosslinking, OpenFRAC XL fluid not only maintains all the advantages of the aforementioned fluids but also creates wider fractures to enable high proppant concentrations and generate high fracture conductivity.
