Abstract
In cooperation with sun oil company, the Bureau of Mines investigated the application of chemical explosive fracturing for stimulating natural gas recovery. Two tests conducted in the Shallow Buzzard Sand Formation in Osage County, Oklahoma, demonstrated that desensitized nitroglycerin can be safely loaded, displaced, and detonated in hydraulically induced fractures both in open-hole intervals and through casing perforations.
