H 2 O Taking the Hydro out of Hydraulic Fracturing

 · Gasenergized fracturing has a significant advantage over traditional waterbased methods: it requires less proppant, which saves money, and it can double oil and gas recovery from a well. Praxair, a supplier of industrial gases based in Danbury, Conn., has developed a system that relies on a different liquefied gas. Its DryFrac technology relies on liquid carbon dioxide that is mixed with ...
