Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/12/2015 --Hydraulic Fracturing Market by Geography & by Well Type (Horizontal and Vertical) and Shale Play in the U.S. - Global Trends and Forecast to 2014 - 2019
This report estimates the hydraulic fracturing market, in terms of market size and market share. The market size has been estimated in terms of $million, whereas share in terms of million hydraulic horse power. This has been broken down into regions and U.S. shale plays; shale is split into well types (horizontal and vertical).
Hydraulic fracturing is a method of propagating fractures on reservoirs having low permeability to increase the flow of oil and/or gas from shale formation, which eventually improves exploration and production activities. Fracturing fluids are pushed through well casings with high pressure, which allows oil and/or gas to flow from the wellbore. High pressure is maintained in the wellbores to create fractures perpendicular to the well. The ingredients of such fluids are water-based content (sand and water), additives, and proppants. Proppants have the capability to maintain fractures intact of adequate width.
