Networking Break


Leonard Chan, CCC Chemicals
Usage of Amendments in Conjunction with Fracturing Techniques

  • An overview of amendments (chemical oxidants, chemical reductants, and biostimulants) that can be used in conjunction with fracturing techniques.
  • Discussion to include basic remedial design concepts and theory regarding underlying mechanisms that govern the usage of the aforementioned amendments.


Bruce Tunnicliffe, Vertex Environmental
