HOUSTON – Halliburton has announced the introduction of a first-of-its-kind fracture fluid system comprised of materials sourced entirely from the food industry.

The solution, which will be marketed under the trade name CleanStim Formulation, is part of the company’s new CleanSuite line of products.

“Halliburton pioneered fracturing technology more than 60 years ago, but the safe and efficient use of this technology has never been more important or in greater demand than it is right now,” said David Adams, vice president of Halliburton’s production enhancement product service line. “With the announcement today of our CleanStim Formulation and the CleanSuite line, we believe we’ve effectively set a new standard for how unconventional resources may be accessed and produced in the future.”

Information on the new product is accessible online atwww.halliburton.com/hydraulicfracturing, which also provides information on Halliburton’s new CleanStream Service and CleanWave System. The CleanStream Service uses UV light instead of additives to control bacteria, Halliburton says, and the CleanWave System treats wastewater at the wellsite, allowing it to be reused and recycled by the operator – significantly reducing the need for freshwater.

Also included on Halliburton’s new microsite is a description of the company’s advancements in the field of 3-D, subsurface fracture mapping, along with information on how the company’s Advanced Dry Polymer Blender technology is being used to reduce chemical additive usage even further.
