Halliburton pioneered fracturing technology in the mid-1940s, and has always supported and complied with state and federal requirements promoting disclosure of our additives. Much of this information has been available to the public for quite a while – although it tends to be hard to find and even tougher to understand. This site aims to change that: by naming the additives in our fracturing solutions, listing the constituents, and explaining some of their other, more common household and industrial uses.
We tailor our fracturing fluids to different geologies, so the composition will vary by location. Over time, we'll be populating these pages with information from every state and selected countries in which our services are in use. For now, we present information on several different fluid systems from a number of states and Australia. Check back often: Much more information to come.
