With a nod toward the future of fracturing operations, NOV has launched its new Ideal electric frac fleet, which dramatically reduces greenhouse gases and makes a substantial impact on total cost of ownership for operators. The Ideal eFrac fleet provides an environmentally and socially responsible fracturing option that minimizes sound and carbon emissions, offers a clean and simple rig up, and significantly increases power density while maintaining the redundancy that efficient frac operations require.

As fracturing operations have shifted to extended pumping operations throughout the day, conventional systems must work much harder, resulting in wear and tear on equipment and increased fuel consumption. While the systems have adapted over the years to comply with environmental, social, and corporate governance and to improve functionality, these conventional fracturing systems have exhausted all potential efficiency gains. That’s where Ideal eFrac fleet provides its greatest value.

Designed with ESG compliance in mind, the Ideal eFrac system makes an environmental impact through cleaner, more efficient equipment that still performs to expectations. When compared to conventional operations, the Ideal system reduces fuel costs by as much as 89% with wellhead natural gas-powered turbines and lowers CO2 emissions by up to 74% compared to Tier 4 fleets that flare gas.

Ideal eFrac fleet relies on electric equipment and simplified drive trains to get the job done. With a much smaller footprint, the fleet features 5,000-hp, electric-driven pumps and fewer pump bores to service, further eliminating costs related to engines and transmissions. A reduced fleet size also means less equipment to transport, resulting in up to 42% less roadway traffic and further reducing carbon emissions.

Ideal eFrac fleet is a comprehensive, streamlined solution that gives operators an upper hand in a fast-changing pressure pumping industry. By reducing carbon emissions, decreasing sound pressure, and minimizing trucking requirements related to equipment needs, we’re helping those same operators usher in the next generation of performance while delivering responsible, cost-effective fracturing operations.
