Offshore challenges

High performance flow, optimized well connectivity

Offshore developments call for increased investment compared with those on land. This creates extra pressure for operators to optimize production rates and recovery, and deliver maximum returns. CARBO technology helps operators solve offshore completion and production challenges, maintain and optimize well connectivity and safeguard valuable assets.


Increase offshore fracture conductivity

KRYPTOSPHERE LD ultra-conductive, low-density ceramic proppant technology

Engineered to maximize and sustain hydrocarbon flow rates for the life of an offshore well, KRYPTOSPHERE LD ultra-conductive, low-density ceramic proppant, KRYPTOSPHERE XT advanced, ultra-conductive, low-density ceramic proppant and KRYPTOSPHERE HD ultra-conductive, high-density ceramic proppant deliver a step change in performance. All deliver more flow space, more uniform flow paths, and more long-term conductivity for more production, increased EUR and superior IRR.


Protect offshore proppant pack integrity

FUSION proppant pack consolidation technology

FUSION proppant pack consolidation technology enables the creation of a bonded, high-integrity, proppant pack with or without closure stress; preventing proppant washout from the annulus and near-wellbore area, which can result in the loss of offshore well connectivity.

Key technologies: FUSION

Accurate offshore fracture evaluation

CARBONRT inert tracer technology

Verifying near-wellbore connectivity, proppant placement, and propped fracture height reduces uncertainty and provides measurements to optimize offshore completion, production and field development. CARBONRT inert tracer technology enables near-wellbore fracture measurements and evaluation to be performed at any time during the life of the well without the environmental, regulatory and safety risks of radioactive tracers.

Offshore asset protection

SCALEGUARD proppant-delivered scale-inhibiting technology

As well as facing higher development costs, offshore operators can experience scale formation that requires prevention treatment. To avoid complex and expensive treatments and workovers, a single application of SCALEGUARD proppant-delivered scale-inhibiting technology can be utilized to prevent scale formation throughout an offshore field’s production system—for the life of the well. SCALEGUARD technology maximizes offshore field production and reduces maintenance costs.
