Business is booming for CARBO Ceramics, which helps energy companies enhance the productivity and financial performance of new and existing oil and gas wells around the globe. Currently demand for its ceramic proppants, which are widely used in fracturing, exceeds its capacity domestically, and the company is expanding its manufacturing facilities to keep up.
Gary Kolstad, president and CEO of CARBO Ceramics, joined the company in June 2006 and much company growth has occurred on his watch. Gary has more than 20 years’ experience in the oilfield service industry, mostly recently with Schlumberger Oilfield Services, and holds a degree in petroleum engineering from the Montana School of Mineral Science & Technology. He recently spoke with OGFJ Editor Don Stowers.
