Unconventional reservoir challenges

A tailored approach to every well

CARBO has developed a portfolio of fracture technologies and services that help E&P operators to design, build and optimize the frac.
Our technologies and services have a proven track record of enabling clients operating in unconventional reservoirs, to design completion strategies and build fractures that optimize production efficiently and maximize returns. In addition, with the application of proppant-delivered production assurance technology, clients avoid deferred production, as well as expensive workovers and interventions.

Advanced technology for unconventional plays

CARBOAIR high-transport, ultra low-density ceramic proppant technology
Our portfolio of fracture technologies and high performance proppant deliver a step change in conductivity, well productivity and economic performance. Our proppant enables each fracture to be built with the optimal balance of contact and conductivity which is critical to optimize production and economic performance for the life of the well.

KRYPTOSPHERE ultra-conductive ceramic proppant technology is engineered to maximize and sustain hydrocarbon flow rates for the life of the well. This step-change technology is available as KRYPTOSPHERE LD ultra-conductive, low-density and KRYPTOSPHERE HD ultra-conductive, high-density ceramic proppant to suit your well conditions and field economics.

In lower closure stress environments, CARBOAIR high-transport, ultra-low density ceramic proppant delivers significant performance improvement compared to sand completions, which results in increased well productivity, higher EUR and improved ROI.


Protect proppant pack integrity

FUSION proppant pack consolidation technology
FUSION proppant pack consolidation technology creates a bonded, high integrity, proppant pack without closure stress. It provides vital integrity in unconventional wells, allowing operators to inject and produce at ultra-high rates to achieve improved well productivity and recovery.

Key technologies: FUSION

The longest lasting scale inhibition treatment

SCALEGUARD proppant-delivered scale-inhibiting technology
A single, highly-cost effective application of SCALEGUARD proppant-delivered scale-inhibiting technology can prevent scale formation throughout the entire production system—for the life of an unconventional well.

Key technologies: SCALEGUARD

Fracture intelligence for unconventional plays

CARBONRT inert racer technology

Using CARBONRT inert tracer technology, operators can directly measure near-wellbore propped fracture height and width, to optimize completion designs and perforation cluster spacing, as well as improve fracture simulation and mechanical earth model accuracy. CARBONRT technology can be utilized in sand or ceramic completed wells, and to evaluate gravel pack placement and integrity.


Achieve the optimal approach for your well faster

FRACPRO fracture design and analysis software

STRATAGEN fracture consulting services helps operators define and achieve an optimal completion and fracture strategy for every unconventional well. STRATAGEN consulting services provide fracture design and evaluation, well performance analysis and onsite supervision and advisory services designed to enhance production, maintain and increase ultimate recovery and optimize field development.
Our WELLWORX data-driven analysis provides operators with an index of key completion success indicators to enable accelerated optimization of completion and fracture design. Consequently, operators can identify underperforming wells and optimize field development strategy faster in order to efficiently exploit the full potential of the reservoir. Operators in the Marcellus, Bakken, and Eagle Ford have successfully deployed our innovative WELLWORX well performance analysis service to identify optimal completion and stimulation treatment designs, leading to improved production and economic performance.
Our FRACPRO software portfolio provides unparalleled fracture design, analysis and monitoring capabilities that enable the engineering and execution of fracture designs to optimize production, recovery and economic performance.
