Hydraulic fracturing set to reduce greenhouse gases using waterless solution

9/8/2015

CALGARY, Alberta -- Millennium Stimulation Services is introducing a patented process of using Energized Natural Gas (ENG) as a fluid solution for hydraulic fracturing.

This process allows a virtually complete replacement of water volumes while eliminating the need to vent gas or flare gas emissions into the atmosphere. E&P companies also stand to benefit from improved finding and development costs.

Government environmental initiatives and economic stability are key driving factors in the deployment of ENG as a fracturing solution. Currently, the industry utilizes either high volumes of water or gases such as nitrogen or CO2 in the fracturing process.

All of the current solutions present an array of problems that using ENG can either significantly reduce or completely eliminate. Companies using ENG receive an additional benefit through improved well production and gas recovery.

The increase in well productivity is the reason producers prefer to pump gas as opposed to water. Current gases being deployed, however, require the producer to vent or flare gas into the atmosphere until it meets production specifications. ENG on the other hand meets those same specifications without the need to vent or flare. Producers can flow all produced gas straight into the sales line, thus profiting on otherwise lost product. ENG can also improve both reservoir productivity levels and cumulative production.
