RheoFrac™ LG

Greater viscosity for greater fracture conductivity

RheoFrac Low Guar (LG) fracturing fluid is a high-performance, borate-crosslinked guar polymer used to stimulate reservoirs at temperatures up to 300°F (149°C). This high-yield guar polymer generates up to 40% greater viscosity compared to similar, conventional fluids, improving proppant transport. The RheoFrac LG can be pumped with lower guar loading, resulting in reduced formation damage and optimized fracture conductivity.
