The resin coated sand keeps the fissure from collapsing on release of the hydraulic pressure Proppants coated with SBHPP resins continually broaden the oil gas boundaries We are developing new products that optimize hydraulic fracturing

Proppants an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The magnetized material proppant bridges retard and ultimately prevent the flowback of proppant and formation solids but still allow the production of oil and gas through the fracture at sufficiently high rates Clark et al 2000 In a similar way fibrous bundles placed with the proppant may act in a fracture as a flowback preventer Nguyen and Schreiner 1999

Hydraulic fracturing proppants Wikipedia

A proppant is a solid material typically sand treated sand or man made ceramic materials designed to keep an induced hydraulic fracture open during or following a fracturing treatment It is added to a fracking fluid which may vary in composition depending on the type of fracturing used and can be gel foam or slickwater–based In addition there may be unconventional fracking fluids

Ceramic challenge why synthetic proppants have it tough

In terms of market split frac sand remained the most popular choice of proppant owing to its low cost in comparison to ceramic proppants as well as its widespread availability In 2014 frac sand accounted for around 80 85 of the market share by volume with ceramic proppants and resin coated versions taking 10
