In slickwater fracturing operations the selection of a proppant with poor transport characteristics can result in reduced effective fracture heights and lengths, or require gels to be introduced into the frac fluid. Lower proppant conductivity means stimulation treatment sizes have to be increased to achieve desired production rates.
CARBOAIR high-transport, ultra-low-density, ceramic proppant technology has higher conductivity and lower proppant settlement comparable to sand, increasing reservoir coverage and contact quality. This promotes more efficient fracture designs that increase production and recovery, while reducing stimulation costs.
