The use of UltraMARINE seawater-base fracturing fluid simplifies offshore fracturing operations with unlimited availability and similar composition around the world with only small variations. Furthermore, UltraMARINE fluid can be used with brackish water for onshore operation in areas where freshwater availability is limited.
UltraMARINE fluid is engineered to provide optimized viscosity at bottomhole conditions to improve fluid performance during fracturing operations. The fluid is designed for enhanced thermal stability and has a bottomhole temperature range of 175 to 325 degF.
As an effective temporary scale inhibition for application in reservoirs with scaling tendency waters, UltraMARINE fluid mitigates the risk of scale precipitating from the seawater by controlling the pH. UltraMARINE fluid has a high tolerance to salt content and has been tested in waters with total dissolved solids (TDS) in excess of 100,000 ppm.
