PR6000™

Precured Resin Coated Sand

DESCRIPTION

PR6000TM proppants are precured resin coated sand available in 20/40 and 30/50 mesh sizes.  Reddish-brown in color, PR6000 proppants utilize a proven resin technology applied to a special graded high quality fracturing sand.  The result of this process is an economical intermediate strength proppant.

 

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS

Fracture treatments:

At closure stress up to 8,000 psi [55MPa] 
  • At bottom-hole static temperatures from 70 - 375°F [21 - 190°C]
 TECHNICAL ADVANTAGES AND BENEFITS
  • Resin capsule minimizes proppant fines migration
  • Proven, completely cured resin
  • Frac fluid friendly
  • High performance alternative to uncoated sand
  • Economic alternative to low-density ceramic proppants

TECHNICAL CONSIDERATIONS

  • Precured resin coated proppants are not designed to prevent flowback of proppants after fracturing; however, they provide better flowback control than uncoated proppants. Use curable resin coated proppants to prevent flowback.
