Raw Fracturing Site Clarksburg 2017 7 Website

BJ Services operates in six core basins, each with a single basin hub supported by additional outpost service locations. Our goal is to “Own the Basin” by aligning our team's strength and decision-making closer to the wellhead. This enables us to be highly responsive to our clients’ needs and the operating environment.

BJ focuses on sustainable engineering to solve the industry's toughest challenges. Our re-engineered and updated equipment, paired with our innovative chemistry solutions, provide reliable and efficient operations to our clients.

Basin Solutions

BJ Services has the technology and local expertise to address our clients’ challenges in the Marcellus and Utica shales, specifically gas migration and produced water.

Bradenhead Pressure coupled with stringent government regulations makes gas migration a major issue for Northeast cementing operations. BJ offers a variety of technologies to help eliminate this problem.

  • IntegraBond™ cements provide improved sealing properties to the slurry, creating a more impermeable cement matrix while minimizing shrinkage and promoting an enhanced zonal isolation
  • IntegraCem™ specialty cements create a low-hydrostatic column and high-strength cement for zonal isolation without losing fluids to the formation, and thus avoiding two-stage cementing jobs or costly secondary treatments such as squeeze jobs
  • IntegraGuard™ Star Plus 3K spacer system prevents fluid loss into fractures and establishes cement returns to surface, which ensures regulatory compliance, zonal isolation and wellbore integrity

Produced water can present several challenges during fracturing operations – higher water disposal costs, increased pressures, low hydration rates and inhibited anionic friction reducers (FR). ThinFrac™ PW is designed for high-total dissolved solids (TDS) brines up to 300K. This cationic technology exhibits superior friction reduction in waters with high iron and enables rapid hydration. Using this FR also eliminates costs and operations associated with water disposal.
