Gelling agents and viscosifiers ensure the correct placement of proppants in hydraulic fracturing.

Our WGA-1 & WGA-2 improves fluid rheology by increasing viscosity of the fracturing fluid.Increasing viscosity creates wider fractures, which changes fluid viscosity in the fracture and improves proppant placement. With the increase of viscosity of WGA-1 & WGA-2 gelled fluids, proppants are carried further from the well bore, increasing the drainage radius.

The possibility of screen-outs are reduced and fracture conductivity is increased because the viscosity decreases proppant settling rates due to gravity, both while pumping and at the end of pumping.
