High-performance fracture fluid outperforms conventional fluids
A High-Performance Fracturing Fluid (HPF) has led to a step change in the completion process of the San-Andres reservoir in Andrews County, Texas. Recent development in fluid technology has resulted in the introduction of a unique, patented fracturing fluid, the Halliburton MicroPolymer (HMP), that is: less damaging to the formation, has excellent proppant transportability and requires no breakers. Despite very robust and stable rheological properties during pumping, the new HPF returns to its original viscosity shortly after closure, with no internal breakers. The unique properties of this fluid are discussed herein, along with case history information.
