What is the Hydraulic Fracturing ? Back ->

Time: 2018-10-11

Hydraulic fracturing (also fracking, fraccing, frac'ing, hydrofracturing or hydrofracking) is a well stimulation technique in which rock is fractured by a pressurized liquid. The process involves the high-pressure injection of 'fracking fluid' (primarily water, containing sand or other proppants suspended with the aid of thickening agents) into a wellbore to create cracks in the deep-rock formations through which natural gas, petroleum, and brine will flow more freely. When the hydraulic pressure is removed from the well, small grains of hydraulic fracturing proppants (either sand or aluminium oxide) hold the fractures open.

Hydraulic fracturing began as an experiment in 1947, and the first commercially successful application followed in 1950. As of 2012, 2.5 million "frac jobs" had been performed worldwide on oil and gas wells; over one million of those within the U.S.Such treatment is generally necessary to achieve adequate flow rates in shale gas, tight gas, tight oil, and coal seam gas wells. Some hydraulic fractures can form naturally in certain veins or dikes.

Wanli Proppant supply different kinds of ceramic proppant for well fracturing operation around the whole world. We can supply Lite, ISP, HSP in different meshes. Product has get approval from Aramco (Saudi Arabia), YPF(Argentina), Total(French), PDO(Oman), ADNOC(U.A.E.). And with the development of Wanli, we got cooperation with the oil company and oil service company around the whole world. Where there is a fracturing, there will be Wanli.

Wanli Proppant is always your best choice.
