Even in these uncertain times, one thing you can count on is our commitment to provide the best, highest-quality service and products available anywhere in the industry.
It is still too soon to predict the full effect falling oil prices will have on U.S. hydraulic fracturing, but despite dire predictions to the contrary, there is still room for hope that oil prices will rebound resulting in resurgence.
Regardless of the outcome, we will keep a close watch on the issue in the weeks and months ahead.
In this post, we provide some background into the tiny bean and discuss its history, properties and other basic facts.
Nearly half of the U.S. population relies on groundwater as their primary source of drinking water (a figure that approaches 95 percent in rural areas), making it is an important source of water that we should protect.
Here are eight facts that tell the truth about hydraulic fracturing and its effect on groundwater.
Hydraulic fracturing, or as it is commonly referred to "fracing," is a well-stimulation technique in which a hydraulically pressurized liquid fractures underground rock layers where gas and oil is trapped.
Beneficial in ways quite similar to the food industry, pet food relies heavily on guar gum, the derivative of India's guar plant, to help form the texture and consistency of the food and treats so familiar to most pet owners.
Lauding coiled tubing drilling (CTD) as "a specialized niche that's growing fast," a recent article published by Energy Global explains that it wasn't until the 1990s that "Global advances in metallurgy made it possible to spool and unspool tubing without causing metal fatigue, and with the development of larger diameter tubing and smaller diameter of downhole motors, the possibility of CTD became a reality." Since then copper tubing rigups have been increasing in number as well as efficiency.
Used in flocculation and flotation to aid in the beneficiation of extracted material, biodegradable guar polymers help to thicken slurries as well as act as a depressant for undesirable gangue.
In recent years shale exploration and shale plays have been the burgeoning buzzwords of the oil and gas industry. This growth is directly related to advances in engineering allowing the mining of previously untapped resources through the use of innovative techniques such as horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing.
The construction industry, like many industries before it, is benefiting from the unique chemical properties of the guar bean. Native to India, the guar plant produces powder and gum derivatives that are highly viscous and have strong bonding and thickening properties.
Over the last five years, the oil and gas industry has seen significant growth from innovative new drilling techniques designed to harvest resources that were previously untapped.
Whether it is the oil and gas, mining, textile, personal care, or pet supplies industry, companies in our modern world often requires unique components in order to create specifically designed products or parts.
After a two-year spat of unsteady supply and demand, guar gum is primed for success this year with a bumper crop and a larger demand than ever as the petroleum industry expands and the food industry, personal care industry, and carpet and textile industry continue to research and develop new ways of incorporating this versatile and organic material into their products.
When a company needs a specific chemical or a unique formulation or variation of a chemical, custom chemical manufacturing to fulfill their request by companies that do not typically produce such a chemical themselves.
Economy Polymers & Chemicals is the largest supplier of guar gum and guar gum slurries in North America. We also sell guar gum to a host of other industries including personal care, paper, food and mining.
Hydraulic fracturing, the process of pumping pressurized fluid into rock in order to make pockets of oil and natural gas available through fractures, is made possible by adding chemical propping agents to water and sand. According to the American Petroleum Institute, the fracking process, over a half century old, is responsible for nearly half of America's petroleum production and just over half of America's natural gas production.
March 17 marked the 65th birthday of Hydraulic Fracturing, or "Fracking" as it's more commonly known. This is an occasion worth celebrating, not just for America's oil and gas industry, but also for Americans in general.
At Economy Polymers and Chemicals we are committed to extensive research and development in order to continuously create new and better products for the industries we serve. Over the years we have made major investments in R&D - and have also made a substantial manufacturing investment in India to develop and produce new varieties of guar.
In addition to producing the highest quality guar products, we provide toll manufacturing and custom chemical blending of our customer's products. We also offer our own proprietary chemical products for various industries. By maintaining total control of the entire manufacturing cycle and supply of raw materials, we are able to ensure that our products are of the highest quality.
