Offshore Segment to Grow Rapidly Owing to Numerous Unexplored Region

In terms of application, the global hydraulic fracturing market is grouped into onshore and offshore. Out of these, the onshore hydraulic fracturing is likely to exhibit notable growth during the forecast period. It is likely to occur due to the competitive cost of onshore drilling operation and the availability of advanced technology. Hence, numerous government agencies, as well as organizations are investing huge sums in the development of onshore exploration activities. It is expected to continue throughout the forthcoming years due to reasonable operational accessibility. The report further mentions that offshore hydraulic fracturing is projected to have immense potential to grow in the coming years. Availability of hydrocarbon in abundance and the presence of several unexplored regions are two of the main factors that would propel growth of the offshore segment.

Ease of Operation to Increase Usage of Plug and Perf Technology Across the World

On the bases of technology, the global hydraulic fracturing market is categorized into sliding sleeve and plug and perf. Amongst these, the plug and perf sub-segment is anticipated to grow at a fast pace during the forecast period. Competitive cost and ease of operation are two of the most significant factors that would drive the segment in the coming years. Moreover, it not only cuts down the production cost but also enables the performance of well for higher production. Because of all the above benefits, the plug and perf technology is commonly used across the world. But, the sliding sleeve technology segment is still undergoing research and development.

Halliburton Unveils Elect Frac Sleeve to Enable Unlimited Stage Count

Halliburton, an oil field service company, based in the U.S., launched its new monobore sleeve solution called Elect frac sleeve in July 2019. The solution is an innovative step towards the field of completion sleeves. It allows unlimited stage count in a multistage fracturing operation. It further supports more flexibility for highly optimized reservoir access and provides options for pinpoint well simulation. It doesn’t have flow rate restrictions and inner diameter for contacting with the reservoir or optimizing zonal simulation treatment. One of the advantages of having no internal restrictions is that it would enable longer laterals and more frac treatment options.

Furthermore, the new sleeve utilizes the power of electronics to provide efficient hydraulic fracturing. Software, firmware, and hardware work in tandem to transform the sleeves into a downhole solution. The solution is based on pre-programmed parameters. It is one of the most innovative technologies that would take Halliburton forward in the evolution of digital competition solutions.
