Supplier to disclose all chemicals

25 Apr, 2014

Baker Hughes, one of the biggest US suppliers, says it will disclose all the chemicals in its fracking fluid without protecting trade secrets.

Baker Hughes believes it is possible to disclose 100% of the chemical ingredients we use in hydraulic fracturing fluids without compromising our formulations – a balance that increases public trust while encouraging commercial innovation. Where accepted by our customers and relevant governmental authorities, Baker Hughes is implementing a new format that achieves this goal, providing complete lists of the products and chemical ingredients used.
