HOUSTON -- CARBO has introduced CARBONRT, a non-radioactive and environmentally responsible proppant that incorporates a taggant allowing downhole, near-wellbore detection of ceramic proppant.

CARBONRT assists in determining fracture propagation and geometry that is designed to optimize stimulation effectiveness, and maximize productive capacity.

“CARBONRT offers the E&P industry a traceable proppant without the half-life and potential environmental hazards involved with radioactive tracers,” said Gary Kolstad, CARBO’s president and CEO. “This provides flexibility to conduct proppant detection analysis with standard logging tools for an indefinite period of time.”
