HOUSTON, Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — ecorpStim (eCORP Stimulation Technologies, LLC), a subsidiary of eCORP International, LLC, project developer and energy services supplier, is pleased to present in video Pure Propane Stimulation and the Company’s most recent technological innovation: Non-Flammable Propane (NFP) Stimulation.
Eliminating the use of water and of all chemical additives, ecorpStim’s technology offers a safe, clean, efficient and operational alternative to hydraulic fracturing.
Developed in 2013 by ecorpStim R&D team in Houston, Texas, non-flammable propane stimulation (NFP Stimulation) consists of using a fluorinated form of propane (heptafluoropropane) as a stimulation fluid. This option is expected to be operational and deployed in field demonstrations by the end of 2014.
This substance, also used as a propellant for asthma inhalers, removes the risk of flammability associated with regular propane, and presents no risk to human health.
