XRT Gold H: Well Suited for Bakken Horizontals
Hexion has introduced a new proppant designed specifically for horizontal wells. XRT Gold H™ proppants offer high fracture flow capacity, increased bond strength, and excellent flowback control for this type of well.

Case History:
Increasing Bakken Oil Production
At a recent Bakken technology conference, several operators with large land positions in the Williston Basin discussed the successful, cost effective application of curable resin coated proppant technology. A comparative study of 38 wells in the Murphy Creek Field, shows how proppant selection affects both IP (Initial Production) and 90 day cumulative oil production.
