Murray Hill and New Providence, N.J., July 30, 2012 – Linde North America, a member of The Linde Group, a world-leading gases and engineering company, today announced that Linde technology specialist Robin Watts, the oil & gas technology manager for Linde’s Energy Solutions business in North America, will present “Fracturing Applications for C02 and N2,” at the EUCI Engineering and Technology Developments in Hydraulic Fracturing conference on July 30, 2012. This conference will explore engineering applications and technologies used to maximize hydrocarbon capture from unconventional plays.
Watts will discuss the challenges of working with unconventional reservoirs. She will explain how stimulation approaches using energized solutions that incorporate nitrogen or carbon dioxide can increase the overall productivity of wells over the entire lifecycle, while reducing the water needed for the fracturing process and minimizing environmental effects. Using real-life case studies, Watts identifies which wells may benefit from the use of energized fluids and key considerations guiding their use. Linde has decades of experience with the successful application of energized solutions in the production of hydrocarbons from unconventional sources such as shale.
“This conference attracts hydraulic fracturing professionals who want to learn specific techniques to maximize the value of their wells in economical and minimize the environmental impact,” notes Watts. “As a leading provider of energized fluids, Linde stands ready to provide solutions to help our customers achieve these goals.”
The EUCI conference will be held in Denver, CO, July 30-31, 2012. For more information, visit http://www.euci.com/events/agenda.php?ci=1653&t=A
