The CleanStim from Halliburton fracturing service uses a new fracturing fluid formulation made with ingredients sourced from the food industry.
The CleanStim fluid system components include a gelling agent, crosslinker/buffer, breakers and a surfactant. Before use, the CleanStim formulation is mixed at the job site with the water provided by the operator.
CleanStim can be crosslinked and used for conventional gelled fracturing treatments. In addition, the components can be used to provide friction reduction for water frac treatments commonly used in shale reservoirs.
