How Electrical Reservoir Stimulation Minimizes Environmental Impact
Electrical Reservoir Stimulation is the next generation of sustainable permeability enhancement technology for the oil and gas industry.
Because this technology can be powered by 100% renewable energy, it offers an environmentally friendly solution to replace traditional hydraulic fracturing operations without impacting resource recovery rates.
Pre-treatment with Electrical Reservoir Stimulation reduces the rock’s breakdown pressure. This decreases the injection pressure needed to create fractures and reduces the potential for induced seismicity. With lower injection pressure, much less water is needed to fracture the rock. Up to 2,000 billion gallons of water could be saved by 2050 if 500,000 wells replace hydraulic fracturing with Electrical Reservoir Stimulation.
