- #learnomethingneweveryday Not every fracture created from the surface on reservoir rocks is by hydraulic fracturing. Sometimes, instead of water (hydro) fracturing, acids are used to create fractures within rocks through which oil and gas can flow to the surface.
Acids have a way of "eating" through materials and they don't stop even with rocks. When a rock is too "tight" (have low permeability), most of the oil and gas can remain trapped even though a well has been drilled. Acids can be injected to eat up the rock, so to speak, and create channels through which reservoir fluids flow to the surface.
______________________ I know you probably wondered where we've been? I'll be frank here. We've been writing articles (tons of articles),creating quizzes and preparing online courses.
We've been working for more than 6 months on this project. It got so overwhelming at some point, that we had to pause posting on Instagram. We miss everyone.
Go show us some love. Click the link in @talkoilandgas bio and leave us a comment ;) P.S the full article on acid fracturing is already on the website;) _________________________

Fracking companies use anywhere from 2 to 10 MILLION gallons of water to perform a successful fracture. To all of this water, 200,000 L of chemicals are added to help with the process.
Katherine Manz's research examines how these chemical additives interact with rock particulates, and the subsequent impact on water quality. 💦 Come see her poster, 32G, in the afternoon poster session (1-3PM) next Thursday in the Great Room of International House! . . . #pipelineutk#womeninstem#fracking#waterquality#volresearch#gradstudent#phdlife#hydraulicfracturing#chemistry

What is coral bleaching? “When corals are stressed by changes in conditions such as temperature, light, or nutrients, they expel the symbiotic algae living in their tissues, causing them to turn completely white.” Source: @noaa
“The ocean conveyor belt could be altered which could then provoke a mini ice-age in Western Europe. This is not only amongst the least known facts on climate change, but also one which may seem to be paradoxical.” Source: Global Warming Guide & Skeptical Science.
