PROPPANT-DELIVERED FLOW ENHANCEMENT

FREE YOUR FRACTURE OF WATER & WATER-BASED FLUIDS

Neutral wettability. Virtually zero capillary forces

By altering the proppant pack surface to neutral wettability with RPM technology, you virtually eliminate capillary forces that prevent water and water-based fracturing fluids from becoming trapped, avoiding a reduction in hydrocarbon flow.

RPM technology

Watch to see how CARBO's RPM Technology - neutral wettability relative permeability modification technology-  increases production by preventing trapped water based fluids reducing pressure droppes leading to increased EUR. CARBO's RPM Technology can be added to any CARBO Proppant. 

Field proven to significantly increase production


Fractures built with proppant enhanced with RPM technology have been proven in field trials to deliver a significant increase in both oil and gas production, with a rapid payback on the investment in RPM technology.

The well enhanced with RPM technology:

  • Produced an incremental 15% after 1 year
  • First gas production nearly twice as fast as the untreated well
  • Delivered a 15% increase in overall production
  • Experienced an 80% increase in condensate production, indicating the potential effectiveness of RPM technology for combating condensate banking

Fracture Technologies
Hydraulic fracturing: Beyond conductivity

For 70 years proppant technology has primarily consisted of uncoated frack sands, resin-coated proppant and ceramic proppant. These three tiers of proppant have served, and continue to serve, as the workhorse for propping open hydraulic fractures and have allowed for the successful development of many otherwise uneconomic reservoirs.
