Why Not Use "Energy" From Oil Drilling?
What is Fracking ?
Fracking evaluates the fractures in shale and how to extract oil and replace it with a water and micro-silica mix to maintain the pressure. Any of my oil-connections are free to comment and update my summation of the fracking process. So, Fracking can use products like Haliburtons AccessFrac or Elkems Micromax
What is AccessFrac?
Haliburton, recommend “AccessFrac” They say that “wells result in very small annular clearances. These help to create much larger pressures losses than encountered in normal drilling and can be problematic.”
Elkem recommends their product, "Micromax®"
What is MicroMax?
“Micromax® is a self-stabilizing weight material for use in drilling, completion and cementing fluids. It comprises microspherical particles of manganese tetraoxide, which enable fluids of high density with low ECD, minimal sag & formation damage mitigation.”
What is ECD?
According to Schlumberger, ECD, or Equivalent Circulating Density, is a calculation which measures mud-weight and pressure drop in vertical feet to aid in the fracking process.
