Black Ultra™ Proppants

Description

Black Ultra™ proppants are available in 16/30, 20/40, 30/50 and 40/70 mesh sizes. These resin coated proppants utilize an advanced resin system, which bonds at low temperatures without the use of a consolidation aid for proppant flowback control.

Typical Applications

Fracture treatments:   

At closure stress up to:

  • 8,000 psi [55 MPa] (16/30 and 20/40)
  • 10,000 psi [69 MPa] (30/50 and 40/70)

At bottom-hole static temperatures* from:

  • 90 - 450°F [32 - 232°C]

*Does not require low temperature consolidation aid down to recommended temperatures.

Technical Advantages and Benefits

  • Proppant flowback control in low temperature reservoirs without a consolidation aid
  • High conductivity
  • Proppant fines reduction
  • Cyclic stress resistance
  • Minimizes proppant embedment
  • Reduces respirable silica dust exposure below PEL limits
