TriFrac-MLT is an innovative, high performance hydraulic fracturing fluid system that enables operators to use 100% flowback or produced water. TriFrac-MLT has been specifically designed to address four key issues currently facing the hydraulic fracturing industry:

  • To eliminate the use of freshwater resources
  • To reduce the costs associated with treating flowback or produced water to meet conventional reuse standards
  • To simplify the logistics associated with produced water reuse programs
  • To reduce the secondary waste streams caused when produced waters are treated for reuse

Formulated using conventional fracturing fluid components enhanced with patent-pending chemistry, this crosslinked gelled water system is highly tolerant of brine fluids. This tolerance allows the re-use of untreated frac flowback water or produced water that is produced along with oil and/or gas from a well. TriFrac-MLT enables operators to use waters with total dissolved solids (TDS) levels greater than 300,000 ppm, and hardness greater than 30,000 ppm. Unlike most conventional fracturing fluid systems that are negatively affected by boron, TriFrac-MLT’s unique chemistry supports use in waters with boron levels exceeding 500 ppm.

TriFrac-MLT eliminates the cost associated with upfront freshwater acquisition, and repurposes flowback and produced water into an asset that can be incorporated into the fracturing fluid systems, rather than becoming a waste product in need of disposal. Additionally, the need for wastewater treatment equipment is eliminated, providing further savings.

TriFrac-MLT Advantages

  • Minimizes the use of freshwater resources
  • Reduces costs due to eliminated freshwater acquisition and disposal
  • Extremely high tolerance to brine fluids
  • Can be used in untreated water with boron levels exceeding 500 ppm
  • Customizable breaker schedule for optimized viscosity
  • Operates at a broad temperature range from 49°C (120°F) to 149°C (300°F) 
  • Crosslinks at temperatures as low as 7°C (45°F), reducing fluid heating costs
