With the Ascent™ high-side fracturing service, Baker Hughes applies advanced modelling, specialized pumping techniques and leverages strong, ultra-lightweight proppant technologies to create and maintain open fractures above the lateral wellbore that cannot be effectively propped through conventional low viscosity fluid treatments.

Features and Benefits
• Better proppant distribution across the fracture network
• Increases conductive fracture area
• Places proppant above the lateral
• Reduces BOE costs by utilizing more of the reservoir’s conductive potential
• Slows decline rates
• Strong, ultra-lightweight proppant technology
• Generates highly conductive fractures
• Expands propped fracture area on the high side of the fracture
• Delivers optimized, effectively placed stages
• Improves reservoir recovery rates
• Improves fluid and proppant efficiency
• Reduces multistage stimulation times
• Minimizes operational costs and health, safety and environment (HSE) footprint
• High-side proppant placement in:
• Unconventional plays
• Conventional reservoirs
