Gelling agents are the starting foundation for most traditional crosslinker fluid systems. Mixed with other components, these gelling agents provide fluid loss control, viscosity control, and proppant carrying capacity. The optimised product and loadings are normally determined by laboratory testing.
LFC-G4 is a 4 ppg guar slurry comprised of a medium grade guar gum dispersed in a hydro-treated paraffin-based oil.
- Fast hydrating polymer
- Dispersed in an environmentally acceptable hydro-treated paraffin oil
- Acceptable performance in water temperatures as low as 40°F (4.5°C)
- Enhanced high viscosity with borate cross-linkers at higher pH values
- Excellent proppant transport in hydraulic fracturing applications
