In their continued efforts to improve completion efficiencies while addressing ESG issues (including emissions) and intrusive governmental oversight, operators today are embracing electrically powered hydraulic fracturing (e-frac) solutions. These systems reduce fuel costs, cut emissions and improved operational reliability. The latter point includes much-longer service life for various pressure pumping components. This e-book contains a selection of articles that exemplify and discuss this significant operational trend.

The upstream industry initially examined oilfield electrification to obtain greater operational efficiencies. But now, it is also a means to reduce emissions. Accordingly, the industry has developed new methods that include electrification of various drilling functions and onshore and offshore production, as well as better electric motors for frac pumps, electrification of subsea systems and electro-optical technology for CT well interventions. This e-book contains recent technical articles that represent these technologies, as well as others.
