HiWAY Flow-Channel Fracturing Technique

Reduce footprint without sacrificing production

The HiWAY flow-channel fracturing technique significantly increases fracture conductivity while reducing water and proppant consumption. This means higher short- and long-term production, simpler logistics, and a smaller operational footprint.

Create infinite fracture conductivity

The HiWAY technique fundamentally changes the way proppant fractures generate conductivity. The first of its kind, the HiWAY technique creates open pathways inside the fracture, enabling hydrocarbons to flow through the stable channels rather than the proppant. This optimizes connectivity between the reservoir and the wellbore—resulting in infinite fracture conductivity.

Improve performance in vertical and horizontal wells

The HiWAY technique has improved time to sales, fluid recovery, initial production rate, and average-well estimated ultimate recovery (EUR) in more than 4,000 jobs worldwide—including the Rocky Mountain region of the US and the Sierras Blancas formation in Argentina.
