  • Gelling and foaming agents to help to create desired fluid rheology, to create fracture volume and area, and to transport the proppant material
  • Friction reducers to reduce the pressure needed to pump fluid into the wellbore.
  • Surfactants to optimize hydrocarbon removal by minimizing water oil-wetting of the rock surface.
  • Crosslinkers to enhance the ability of the gelling agent to transport the proppant material.
  • Breakers to force the gelling agent to break down into a less viscous fluid to aid fluid recovery later in the process.
  • pH buffers to maintain the fracturing fluid in the correct pH range for optimum rheology.
  • Biocides to prevent the growth of bacteria in the well. h) Corrosion inhibitors to prevent degradation of the steel well casing.
  • Scale inhibitors to control the precipitation of certain carbonate and sulphate materials.
  • Iron control chemicals to inhibit precipitation of iron compounds by keeping them in a soluble form.
