HOUSTON – Oxane Materials is now offering OxThor, a conductive, stronger, lighter proppant focused on high-value, technologically demanding deepwater applications.
Reservoir quantities of OxThor are expected to be produced in 2014. Conversations regarding field trials are under way with multipleGulf of Mexico-focused operators.
“For any given weight, Oxane proppant is stronger,” said Chris Coker, president of Oxane Materials. “For any given strength, Oxane proppant is lighter. With a specific gravity of 3.0, crush fines less than 5% at 20,000 psi, and temperature resistance through 450°F, OxThor will afford more oil production from high-pressure, high-temperature offshore wells.”
