Atlas Sand

test is useful for comparing proppant crush resistance and overall strength under varying stresses. A proppant is exposed to varying stress levels and the amount of fines is calculated and compared to manufacturer specifications. Studies by Coulter & Wells (e.g. SPE JPT, June 1972, pp. 643-650) have demonstrated that as little as 5% added fines

Proppants - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

The higher the crush resistance is, the better the proppants are. Density is important for proppant selection, as it affects proppant transport. Proppant density comes with both bulk density and absolute density. The difference between the bulk and absolute densities results from the void spaces present in proppant packs. Typical porosity ...

Proppant Crush Test: A New Approach - OnePetro

The new proppant crush test approach was used to compare the strength of 40/70 sand, 40/70 resin coated sand, 30/50 sand, and 30/50 resin-coated sand. The failure stresses for the above proppants were determined as a function of proppant concentration.

Fairmount Santrol Propel SSP® : : Home

Proppant Transport Technology. Propel SSP ® proppant transport technology is a step change in the decades-old challenge of evenly distributing proppant throughout the full length of a created hydraulic fracture. The technology props open the fracture from wellbore to tip, maximizing the fracture surface area to increase hydrocarbon production.

How to Use and Misuse Proppant Crush Tests -- Exposing the ...

Crush data are reasonably inexpensive to obtain, and are readily available for most proppants. Crush testing remains a useful tool in some manufacturing and quality control applications. However, proppant crush results have the potential to be extremely misleading and are widely misunderstood. The following sections will address the primary ...

Frac Sand and Proppant Size and Shape - HORIBA

Frac Sand and Proppant Applications. ... Among other tests, the standards demand the test of size, shape and crush resistance. Size. The size range of the proppant is very important. Typical proppant sizes are generally between 8 and 140 mesh (106 µm - 2.36 mm), for example 16-30 mesh (600 µm – 1180 µm), 20-40 mesh (420 µm - 840 µm), 30 ...

Oct 13, 2015 · No matter the type, proppant is designed to remain in place over the life of a well. The ideal proppant is flowable to allow it to move deep into the fissures and strong enough to keep the fissures propped open without fracturing the grain. Proppant is often specified by its strength, known as crush resistance or crush strength.

Crushing characteristics of four different proppants and ...

The proppants were tested in a modified crush test. The grain shape, grain breakage pattern, stress-strain response of the proppant pack, and the change in particle-size distribution were measured. The measurements were then used to empirically estimate and compare the proppant pack permeability and fracture conductivity of different proppants.

Proppant is a treated sand or engineered ceramic material, which is used to keep fractures propped open after the fracturing treatment. Hence, it is called propping agent. Different types of proppants have different mechanical strengths to withstand high closure pressures ranging from 6,000 psi to 20,000 psi.

Hydraulic fracturing proppants - Wikipedia

A proppant is a solid material, typically sand, treated sand or man-made ceramic materials, designed to keep an induced hydraulic fracture open, during or following a fracturing treatment. It is added to a fracking fluid which may vary in composition depending on the type of fracturing used, and can be gel, foam or slickwater–based. In addition, there may be unconventional fracking fluids.
