New SPE Paper on Proppant Selection in Shale Formations

Hexion* presented our latest technical paper, SPE 135502, at the SPE ATCE in Florence, Italy, September 20, 2010. “Proppant Selection and Its Effect on the Results of Fracturing Treatments Performed in Shale Formations” documents extensive laboratory tests and field studies comparing downhole proppant performance in three North American shale plays.

Hexion’s curable resin coated proppant technology outperforms uncoated and precured proppants in a variety of shale fracturing applications. If you were unable to attend the SPE ATCE in Florence, you will have several opportunities to see presentations and webinars this fall on this topic.
