Yukon Black™ Proppants


Yukon Black Image

Yukon Black™ proppants are an innovative curable resin coated fracturing sand available in 16/30 and 20/40 mesh sizes. The Yukon Black resin system is designed specifically for low temperature reservoirs and is applied to high quality frac sand for superior performance. Incorporating Hexion’s newest Stress Bond™ resin technology, the proppant bonds in the fracture with closure stress, providing high conductivity and proppant flowback control.

Typical Applications

Fracture treatments:    

  • At closure stress up to 55 MPa [8,000 psi]  
  • At bottom-hole static temperatures from 24 - 71°C [75 - 160°F]
  • Where flowback control is necessary in low temperature reservoirs

Technical Advantages and Benefits

  • Low temperature bonding down to 24°C [75°F] bottom-hole static temperature without the use of a low temperature consolidation aid
  • Reduces proppant fines generation and migration
  • Helps prevent proppant flowback
  • Stress Bond technology helps prevent wellbore consolidation
  • Frac fluid and beaker friendly
