OilPlus™ Proppants

Description

OilPlus Image

OilPlus™ proppants are an advanced curable resin coated fracturing sand available in 16/30, 20/40, 30/50, and 40/70 mesh sizes. OilPlus proppants are specifically designed for fracturing treatments in oil and liquid-rich reservoirs. Hexion’s unique resin coating system increases the relative permeability to oil in the proppant pack, resulting in higher oil production compared to all conventional proppant types. 

Typical Applications

Fracture treatments:     

At closure stress up to:

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

At bottom-hole static temperatures from 120 - 450°F [49 - 232°C]

Technical Advantages and Benefits

  • Optimized well production for oil and liquid-rich reservoirs
  • Increases the relative permeability to oil in the proppant pack
  • Proppant flowback control
  • Proppant fines reduction
  • Cyclic stress resistance
  • Minimizes proppant embedment
  • Reduces respirable silica dust exposure below PEL limits
