Hydraulic Fracturing Additives


Hydraulic fracturing refers to the procedure of creating fractures in rocks and rock formations by injecting a mixture of sand, water and chemicals.

The technique of hydraulic fracturing is used to initiate, increase or restore the rate at which hydrocarbons, such as oil, gas or water, can be produced from a reservoir. The fracture provides a conductive path connecting a larger area of the reservoir to the well, thereby increasing the area from which hydrocarbons are produced.

Chemteck offers numerous fracturing additives that modify the fracturing fluid properties to allow pumping service companies to design a fracturing fluid system for each individual well program.

Oil & Gas fracturing additives include:

  • Biocides
  • Buffers
  • Clay Stabilizers
  • Defoamers/Anti-Foamers
  • Diverting Agents
  • Fluid Loss Additives
  • Foaming Agents
  • Friction Reducers
  • Oxygen Scavengers
  • Paraffin Control Agents
  • Proppants
  • Surfactants
  • Water Gellant Breakers
  • Water GellantCrosslinkers
  • Water Gellant Extenders
  • Water Gellants
