- The partial monolayer provided by the proppant results in very high fracture conductivity which can lead to improved production.
- The low density of the proppant makes it easy to place with low viscosity fluids while providing uniform distribution.
- MonoProp proppant deforms and maintains a conductive path while conventional proppants tend to crush and produce fines when exposed to closure stress.
- The high performance polymer alloy that constitutes MonoProp proppant is resistant to diagenesis, eliminating geochemical reactions and deposits, providing long term conductivity.
- Proppant flowback is minimized due to trapping of the proppant particles by the closing fracture. In addition, less proppant material is pumped compared to a typical treatment.
