Salik local-sand-enabled flow-channel fracturing service enables substituting cost-saving locally sourced propping agents to the HiWAY flow-channel fracturing technique. Because the technique does not depend on proppant quality for conductivity, operators can use Salik service to replace more than 50% of the ceramic proppant normally required for a fracturing job with inexpensive, locally sourced sand, resulting in increased cost savings.
Salik service is deployed using HiWAY fracturing technique, which improves fracture contact area and well productivity. With this technique, Salik service enables hydrocarbons to flow through stable channels, optimizing the well’s long-term production performance.
Additional cost savings are realized because less ceramic proppant is needed for fracturing using Salik service enabled by HiWAY technique. Reducing the amount of ceramic proppant required also decreases associated transportation expenses.
