HIGH-TRANSPORT PROPPANT

INCREASE EFFECTIVE FRACTURE LENGTH & FRACTURE HEIGHT TO IMPROVE RESERVOIR CONTACT

Higher proppant transport for improved 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.

Alternating stages of CARBOAIR and conventional proppant


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.

Low Density Proppant in Slickwater Applications Improves Reservoir Contact and Fracture Complexity - A Permian Basin Case History

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. Learn More
