Glass Technology Services (GTS) has joined the eCORP Stimulation Technologies, LCC (ecorpStim) clean shale stimulation research and development consortium.
Scientists at GTS who have many years’ experience in novel uses of glass based materials will assist the consortium research team in evaluating and furthering developments in delivery of ecorpStim’s non-water, chemical-free stimulation technologies.
The addition of GTS to the ecorpStim research consortium is important to furthering ecorpStim’s goals of advancing proprietary concepts for the use of silica, the raw material with which glass is made, in the environmentally sustainable development of shale hydrocarbon production.
One such patent pending technology involves the novel combination of two components only – a stimulation fluid (heptafluoropropane) and a proppant (mesoporous silica) – both of which are approved in different forms of medical treatments.
ecorpStim’s proprietary Pure Propane Stimulation and Non-Flammable Propane Stimulation technologies are being developed to reduce the environmental impacts associated with shale development to being only clean and temporary use of the well site.
ecorpStim’s shale stimulation designs and operating practices constitute a revolutionary change for the industry.
