Study on Fracturing Fluids System in Hydraulic Fracturing Treatment
Amit Das, Zayed Bin Sultan
Fracturing fluid is the most dominant factor in hydraulic fracturing treatment. The efficiency of fracturing treatment is much more dependent on the proper selection of the fracturing fluids. When fracturing takes place, viscosity plays a most important role in providing required fracture width to ensure proppant entrance in to the fracture, carrying the proppant from the wellbore to the fracture tip, generating a desired net pressure to control height growth and providing fluid loss control. The fluid that is used to create the desired viscosity must be safe to handle, environmentally friendly, non-damaging to the fracture conductivity and reservoir permeability, easy to mix, inexpensive and able to control fluid loss. This is a very important list of requirements that has been recognized since the beginning of Hydraulic fracturing. In this paper there will be discussed on the history of fracturing fluids, the engineering requirement of a good fracturing fluid, the types of fracturing fluids and also the types fracturing fluid additives used in fracturing treatment.
