Preferred Sands Introduces Heat as Latest Product in its Innovative Line of Polymeric Proppant Technologies

Preferred Sands introduced 'Heat' as the latest product in its innovative line of polymeric proppant technologies. 30/50 Heat, which scored 22K psi in standard ISO crush resistance testing, replaces the need for costly ceramics by providing a superior combination of strength and embedment resistance specifically in wells above 7K psi closure stress. Utilizing Preferred’s flexible Polymeric Proppant Technology, Heat minimizes embedment and maintains fracture width particularly in high clay content formations like the Appalachia. Due to the Polymeric Proppant’s superior bonding capabilities, Heat also ensures near-wellbore fracture consolidation in high-temperature basins such as the Haynesville. Recent well data provided by NavPort confirmed that Preferred Polymeric Proppants are an optimal fit for the Marcellus and Utica regions. The well data, which sampled high clay content wells from the Appalachia region, found that wells that used a Preferred Polymeric Proppant tail-in outperformed competing wells using Raw Sand at comparable vertical depths by more than 100%.
