KRYPTOSPHERE HD ultra-conductive, high-density ceramic proppant

KRYPTOSPHERE HD ultra-conductive, high-density ceramic proppant technology has been specifically engineered for high closure stress and risk environments, including ultra deepwater regions such as the Gulf of Mexico.


  • Precision-engineered, strong, durable, round, single-mesh-sized and smooth proppant grains
  • Extraordinary strength and durability. Maintains higher conductivity and flow for the life of the well
  • Uniform size and shape for optimal proppant packing. Creates a frac with more space for hydrocarbon flow


  • Excellent roundness, sphericity and smoothness produces significantly less erosion to equipment during pumping
  • Reduces flow path tortuosity which reduces non-Darcy impacts and improve overall conductivity
  • Improved proppant transport and higher propped volume compared to intermediate-density proppant

As the only proppant suitable for ultra-high closure stress environments, KRYPTOSPHERE HD provides a step-change in conductivity, compressive strength and durability: significantly outperforming any other proppant available.

Attain higher flow rates at the highest closure stresses to increase recovery and return on investment, thereby lowering finding and development costs per barrel of oil equivalent.

A step-change in performance

A step-change in performance KRYPTOSPHERE HD technology has a significantly higher baseline conductivity at stresses above 12,000 psi compared to typical bauxite-based high-strength proppant.

Lower beta factor and pressure drop

The spherical, smooth and uniform size characteristics of KRYPTOSPHERE HD technology creates a frac with more uniform flow paths. The reduced flow path tortuosity minimizes the pressure drop due to non-Darcy flow effects across the fracture which further enhances overall conductivity, flow rates and ultimate recovery.
