revealed that it has successfully deployed an electric grid-powered fracturing operation for Cimarex Energy on several pads in the in the US.

The US-based said that it had started the work in November 2020 and has so finished nearly 340 stages across various wells using utility-powered electric frac pumps.

Halliburton claimed that the electric frac pumps showed consistent superior performance.

According to the oilfield services provider, grid-powered electric fracturing gives an alternative approach for recording the lowest emissions possible in comparison to turbines and also Tier 4 dual fuel engines.

Besides, grid-powered electric fracturing provides additional operational reliability and needs a lower capital outlay when compared to turbines, said Halliburton.

Michael DeShazer – Cimarex Energy Permian Business Unit Vice President said: “Cimarex has focused its infrastructure investment on creating operational efficiencies and reducing emissions including ownership of the electrical grid on our Culberson and acreage.

“These investments are enhanced by Halliburton’s grid-powered fracturing operation. We look forward to the continued development of this technology with Halliburton across Cimarex’s assets.”

Halliburton said that its electric-powered equipment is designed to use the maximum power potential from the grid. This enables the customer to get pumping performance of 30-40% more than what it is with conventional equipment.

Michael Segura – vice president of Production Enhancement for Halliburton said: “Electric fracturing aligns with our goal to provide the industry with lower-carbon intensive solutions and our commitment to a sustainable energy future.

“With Halliburton’s leading electric fracturing capabilities, coupled with an innovative operator like Cimarex, grid power can offer one of the most effective and capital efficient solutions for electric fracturing.”
