The right proppant is integral to maximising oil and gas reservoirs’ conductive pathways. In the long term a proppant that satisfies the criteria of ISO13503-2 will increase well production, resulting in greater productivity value.
Lab and Field’s dedicated Proppant Testing Laboratory is fully equipped to perform the specialised testing required to satisfy Australian and international standards for oil and gas industries.
The right proppant is determined against ISO standards for:
- Particle size distribution
- Sphericity and roundness
- Crush resistance
- Apparent density
- Bulk density
- Laboratory trial mixes
- Acid solubility
