Basin-specific knowledge and expertise, global experience, and innovative technologies have established Halliburton as North America's leader in unconventional resources, leveraging lessons learned locally and replicating success in emerging unconventional markets worldwide.

  • Subsurface Insight accelerates reservoir understanding and recovery
    Knowing what's below the surface – where to drill, how to drill, where to frac, and how to frac – makes it possible to locate bypassed reserves more precisely, and maximize the NPV of your asset.
  • Customized Chemistry helps improve well economics and increase production
    Tailored fracturing fluids for your unconventional well can boost production and significantly increase estimated ultimate recovery rates for new completions and refracturing operations.
  • Surface Efficiency can save costs and reduce environmental impact
    Reliable and efficient operations can result in less capital and fewer personnel on location, time and cost savings, and lessen environmental footprint.

We work closely with our customers around the world to increase EUR and help them lower their cost per BOE, every step of the way.
