Prime PlusTM

Premium Resin Coated Sand with Stress Bond™ Technology

 

DESCRIPTION

Prime PlusTM proppants are advanced, curable resin coated sand available in 30/50 and 40/70 mesh sizes. Designed for use in the major basins of North America, Prime Plus proppants have a proven history of success in the field. Incorporating Hexion’s Stress BondTM technology, the proppant bonds in the fracture with closure stress, providing increased fracture flow capacity and proppant flowback control.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS

Fracture treatments:

  • At closure stress up to 83 MPa [12,000 psi]
  • At bottom-hole static temperatures from 71 - 232°C [160 - 450°F]
 TECHNICAL ADVANTAGES AND BENEFITS
  • High fracture flow capacity – improved post treatment well production
  • Lower fines generation/migration – high long-term fracture flow capacity 
  • Proppant flowback control – high production rates/reduced wellbore cleanouts 

TECHNICAL CONSIDERATIONS

  • Grain-to-grain contact must occur and closure stress must be applied during the cure period for proper bonding
  • Consolidation of curable product at bottom-hole static temperatures below 71°C [160°F] is achieved by use of our AcTivator™ low temperature consolidation aid
