Keep in mind, however, that a typical fracturing job uses upwards of five million gallons of fracturing fluid, so a small percentage amount may actually result in a great deal of chemical usage, no matter how diluted it may be. As one can imagine, the overall composition of fracturing fluids varies among companies and the drilling location. 0% by weight of total fluid As described in previous sections, the chemical additives are included in fracking fluids to tailor the fluids to the requirements of the specific geological situation.
