ThinFrac™ PW

Minimizing freshwater requirements

ThinFrac Produced Water (PW) fracturing fluid is specially designed to deliver predictable, effective performance when using produced water from the wellsite.

The fluid is based on total dissolved solids (TDS) in the source water and water temperature. ThinFrac PW performs in waters with TDS levels up to 300,000+ mg/L and at temperatures as high as 300°F (150°C).
