IMPROVING STIMULATION EFFICIENCY
AND REDUCING ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
HOSTAFRAC™ SF is added to the preflush to bind to both the blocking oil and water droplets, acting
to remove the blockages and creating a uniform pathway for water to flow into the formation. Its high
compatibility with the fracturing fluid enables optimized fracture treatment, thus vastly improving overall
recovery and increasing oil and gas production.
As a flowback aid, HOSTAFRAC™ SF reduces surface and interfacial tension between rock and fracturing
fluid in a far more efficient way than a common surfactant blend, allowing the chemical additives in the
fracturing fluid to flow back without sticking to the rocks. This ensures that most of the fracturing fluid is
recovered in shorter time and helps to increase the flow of oil and gas from the reservoir. The surfactants
entailed in HOSTAFRAC™ SF are based on renewable sourced fats and sugar which, together with the
carrier system, form a super surfactant.
