HiWAY Flow-Channel Fracturing Technique

Since 2010, the HiWAY flow-channel hydraulic fracturing technique has helped operators increase production while using less water and proppant. The first technique of its kind, the HiWAY technique creates stable channels within the fractures—decoupling fracture conductivity from the proppant pack. This results in infinite fracture conductivity.

Of the more than 11,400 horizontal wells in the Eagle Ford Shale, more than 1,100 liquid- and gas-producing wells have been completed using the HiWAY flow-channel fracturing technique (blue) since October 2010. Read case study
