Microproppants Deliver Macro Returns 

Published Proof

Several research studies have demonstrated Deeprop® 1000’s potential to enhance the permeability of microfractures and vastly improve production in field applications in the Barnett and the liquids-rich Woodford formation located in the South-Central Oklahoma Oil Province (SCOOP).1, 2 An article in the Journal of Petroleum Technology (JPT) caught the attention of the industry.3 Further studies in 2018 clearly showed the benefits of using a smaller proppant like Deeprop® 1000 to increase the propped area of an induced fracture.4-6 Work by Dharmendra, Gonzales, and Ghassemi at the University of Oklahoma indicates that an additional 1,500 square meters (16,000 square feet) of fracture area in the Eagleford and 818 square meters (8,880 square feet) in the Utica can be propped with Deeprop® 1000 compared to 100-mesh sand (Figures 3 and 4).5
