Bosque Systems LLC has launched a new system, called OptiFluids, which the company says saves producers up to 30% on the cost of chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing. Bosque Systems report that it allows producers to choose the best chemicals for each job rather than accepting a predetermined package from the horsepower provider.
The system aims to reduce costs by connecting producers directly with chemical manufacturers.
"We saw a niche for designing and running products on the fracturing fluids side that are tailored to the operator and to each individual well's conditions," said Robert Mitchell, Bosque's Vice President of Technology and Engineering.
Many service companies include a predetermined chemical mix in their completion package whereas Bosque's measuring technology also allows for accurate billing of chemicals used. The system monitors capabilities for each chemical individually, delivering the exact dosage throughout the hydraulic fracturing process. Bosque field experts allocate the mix, and specially-designed equipment precisely measures and delivers it to the pumps. Precise measurement means a properly optimised well, and producers pay for exactly the amount of chemicals they receive.
