Clariant Oil Services' new HOSTAFRAC® SF 13213 delivers a step change for flowback aid sustainability


New innovative chemical system enables faster and more efficient return of fracture fluid
Surfactant subsystem contains sustainably sourced sugar-based amide surfactants
Receives EcoTain® label for sustainability excellence

Houston, TX, August 25, 2015 - Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, today announced its new HOSTAFRAC® SF 13213 innovative chemical flowback aid for hydraulic fracturing.

The new sugar-based surfactant dramatically lowers the fluid's surface and interface tension to significantly increase the flowback of the hydraulic fracturing fluid. HOSTAFRAC SF 13213 effectively lowers the formation damage caused by emulsification of the fracture fluids in the reservoir. While as little as 13 percent of the fluid used during the hydraulic fracturing process can be recovered without flowback aid additives, the new HOSTAFRAC SF 13213 increases fluid recovery levels to as high as 87 percent.

Offering significant sustainability advantages, HOSTAFRAC SF 13213 has earned Clariant's EcoTain® label for sustainability. Products with this designation undergo a systematic, in-depth screening process using 36 criteria in three sustainability dimensions: social, environmental and economic. EcoTain products significantly exceed sustainability market standards, have best-in-class performance and contribute overall to the sustainability efforts of Clariant and its customers.

"Employing sustainably sourced sugar in this advanced delivery system is state-of-the-art and represents a step change for sustainability efforts with regard to hydraulic fracturing," says Dr. Jonathan Wylde, global head of innovation for Clariant Oil Services. "This development will truly make a difference for our customers' operations by delivering a high-performance chemistry that also improves their operation's environmental profile."
