Aubin's track record at developing cross-linkers is seen across each area of our business. Our team has developed cross-linker additives for fracturing operations used to activate gel systems.
Aubin offer several crosslinking agents specifically designed to work with guar, HPG and CMHPG based fracturing fluids; FX-22, FX-23 & FX-24.
When cross-linking agents are added to linear gels, the result is a complex, high viscosity fracturing fluid that provides a much higher proppant transport performance than linear gels. Cross-linking reduces the need for fluid thickener and extends the viscous life of the fluid indefinitely. The fracturing fluid remains viscous until a breaking agent is introduced to break the cross-linker and, eventually, the polymer. Cross-linkers can considerably improve hydraulic fracturing performance, therefore increasing well production rates.
FX-22 has been rated by CEFAS as Gold, no substitution
