Ammonium Persulfate based Gel Breaker for Fracturing Fluid Manufacturers
Shale Gas Hydraulic fracking is a technology to enhance productivity and maximize recovery in oil and gas wells. Guar gum is generally used for making the fracing-fluid and keep the sand particles or proppant in suspension. The high viscosity fracturing fluid is pumped in and the hloe is fractured. After fracturing, the viscous guar gum is required to be broken for reducing the viscosity and get hydrocarbons to flow out of the fractured formation. This decrease is achieved by using an oxidizer like Ammonium Persulphate or Potassium Persulphate or Bromates. It is often referred to as gel breaker. Gel-breaking mechanism is chemically built directly into the gel structure itself and for this delayed gel reversal is temperature and time is controllable.
Coated or Encapsulate Ammonium Persulfate, based coated chemical to be active at 140F or 60C called low temperature delayed release gel breaker is used for breaking gel up to temperatures of 200F or a little more.
Coated or Encapsulate Potassium Persulfate based coated chemical to be active at 195F or 90C called high temperature delayed release gel breaker is used when significantly higher down-hole temperatures up to 300F or 150C are expected.
Coated or Encapsulated Sodium Bromate based gel breaker for very high temperatures. It will not be active up to 240F or 115C and is suggested for use at 280F to 330F or 138C to 165C.
Ammonium persulfate gel breaker testing at 100 rpm in a beaker with water at 150F or 65C beaker
When tested at higher rpm with sand in the breaker, it dissolves 70-80% in 6 hours.
An Asian fracturing company has reported the below mentioned graph.
We have designed the product for a slower release. The release rate can be increased or even decrease to match any profile.
Potassium Persulfate based Gel Breaker has similar profile at 212F or 100C.
