Low density ceramic advantages

Low-density proppant for increased contact and conductivity

The CARBO proppant portfolio includes high quality, high performance low-density ceramic (LDC) proppant engineered to deliver both high conductivity and high contact for exceptional production and economic performance in typical reservoir stress conditions (5,000ft to 12,000ft).

Compared to market leading intermediate density ceramic (IDC) proppant, our high performance LDC requires 20% less proppant to create the same reservoir contact and delivers higher conductivity, which reduces treatment cost and provides a lower F&D cost per BOE.

CARBO high performance LDC also enables operators to achieve higher production compared to their offset sand well with no increase in AFE. This means they can change from a sand-based contact-driven strategy to optimal fracture designs based on a high contact, high conductivity strategy.
