Hydraulic Fracturing, commonly called fracking, is an oil and gas well development process that typically involves injecting water, sand, and chemicals under high pressure into a bedrock formation via the well.
In the oil drilling industry, among various operating fluids required for fracturing operations, HEC is used as a thickener to obtain good fluidity and stability of slurries.
MikaZone™ cellulose ether with high thickening effect, high pseudoplasticity, easy initial mixing by adequate delayed solubility and good dissolving behavior in the field are recommended.
The high viscosity of MikaZone™ Hydroxyethyl Cellulose(HEC) is recommended for hydraulic fracturing.
