  • High Performance Proppants In Shale Gas Fracturing Process

Hydraulic fracturing proppants

Shale gas is expected to increase USA fuel production which triggers the development of new proppants The proppant usually sand or support agent is used in the hydraulic fracturing process (fracking) in the production of In this class there are proppants of high control of sphericity uniform size and high resistance to crushing

What is Hydraulic Fracturing?

Hydraulic Fracturing is a process used to fracture a tight and low permeable formation of rocks within the surface of earth by injecting specially blended fluid also called as 'Fracking Fluid' into the wellbore at very high pressure Hydraulic Fracturing is carried out so as to enhance oil or gas production
