Fracking Chemicals and Fluid Market by Fluid & Well Type, and Chemicals (Acid, Surfactant, Biocide, Gelling Agent, Cross Linker, Breaker, Scale & Corrosion Inhibitor, Clay & Iron Control, Friction Reducer) - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2018

NEW YORK, Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Fracking Chemicals and Fluid Market by Fluid & Well Type, and Chemicals (Acid, Surfactant, Biocide, Gelling Agent, Cross Linker, Breaker, Scale & Corrosion Inhibitor, Clay & Iron Control, Friction Reducer) - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2018
http://www.reportlinker.com/p02000134/Fracking-Chemicals-and-Fluid-Market-by-Fluid--Well-Type-and-Chemicals-Acid-Surfactant-Biocide-Gelling-Agent-Cross-Linker-Breaker-Scale--Corrosion-Inhibitor-Clay--Iron-Control-Friction-Reducer---Global-Trends--Forecasts-to-2018.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Oil_and_Gas_energy

The global fracking (hydraulic fracturing) fluids market is likely to witness a CAGR of 9.6% from 2013 to 2018. North America is the largest market for fracking fluids and chemicals, followed by Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

The fracking fluids market includes the major types of fluid base used such as Water-based, Gelled Oil-based, and Foam-based. The fracking chemicals include Acids, Biocide, Breaker, Clay Stabilizer, Corrosion Inhibitor, Cross-linker, Friction Reducer, Gelling Agent, Iron Control, pH Adjusting Agent, Scale Inhibitors, and Surfactant. This report on fracking chemicals and fluids cover market trends and estimates for all type of chemicals and fluids. The fracking fluids are also separated by the type of well i.e. horizontal and vertical.

The trends in drilling have been changing from vertical to horizontal as the unconventional reserves are being developed. The unconventional oil and gas resources such as shale gas require horizontal drilling to cover a larger surface area, increasing the rate of production of gas. The horizontal wells require more amount of fracking fluids and chemicals when compared to vertical wells. These increasing trends in horizontal drilling in unconventional reserves will in turn drive the demand of fracking fluids and chemicals.

This market has experienced backward integration of the fracking companies into the production of fracking chemicals and fluids. Apart from the hydraulic fracturing companies, the chemicals companies have set up separate departments for the development of oilfield chemicals that work to manufacture the fluids and chemicals with the desired properties.

This report on fracking chemicals and fluids segments the fracking fluids by fluid type, well type and geography in terms of revenue generated and fracking chemicals by functional group and geography in terms of volume and revenue.

This report analyzes the various marketing trends and establishes the most effective growth strategy in the market. It identifies market dynamics such as drivers, restraints, opportunities, burning issues, and winning imperatives. Major companies such as Baker Hughes (U.S.), Chevron Phillips Chemical (U.S.), Halliburton (U.S.), Linde (Germany), Schlumberger (U.S.), Weatherford (Switzerland), Calfrac Well Services (Canada), FTS International (U.S.), Trican Well Services (Canada), BASF (Germany), Dow Chemical (U.S.), DuPont (U.S.), Clariant (Switzerland), Ashland (U.S.), Albemarle (U.S.), Akzo Nobel (The Netherlands), Solvay (Belgium) have also been profiled in the report.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

CI/CD is conceptually straightforward, yet often technically intricate to implement since it requires time and opportunities to develop intimate understanding on not only DevOps processes and operations, but likely product integrations with multiple platforms. This session intends to bridge the gap by offering an intense learning experience while witnessing the processes and operations to build from zero to a simple, yet functional CI/CD pipeline integrated with Jenkins, Github, Docker and Azure...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow. To be a disruptor and compete against new players, they need to gain insight into business data and innovate at scale. Cloud and cognitive technologies can help them leverage hidden data in SAP/ERP systems to fuel their businesses to accelerate digital transformation success.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.
