Foam Based Hydraulic Fracturing Fluids for Shale Gas Market Size will Observe Substantial Growth by 2025

Global energy resources are depleting at an alarming rate. Conversely, energy requirements of developing economies are increasing at a rapid pace. Global focus on energy replenishment has shifted toward natural gas which is an environmentally friendly energy resource and also available in abundance. Natural gas extraction through hydraulic fracturing is economically viable as well as a popular technology around the globe. The relative permeability of shale rocks is extremely low; hence it produces very less volume of natural gas. Special extraction technology such as hydraulic fracturing is re
