"With the challenges of today's oil and gas pricing environment, completion engineers are seeking products that optimise production of hydrocarbons. According to published test data, InnoProp PLT outperforms all other resin-coated products designed for low temperature reservoirs, bonding without the use of an activator down to 70°F bottom hole static temperature. It significantly reduces proppant flowback and provides increased conductivity, which enhances hydrocarbon recovery. Furthermore, InnoProp PLT has the ability to re-bond, helping ensure continued performance under cyclic stress," said Don Weinheimer, Vice President and General Manager of U.S. Silica's oil and gas division.
"The key to producing a quality resin-coated proppant begins with its substrate. Like all InnoProp proppants, InnoProp PLT utilises our premium U.S. Silica white sand, which ensures quality and consistency in every shipment. Our formaldehyde free, proprietary formula was developed in house by our team of scientists and engineers. This technical team is available to work with completion engineers on fracture treatment design to provide assistance on proppant selection," noted Weinheimer.
InnoProp PLT is available in multiple mesh sizes and is compatible with all current fluid systems.
