Technologies featured at HFTC 2017:

CARBOAIR technology

Improve your reservoir contact and well productivity

CARBOAIR high transport, ultra low-density ceramic proppant technology carries farther into the fracture which increases effective propped fracture height and lengths.

The increased reservoir contact with high long-term fracture conductivity improves production and EUR while lowering fracturing costs.

Lower F&D costs, increase recovery measurements

KRYPTOSPHERE LD ultra-conductive, low-density ceramic proppant technology significantly exceeds the conductivity, compressive strength and durability of existing low-density proppant.

The technology can outperform IDC and bauxite proppant, and allows you to cost-effectively attain higher flow rates and increase propped fracture volumes to maximize ROI.

KRYPTOSPHERE HD ultra-conductive technology

Increase deepwater production and recovery

KRYPTOSPHERE HD ultra-conductive, high-density ceramic proppant delivers significantly higher baseline conductivity than bauxite-based high‑density proppant.

The technology enables you to attain higher flow rates and safeguards fracture integrity in high closure stress deepwater wells.

SCALEGUARD technology

Low cost scale prevention for the life of the well

SCALEGUARD proppant-delivered scale-inhibiting technology enables you to assure long-term production with a single cost-effective treatment during fracturing operations and significantly reduces your LOE costs.

SCALEGUARD technology has been field-proven to maintain inhibitor levels above the minimum inhibitor concentration for 500+ days, avoiding remediation costs.

CARBONRT technology

Optimize production and completion efficiency with precise near-wellbore measurements

CARBONRT inert tracer technology enables you to precisely measure nearwellbore fracture height and width, and verify propped fracture location and diversion operations.

These measurements improve your fracture modeling and help you optimize your completion strategy and improve fracturing efficiency.
