A New Era in Proppant Research and Development
Fairmount Santrol’s increasing R&D investment is ensuring continuous product improvement.
The Fairmount Santrol Technology Center in Sugar Land, Texas, and the Innovation Center in Ottawa, Illinois, are working together to create superior, environmentally responsible proppant technology.
The Sugar Land laboratory, relocated from the original center in Fresno, Texas, is expanding the comprehensive proppant portfolio for hydraulic fracturing. Ph.D.s, engineers, and research associates are working with an impressive collection of sophisticated laboratory equipment to enhance resin-coated proppant performance for increased reservoir conductivity, proppant flowback prevention, and maximized hydrocarbon production.
