CARBO’s industry-leading production enhancement technologies were featured at the 2014 Society of Petroleum Engineers Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference, February 4-6, 2014, at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel and Convention Center in The Woodlands, TX.

CARBO highlighted KRYPTOSPHERE, an ultra-conductive, ultra-high strength proppant technology engineered to maximize and sustain hydrocarbon flow at high closure stresses for the life of the well. Developed in response to a request from a major operator in the Gulf of Mexico, KRYPTOSPHERE is able to deliver more than twice the baseline conductivity of bauxite-based, high-strength proppants at 20,000 psi closure stresses.

As the world’s leading production enhancement company, CARBO has developed a unique approach to design, build and optimize fractures. Our products and services enable customers to increase production and recovery while lowering total finding and development costs.
