PROTECT YOUR WELL & PRODUCTION WHILE REDUCING COSTS
The GUARD solution is developed by using ceramic proppant with engineered porosity that is infused with production chemicals. Each treatment incorporating GUARD can be designed to last for the effective life of the well. Our technologies significantly reduce production maintenance requirements and costs, avoid workovers and eliminate the potential for catastrophic production system failures.
Watch this video to see how SCALEGUARD technology is placed throughout the entire fracture as part of the standard fracturing process, providing long term protection after just one application.
Our unique GUARD technology outperforms other production assurance treatments which can be inefficient, expensive and required to be repeated due to their short effective periods.
This paper describes the development and testing of a new proppant designed to exhibit a neutrally wet surface. The modified surface does not have a preferential affinity for oil, gas, or water and therefore will not promote the preferential entrapment of any phase within the proppant pack.
Halite scale is a wide spread problem throughout several basins in the United States. This scale can form in surface equipment, downhole tubulars as well as affecting production. Traditional remediation of halite can be accomplished by dissolving the scale in fresh water as well as recycled water.
With production performance varying from one well to another on the same pad, and even from one stage to another along a single lateral, optimizing stimulation designs from the toe to the heel can have measurable impacts on a well's completion efficiency, economic performance, and ultimate recovery potential.

The end game for operators in horizontal resource plays is simple: Maximize the stimulated reservoir volume and keep induced fractures propped open so hydrocarbons keep flowing. Accomplishing those objectives, says Don Conkle, vice president of marketing and sales at CARBO, is leading the industry to pump more proppant per well. The American Oil & Gas Reporter, February 2018
