On time.On budget. On plan.

The tight margins associated with unconventional wells demand truly exceptional efficiency. Thankfully, our highly experienced team have all the competency and knowledge you need to keep your operation on plan. Where efficiency drives can often lead to standardization – our approach is much more adaptable. Anticipating challenges and assessing the properties of each well, right down to the quality of source water, to optimize the impact of fluid systems on operational performance.

Enhance pressure control and proppant distribution

Our unconventional stimulation fluids solutions are engineered to maximize the creation of complex fracture networks and efficiently transport proppant into that network. Optimizing reservoir contact and conductivity to increase your EUR and lower costs.

Newpark’s hydraulic fracturing fluids portfolio comprises of a full line of chemical components that can be used to build efficient and non-damaging slickwater or gelled frac fluids in field waters of ranging salinities – from freshwater to extremely high Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) brines (up to 300K TDS).

Our stimulation solutions also contain high viscosity friction reducers (HVFRs) that can transport higher loadings of proppant compared to standard friction reducers (FRs) at low treatment dosages. These provide an alternative to more damaging guar based fluids.
