The composition of the fracturing fluid is of paramount importance for the fracture design to achieve predicable, stable results in a given formation. To achieve the expected results, the fracturing fluid relies on a variety of additives to help control the various parameters. Buffers are a type of additive used to control the pH of the fracture fluid.


Innospec’s family of GelTrol™ buffers offers a wide range of aqueous crosslinking buffers with a various percentage activity and temperature ranges to control the pH in order to optimize the hydration of the polymer systems and the performance of the crosslinker in hydraulic fracturing applications.
