Fracturing Fluid Systems

Maximize production with clean, efficient fracturing fluids

From high-shear resistant gels to high-regain permeability breaker technology, each Baker Hughes hydraulic fracturing fluid is designed to meet specific reservoir needs and key operational requirements.

We look at every fracturing job from a holistic point of view—matching fluids to the optimal pumping scheme to maximize operational efficiency without sacrificing hydrocarbon flow. Our goal: deliver a safe, effective fracture network and only leave behind the minimum material needed to keep it open for production.

Our superior fracturing fluids range from proven guar-based fluids to high-performance slickwater systems and high-molecular-weight polymer systems designed to maximize recovery. We also offer a suite of customized fluids designed for use with produced water or other high-TDS fluids. And, based on your reservoir conditions, we can even design and pump a customized fracturing fluid that incorporates proactive flow assurance using our proven StimPlus service.

In an effort to minimize the environmental impact of each fracturing operation, we evaluate each frac fluid’s chemical components against our SmartCare services’ 14-point checklist of environmental, toxicological, and physical categories. This standardized evaluation process identifies any potential product hazards for enhanced regulatory compliance and helps ensure underground source drinking water remains safe during the well life.


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.


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.


VaporFrac Fracturing Fluid

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


BrineCare Fracturing Fluid Systems

BrineCare™ systems are simple, easy-to-deploy fracturing fluids specifically engineered to ensure reliable performance with produced water across a specific range of TDS and water temperatures.


PrimeStar Frac Pack Fluid System

The PrimeStar™ system reduces hydraulic horsepower (HHP) requirements and offers improved compatibility with reservoir fluids and minerals.

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.
