The game-changing HiWAY flow-channel hydraulic fracturing service has been deployed in the Eagle Ford over the last 24 months, which has allowed BHP Billiton Petroleum to produce its Blackhawk and Hawkville wells at improved production rates while reducing the water and proppant usage in these fields. To date, 3,200 fracturing treatments have been performed in more than 200 Blackhawk and Hawkville wells. The technology has allowed savings in excess of four million barrels of water and 200,000 tons of proppant with respect to conventional fracturing techniques. This has prevented more than 30,000 proppant and water hauling trips and eliminated more than five million pounds of CO2 emissions.
