18 | August 2018 | HYDRAULIC FRACTURING: KEY PLAYERS In addition, DustShield treated sand is northern white fracturing sand with dust suppression technology and an operationally transparent engineering control that reduces worker exposure to respirable crystalline silica, according to the company. Cudd Energy Services Cudd Energy Services (CES) operates in more than 60 global markets, including the major shales across North America. The company provides customized completion, production and well intervention ser- vices for onshore and offshore operations includ- ing stimulation, coiled tubing (CT) and e-coil, coil drilling technologies, hydraulic workover, slickline and braided line, electric line, industrial nitrogen, cementing water management, well control and special services. CES provides a variety of stimulation services including hydraulic fracturing and acidizing in con- ventional and unconventional oil and gas reservoirs. The company's hydraulic fracturing services range from single-stage fractures to complex multistage, horizontal fractures. Each operation includes prejob analysis of the well, real-time monitoring (with the FracLink application) and a reporting system at the end of the job to meet state reporting requirements. The company's FracLink software package con- tains four fully integrated modules for fracture design, fracture analysis, economic optimization and reser- voir performance, according to the company's website. CES applications of hydraulic fracturing stim- ulation treatments include slick water, linear gel, crosslinked gel, CO 2 foam and nitrogen foam. The company designs custom-blended acidizing treat - ments to increase well productivity and assist in well cleanout applications. Acidizing applications include matrix, CT and remedial. In addition, CES offers additives and equipment that are custom-engineered for stimulations services. The company's stimulation equipment fleet includes about 935,000 hhp. Individual units can deliver up to 2,250 hhp and are capable of operating pressures up to 13,250 psi.
