Time and Pressure have never been greater to produce oil more efficiently.

Coating Place, Inc. offers a product line of Encapsulated Enzyme (Encap-ENZ) breaker products for delayed release, viscosity modifier applications in hydraulic fracturing situations. Encapsulated breaker products delay the release of the active breaker material when introduced to the fracturing fluid to allow for a more precise, uniform, and controllable discharge. The delayed release capability of Encap-ENZ enables the use of higher breaker concentrations without compromising the fracturing fluids proppant transport capabilities before the proper release time. The advantages of Encap-ENZ combine to offer improved product effectiveness and oil production efficiency in every individual facture site.

Breaker Mechanics:

A fracturing fluid made up of a high viscosity gel with a proppant, such as sand, is pumped into a well bore at an appropriate rate and pressure to produce lateral fractures to open access to surrounding crude oil and natural gas. This high viscosity fluid creates fractures that produce more return potential compared to a fluid that has a lower viscosity. Breaker, such as Encap-ENZ, is injected with the high viscosity fracturing fluid to lower the viscosity after a controlled release time thus, allowing the fluid to escape from the newly formed cracks while leaving the proppant in position to hold the fracture open. Crude oil and natural gas in the surrounding fracture zone will flow freely and can be extracted from the original well bore. The lower viscosity after viscosity modification allows for a higher rate of return on fluid used in the fracturing process.
