PropNET proppant flowback control technology employs aggressive cleanup alternatives. This provides faster well turnaround (lower flowback costs) and reduced time to commercial production. Proppant pack cleanup is more effective, increasing your production rates through a more highly conductive flow path.
PropNET technology additives provide a unique, economical solution that prevents flowback from hydraulic fractures in any reservoir environment, helping to avoid damage to surface equipment and loss of near-wellbore conductivity caused by proppant flowback. Additives used in severe environments yield high proppant pack strength and conductivity.
Testing confirms that PropNET technology additives can significantly increase conductivity of base proppant at low closure stresses. The presence of fiber disrupts the close-order packing of the proppant, promoting higher porosity and permeability.
