Information profile @ a Glance
  • Drag reducing additives are important in oil drilling applications and the maintenance
    of pumping equipment in pipelines
  • Application of drag reducers is the use of guar in oil well fracturing
  • This fracturing fluid contains guar, cross-linking agent, proppant and water ;  Proppants are sands or coarse particles.
  • The role of guar gel is very important in successfulness of the hydraulic fracturing process
  • Guar is the most popular polymer to use as main component of fracturing fluid. Guar itself cannot form highly viscous gel.
    Even those guars can hydrate fast and from viscous solution at low concentration,
    it also can cross-link with a cross-linking agent and other additives to yield a good gel. Common cross-linker used is boron, borax or zirconium. Additives are used to maintain optimum viscosity at high temperature during fracturing process
  • Guar gum comprises of many qualities: low cost, well hydration, high stability,
    high nutrition, and modifiable ability that makes it high demand in many applications, especially in food industry and oil field
  • There are more than 110 Guar gum spilt plants with a total installed capacity of
    more than 6 lakh tonnes per annum, fitted with indigenous plant machinery in India
  • India is the major producer of Guar Seed followed by Pakistan and US. India accounts for 80% of the total guar produced in the world. Maximum produces from India are exported to US and Europe. Local
    consumption of the gum is also very high
  • The global market for oilfield chemicals is around US$ 12 billion
