Case Study

FluidMatch™ Improves FR Performance and Reduces Overall Fluid Costs

Study Overview

A customer in the Powder River Basin sought higher performance in the category of high brine tolerant friction reducers. The friction reducer previously utilized by the customer was selected primarily based on price but exhibited suboptimal performance relative to tubular friction pressure at high pumping rates. The customer recognized the risks of utilizing incompatible friction reducers with higher treating pressures that could cause stress on surface equipment and compromise casing integrity…
