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.

Now, you can eliminate additives, including guar, crosslinkers, and friction reducers for increased hydraulic fracturing efficiency using a simplified fluid system. Once Propel SSP technology—comprising the polymer coating wrapped around the proppant—is in the fracture, a conventional breaker acts on the polymer, leaving the proppant in place.
