Progress in Green Shale Gas Technologies: ecorpStim Research and Development Consortium Improves Cost Efficiency of Non-Flammable Propane (NFP) Stimulation Technology

Monday, 28th July 2014

eCORP Stimulation Technologies, LLC (ecorpStim) is pleased to announce advances expected to further improve the cost effectiveness of ecorpStim’s non-water, non-chemical Non-Flammable Propane (NFP) stimulation technology, which is offered by the Company along with ecorpStim’s proprietary Pure Propane Stimulation (PPS) stimulation technology. Both technologies eliminate the large quantities of water and chemical additives typically used in today’s hydraulic fracturing. With NFP, efforts are proceeding to dramatically reduce the cost of ecorpStim’s non-flammable stimulation fluid, Heptafluoropropane (HFP). HFP is a non-flammable, […]
