Hydraulic Fracturing

Maximize well productivity with the right stimulation technology

Baker Hughes hydraulic fracturing services maximize well productivity with effective, application-specific solutions instead of a one-size-fits-all approach. We look at every fracturing job from several aspects, combining proppants, fluids, and pumping technology with a formal workflow and better knowledge management systems.

Our qualified, superior approach is based on decades of best practices for optimizing completions. These best practices are supported by a logical structure of rock and fluid system fundamentals. Applying the Baker Hughes Understand the Reservoir First™ (UTRF) studies, we match reservoirs to treatments by determining the best methods to maximize production.

The result is a more effective completion or recompletion. Your two best investments for increasing production are knowing every aspect of the reservoir and having the right stimulation technology.


VaporFrac Fracturing Fluid

Besides increased production, you’ll achieve a decreased decline rate with an increased reserve replacement rate.


LiteProp Ultralightweight Proppants

The improved transport properties in low- or no-polymer frac-fluid systems offer greater effective frac length with maximum producing-zone conductivity.


HydroCare Slickwater Fracturing System

This is an environmentally preferred slickwater system. Compatible products work together as a suite to maximize well stimulation impact without sacrificing performance.


StimPlus Service

We combine hydraulic fracturing/production chemistry to maximize post-frac production and minimize post-frac intervention cost from scale, organic deposition, bacteria, corrosion.


Global Shale Team

Our technology team comprises geologists, geomechanics, and reservoir engineers with more than 25 years experience per person. We know how to exploit your unconventional assets.


IntelliFrac Service

Microseismic hydraulic fracture monitoring and our pressure pumping services improve reservoir understanding by measuring the earth’s dynamic response to the stimulation.


Multistage Hydraulic Fracturing

Stimulates your reservoir effectively with an engineered solution. This fracturing system eliminates rig up and rig down while maximizing reservoir drainage.


ClearStar Fracturing Fluid System

ClearStar frac fluids use a high-molecular-weight polymer to improve reservoir performance, maximize recovery, minimize formation damage, simplify cleanup, and boost conductivity.
