Autris Develops ‘Green’ Nitrogen Fracking Solution

Autris’ wholly owned subsidiary Nitroheat has designed a dual-action mega pressure nitrogen solution for fracking and secondary oil recovery operations.

The patent-pending solution — which the company says is an environmentally clean way to remove toxic materials, chemicals and waste created during the fracking process — will be marketed under the product name MaxFrack-N2.

The MaxFrack-N2-100 is a high-powered self-contained unit that can be operated in remote sites producing high volume, high-pressure nitrogen on demand. The system is capable of producing 170,000 liters per hour of 99 percent pure nitrogen at pressures up to 5000psi. The unit is supplied on a shipping container platform and includes all equipment necessary to generate the high quality nitrogen on demand making.

Nitroheat’s patent pending technology will address both environmental and logistical challenges of drilling operators, the company says. The MaxFrack-N2 will allow operators to use nitrogen as an alternative to water, thereby minimizing the environmental impact. In many shale environments, nitrogen-assisted processes have proven to be more effective with lower costs than water treatments.

Fracking companies may encounter intense competition for water, as 38 percent of the world’s shale resources are either under extremely high water stress or facing arid conditions, according to a 2014 report by the World Resources Institute.

One thought on “Autris Develops ‘Green’ Nitrogen Fracking Solution

  1. While I don’t see this technology being used on every hydraulic fracturing drilling site in the United States, it doesn’t seem that outrageous to imagine replacing water with nitrogen in those areas with limited access to fresh water supplies such as California and Texas.
