Surfactants for fracking

Improved Fluid Flow

Surfactants reduce the surface tension between water and oil, promoting a more efficient flowback of the fracking fluid. This ensures maximum oil and gas recovery from the reservoir.

Wettability Alteration

By changing the wettability of rock surfaces, surfactants can make reservoir rocks more oil-wet or water-wet, depending on the need. This alteration can enhance oil and gas extraction, optimizing production.

Reduction in Fluid Usage

With surfactants, there's a decrease in the amount of water needed for the fracking process. This leads to cost savings, shorter pumping times, and a lesser environmental footprint due to reduced water consumption.
