PropNET 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 additives provide a unique, economical solution that prevents flowback from hydraulic fractures in any reservoir environment. This technology helps 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 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.
