How Hydrofracking and Abandoned Well Grouting Work in Well Drilling
Hydrofracking, otherwise known as hydrofracturing, is a process used in well drilling and development. It involves injecting water under high pressure into bedrock via the well itself. Besides its use in water well drilling, hydrofracking benefits recovery rates in older wells with increasingly compromised recovery rates.
On the flip side, abandoned well grouting is the complete sealing of a well of borehole. We usually do this with a fluid mixture of cement and water, bentonite and water, or both. Whatever mixture we use in abandoned well grouting, it has to have a solid consistency.
Common reasons to utilize abandoned well grouting, include:
- A decommissioned or unusable well is a safety hazard
- The well has contaminated groundwater
- There is a decline in the aquifer pressure head
