HOUSTON -- Halliburton has announced the commercialization of UniStim Service, its latest advancement to the H20 Forward service and suite of products aimed at reducing fresh water usage in completions.
UniStim Universal High Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) cross-link fracture fluid can enable operators to use 100% produced or flowback water. The cross-linked gelled water system has the ability to tolerate salt concentrations in excess of 300,000 PPM, as well as other contaminants.
Additionally, the high performing hydraulic fracturing fluid system allows customers to utilize waste streams to negate fresh water used in completions, with economic and environmental benefits.
