    Boron in produced and flowback water can prevent or complicate reuse in future hydraulic fracturing jobs by over-crosslinking borate-guar based fluids. Boron exists in water as borate, a common cross-linker used to build viscosity in frac fluids. This system details the novel process of adding glucosamine to boron...

    The idea is to send a wave down the hole from surface – either hydraulically through the annulus mud column, or through the string mechanically. This wave would travel downhole with known speed, will be reflected at a reflector, and travel back. The travel time is measured and with travel speed the reflection depth...
