HiRate™ Plus – The Ultra-Fast Hydrating Friction Reducer for Slick Water Fracturing

Challenges facing hydraulic fracturing operations vary significantly. In particular, slick water treatments depend largely on the performance of invert emulsion friction reducers to achieve and maintain pump rates required for proppant transport. Numerous types of invert emulsions have been established during field use, but are largely hindered by water quality and speed of polymer inversion. A new method for providing friction reduction rapidly through inversion, as well as offering a wide range of water compatibility, has been developed that allows customers to achieve higher pump rates while maintaining operational efficiency.
