Chemical flowback aid for fracturing is new

Free Information on Clariant Oil Services >>

HOSTAFRAC SF 13213 chemical flowback aid is announced for hydraulic fracturing.

The sugar-based surfactant is declared to "dramatically lower the fluid's surface and interface tension to significantly increase the flowback of the hydraulic fracturing fluid." It effectively lowers the formation damage caused by emulsification of the frac fluids in the reservoir.

While as little as 13% of the fluid used during the frac process can be recovered without flowback aid additives, HOSTAFRAC SF 13213 is declared to increase fluid recovery levels to as high as 87%.

The new product also offers sustainability advantages and has earned its manufacturer's EcoTain label. With this designation, HOSTAFRAC SF 13213 has undergone a systematic, in-depth screening process using 36 criteria in three sustainability dimensions: social, environmental, and economic.

Additional chemical flowback aid specifics are yours free on request.
