Resin Coated Proppants
HIGH PERFORMANCE. PEACE OF MIND.
AMMAT Technology recognizes that not all reservoirs are the same and that they often vary in depth and composition. For this reason, we’re committed to producing a wide variety of proppants that meet your specific needs. We understand the competitive nature of the oil and gas exploration industry and are continually providing new products to lower operating costs.
Controlling proppant and formation fine flowback continues to be one of the most effective ways to lower costs. Approximately 10 to 15 percent of wells experience proppant flowback within the first two years of operation, resulting in decreased efficiency and costly mitigation. Our resin-coated sands are specifically engineered to control flowback, resulting in high performance and peace of mind.
BENEFITS OF RESIN COATED SAND
Our resin coated fracking proppants are tempered sand, curable sand and ceramic man-made sand that are developed to meet a demanding set of specifications. The sands are coated under strict quality-control conditions and are produced to maintain least crush and high conductivity while facilitating strong production. Given the unique nature of shale reservoirs, certain sands perform better under various conditions. In order to prevent flowback before it begins, it’s important for companies to employ measures that are specifically tailored to their site. We offer a diverse portfolio of the resin-coated sands that vary in strength, weight, conductivity and cost.
While frac sand has long been praised for its abundance and affordability, ceramic proppants are being recognized for their ability to provide solutions in more demanding drilling settings, thus offsetting the increased cost with higher production. Ceramic sands are known for their crush strength, which is higher than traditional frac sands, allowing access to high-pressure wells and much deeper formations. They also boast improved conductivity, which eases flow throughout the well. Because ceramic sands are man-made, they can be engineered to meet specific needs, including changes in weight, density and thermal and chemical stability.
