INCREASE EFFECTIVE FRACTURE LENGTH & FRACTURE HEIGHT TO IMPROVE RESERVOIR CONTACT
CARBO has engineered CARBOAIR technology to have exceptional transport characteristics and significantly more volume per pound. This results in an increased propped fracture height and length to maximize reservoir coverage and contact.
Watch this video to see how CARBOAIR high-transport, ultra low-density ceramic proppant technology can increase your production.
CARBOAIR technology has exceptional transport characteristics that significantly provide more volume per pound. This results in an increased propped fracture height and length to maximize reservoir coverage and contact.
By alternating CARBOAIR technology with standard proppant within a frac stage using slickwater fluids, the technology can provide increased effective propped length as well as full productive zone coverage, leading to additional production and ultimate recovery.
CARBOAIR significantly lower density can be used to replace the same volume of sand proppant reducing the use of water & chemicals. Watch this short clip to see this technology at work.
Watch CARBO's FUSION proppant pack consolidation technology at work. With FUSION, you can now create a bonded, high integrity proppant pack without closure stress. Providing well integrity critical to inject and produce at ultra-high rates required to improve well economics and increase EUR.
The use of slickwater fluid systems in hydraulic fracture design has grown tremendously in recent years relative to "conventional" linear gel or cross-linked fluid systems. The primary drivers for this change in design methodology are cost, proppant pack damage minimization, fracture complexity and environmental footprint. The efficiency of proppant placement in the fracture using slickwater systems remains a subject of ongoing research none-the-less.
