Full Description
Where Does Conductivity Come From?
A Look at the Physical Properties of Proppants That Drive Conductivity
 
 
There are many different types of proppants on the market, and they each have different physical properties.  This presentation will examine their physical properties and the effects that each has on conductivity.  Since the conductivity of the created propped fracture is the only thing the operator is left with following a fracture treatment, it is an oft-scrutinized topic.  Numerous publications have discussed the direct correlation between conductivity and well productivity.  It is therefore very important that the completions engineer understand what properties to look for in a proppant that will maximize conductivity and thus well productivity.
