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.
