Book Description :

Hydraulic fracturing is a technique used to free oil and natural gas trapped underground in low-permeability rock formations by injecting a fluid under high pressure in order to crack the formations. The composition of a fracturing fluid varies with the nature of the formation, but typically contains mostly water; a proppant to keep the fractures open, such as sand; and a small percentage of chemical additives. Some of these additives may be hazardous to health and the environment. The Shale Gas Production Subcommittee of the Secretary of Energy Advisory Board (SEAB) has recommended public disclosure, on a well-by-well basis, of all the chemical ingredients added to fracturing fluids, with some protection for trade secrets. This book provides an overview of current and proposed laws and regulations at the state and federal levels that require the disclosure of the chemicals added to the fluid used in hydraulic fracturing.

Book Description :

Investigators with the House Committee on Energy and Commerce have discovered that oil and gas service companies conducting hydraulic fracturing for shale gas production used more than 2500 fracturing products containing 750 chemicals, some of which are toxic and carcinogenic. This report lists every chemical disclosed by the industry, and reveals that some of the chemicals remain proprietary and cannot be identified. According to the report: Hydraulic fracturing has helped to expand natural gas production in the United States, unlocking large natural gas supplies in shale and other unconventional formations across the country. As a result of hydraulic fracturing and advances in horizontal drilling technology, natural gas production in 2010 reached the highest level in decades. According to new estimates by the Energy Information Administration (EIA), the United States possesses natural gas resources sufficient to supply the United States for approximately 110 years. As the use of hydraulic fracturing has grown, so have concerns about its environmental and public health impacts. One concern is that hydraulic fracturing fluids used to fracture rock formations contain numerous chemicals that could harm human health and the environment, especially if they enter drinking water supplies. The opposition of many oil and gas companies to public disclosure of the chemicals they use has compounded this concern. Last Congress, the Committee on Energy and Commerce launched an investigation to examine the practice of hydraulic fracturing in the United States. As part of that inquiry, the Committee asked the 14 leading oil and gas service companies to disclose the types and volumes of the hydraulic fracturing products they used in their fluids between 2005 and 2009 and the chemical contents of those products. This report summarizes the information provided to the Committee. Between 2005 and 2009, the 14 oil and gas service companies used more than 2,500 hydraulic fracturing products containing 750 chemicals and other components. Overall, these companies used 780 million gallons of hydraulic fracturing products - not including water added at the well site - between 2005 and 2009. Some of the components used in the hydraulic fracturing products were common and generally harmless, such as salt and citric acid. Some were unexpected, such as instant coffee and walnut hulls. And some were extremely toxic, such as benzene and lead. Appendix A (included in this reproduction) lists each of the 750 chemicals and other components used in hydraulic fracturing products between 2005 and 2009.

Book Description :

The materials and chemistry used to manufacture hydraulic fracture fluids are often confusing and difficult for the practicing hydraulic fracturing engineer to understand and optimize. Many times the failure of a particular fracturing treatment is blamed on the fluid because that is a major unknown from the design engineer's viewpoint. Many of the components and processes used to manufacture the fluid are held proprietary by the service company which adds to the confusion and misunderstanding. This paper makes an attempt to describe the components used in fracturing fluids at a level that the practicing frac engineer can understand and use. The paper is intended as a companion paper to the Fracturing Fluids design paper which describes how to use the fluids and viscosity generated by the fluids to design a fracturing treatment.

Book Description :

There is a strong need for innovation and the development of viable renewable energy sources. Recent technological advances now allow natural gas supplies—previously believed inaccessible or nonexistent—to be discovered, mined, and processed for both industrial and consumer use. The technology, a controversial process that is alternatively called hydraulic fracturing, fracking, fracing, or hydrofracking, has greatly expanded natural gas production in the United States. Presenting a balanced discussion, Environmental Impacts of Hydraulic Fracturing is a comprehensive guide to all aspects of hydraulic fracturing used to extract natural gas, along with gas exploration and production in various shale fields. As the use of hydraulic fracturing has grown, concerns about its environmental and public health impacts have also increased—one of the most significant concerns being the fluids that are injected into rock formations to cause the fracturing contain potentially hazardous chemical additives. The book covers all facets of the issue, including ongoing controversies about the environmental and operator safety issues arising from possible water pollution, drinking water contamination, on-the-job safety hazards, and harmful chemical exposure to workers and residents near well areas. The author discusses both the pros and cons of hydraulic fracturing, explaining the process in great detail. He describes the benefits of hydraulic fracturing and its importance in making the United States energy independent by drilling for its own resources, as well as the potential impacts to the surrounding environment. The text also includes suggestions and recommendations on how to mitigate environmental damage. Arguably the first book of its kind, this is the go-to text on the use and impacts of hydraulic fracturing.

Book Description :

Over roughly the past decade, oil and gas production in the United States has surged dramatically—thanks largely to technological advances such as high-volume hydraulic fracturing, more commonly known as “fracking.” This rapid increase has generated widespread debate, with proponents touting economic and energy-security benefits and opponents highlighting the environmental and social risks of increased oil and gas production. Despite the heated debate, neither side has a monopoly on the facts. In this book, Daniel Raimi gives a balanced and accessible view of oil and gas development, clearly and thoroughly explaining the key issues surrounding the shale revolution. The Fracking Debate directly addresses the most common questions and concerns associated with fracking: What is fracking? Does fracking pollute the water supply? Will fracking make the United States energy independent? Does fracking cause earthquakes? How is fracking regulated? Is fracking good for the economy? Coupling a deep understanding of the scholarly research with lessons from his travels to every major U.S. oil- and gas-producing region, Raimi highlights stories of the people and communities affected by the shale revolution, for better and for worse. The Fracking Debate provides the evidence and context that have so frequently been missing from the national discussion of the future of oil and gas production, offering readers the tools to make sense of this critical issue.

Book Description :

Since the first edition of Fracking was published, hydraulic fracturing has continued to be hotly debated. Credited with bringing the US and other countries closer to “energy independence,” and blamed for tainted drinking water and earthquakes, hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) continues to be one of the hottest topics and fiercely debated issues in the energy industry and in politics. Covering all of the latest advances in fracking since the first edition was published, this expanded and updated revision still contains all of the valuable original content for the engineer or layperson to understand the technology and its ramifications. Useful not only as a tool for the practicing engineer solve day-to-day problems that come with working in hydraulic fracturing, it is also a wealth of information covering the possible downsides of what many consider to be a very valuable practice. Many others consider it dangerous, and it is important to see both sides of the argument, from an apolitical, logical standpoint. While induced hydraulic fracturing utilizes many different engineering disciplines, this book explains these concepts in an easy to understand format. The primary use of this book shall be to increase the awareness of a new and emerging technology and what the various ramifications can be. The reader shall be exposed to many engineering concepts and terms. All of these ideas and practices shall be explained within the body. A science or engineering background is not required.

Book Description :

Current practices in energized treatments, using gases and foams, remain rudimentary in comparison to other fracturing fluid technologies. None of the available 3D fracturing models for incompressible water-based fluids have been able to capture the thermal and compositional effects that are important when using energized fluids, as their constitutive equations assume single-phase, single-component, incompressible fluid flow. These models introduce a bias in fluid selection because they do not accurately capture the unique behavior of energized fluids. The lack of modeling tools specifically suited for these fluids has hindered their design and field implementation. This work uses a fully compositional 3D fracturing model to answer some of the questions surrounding the design of energized treatments. The new model is capable of handling any multi-component mixture of fluids and chemicals. Changes in fluid density, composition, and temperature are predicted using an energy balance equation and an equation of state. A wellbore model, which relates the surface and bottomhole conditions, determines the pumping requirements. Fracture performance is assessed by a fractured well productivity model that accounts for damage in the invaded zone and finite fracture conductivity. The combination of the fracture, productivity, and wellbore models forms a standalone simulator that is suitable for designing and optimizing energized treatments. The simulator offers a wide range of capabilities, making it suitable for many different applications ranging from hydraulic fracturing to long-term injections for enhanced oil recovery, well clean-up, or carbon sequestration purposes. The model is applicable to any well configuration: vertical, deviated, or horizontal. The resolution of the full 3D elasticity problem enables us to propagate the fracture across multiple layers, where height growth is controlled by the vertical distribution of the minimum horizontal stress. We conducted several sensitivity studies to compare the fracture propagation, productivity, and pumping requirements of various fluid candidates in different reservoirs. The results show that good proppant placement and high fracture conductivities can be achieved with foams and gelled fluid formulations. Foams provide a wide range of viscosities without using excessive amounts of gelling agents. They also provide superior fluid-loss control, as the filter-cake is supplemented by the presence of gas bubbles that reduce liquid-flow into the porous medium. CO2, LPG, and N2 expand significantly (by 15% or more) as the reservoir heats the fluid inside the fracture. These fluids show virtually no damage in the invaded zone, which is a significant improvement upon water-based fluids in reservoirs that are prone to water blocking. These results, however, are contingent on an accurate fluid characterization supported by experimental data; therefore, our work advocates for complementary experimental studies on fluid rheology, proppant transport, and fluid leak-off. A comprehensive sensitivity study over a wide range of reservoir conditions identified five key reservoir parameters for fluid selection: relative permeability curve, initial gas saturation, reservoir pressure, changes to rock mechanical properties, and water-sensitivity. Because energized fluids provide similar rheology and leak-off behaviors as water-based fluids, the primary design question it to evaluate the extent of the damaged zone against costs, fluid availability, and/or safety hazards. If the fluid-induced damage is acceptable, water-based fluids constitute a simple and attractive solution; otherwise, energized fluids are recommended. Notably, energized fluids are well-suited for reservoirs that are depleted, under-saturated, and/or water-sensitive. These fluids are also favorable in areas with a limited water supply. As water resources become constrained in many areas, reducing the water footprint and the environmental impact is of paramount concern, thereby making the use of energized treatments particularly attractive to replace or subsidize water in the fracturing process.
