Engineered fracturing fluids and high-performance chemistries.


Increasing stimulation effectiveness and improving the bottom line in any reservoir conditions.

Because no two wells are alike, it’s important to tailor your treatment design to the downhole environment. But conditions can also differ significantly from stage to stage within the same well – so you need frac technologies that are flexible, cost-effective and easy to adjust on the fly.

To help you optimize fracturing performance in any downhole conditions, NexTier offers a range of premium-quality fluid systems, friction reducers (FRs), diverter packages and specialized treatment products.

friction reducers

ReLease™ family of friction reducers

A high-performance FR solution to fine-tune slickwater fluid systems – to deliver exceptional performance for a wide range of water qualities and well conditions. Four distinct ReLease formulations provide greater control to customize the fluid system for each stage to:

  • Significantly reduce friction pressure in fresh water
  • Perform effectively in ultrahigh-salinity water with high total dissolved solids (TDS)
  • Provide excellent viscoelastic properties to improve proppant-carrying capabilities

Re-Con℠ frac-less restimulation

A less invasive approach to restore conductivity without the need to refracture – with a more economical alternative to costly, full-blown recompletions. This cost-effective solution enhances production without high-pressure fracturing, and it delivers the consistent performance your operation demands.

  • Each Re-Con treatment is uniquely formulated for the well and reservoir
  • Targets existing fractures, providing superior effectiveness to refracturing
  • Unique diverting process ensures a near-complete diversion across any size lateral

PureStim™ gelled fluid systems

Premium fluid systems that achieve optimum viscosity and proppant suspension in a wide range of water qualities, bottomhole temperatures and stimulation applications. PureStim systems use guar and cellulose derivatives and can be formulated with either dry or slurried gelling agents.

  • Linear formulation hydrates rapidly and performs well in high salinities
  • Guar-borate formulations provide crosslinking in high pH ranges and perform well in nitrogen-energized applications
  • Zirconate-crosslinker formulations deliver strong performance and offer exceptional flexibility in low pH ranges, in any produced-water environment

SandStay™ proppant-retaining agents

Innovative chemistry to control excessive proppant flowback, improve operational efficiency and reduce overall completion costs. Applied on the fly, using a standard liquid-additive pump, this treatment is effective across a broad range of downhole temperatures.

  • Cost-effective alternative to resin-coated proppant
  • Holds proppant in place and mitigates fines migration
  • On-the-fly application enables dynamic design changes
  • Compatible with all common fracture-fluid systems

ReDirect™ diverter packages

Engineered solution to isolate dominant perforations and fractures, which redirects fluid into understimulated sections of the target interval. Achieves higher stimulation effectiveness across the entire lateral, which increases stimulated reservoir volume.

  • Degrades as time and temperature increase
  • Enables effective stimulation of more perforations
  • Comprises four products, tailored for specific treatment objectives
