Engineered friction reducers enhance proppant transport

January 2018 Issue of E&P Magazine

Shafeeq Khan, Linguan Shen and Nicholas Everson

Description: Reducing friction is a long-established challenge that operators must overcome to decrease fluid flow friction and enable high-rate pumping without requiring more pressure generation at the surface.  Recent advances in polymer chemistry have led to the creation of polyacrylamide-based technologies that can provide a greater reduction in pipe friction and enhance proppant transport over conventional slickwater fluids.
