Using biocides during fracturing is a critical prevention step. If the water used during a frac is contaminated with bacteria, the contamination can spread throughout the formation. This contamination creates added expenses for the operator for many years down the road.

With Greenwell’s EPA-registered biocide line, customers minimize bacteria-related problems, thereby reducing chemical spending over the life of the wells.

Greenwell offers a dry biocide in a water-soluble bag. Compared to liquid biocides, our dry biocide is easier to handle and reduces the chance of exposure to employees. Liquid options are also available for customers that prefer traditional biocides.
