CARBO Ceramics Inc. operates as an oilfield services technology company. The company primarily sells products and services to the oil and gas industry for production enhancement and environmental services. The company sells the majority of its products and services to operators of oil and natural gas wells and to oilfield service companies to help increase the production rates and the amount of oil and natural gas recoverable from these wells. The company’s production enhancement businesses promote increased production and estimated ultimate recovery of oil and natural gas by providing technology to design, build, and optimize the Frac. The company’s environmental services business is intended to protect operators’ assets, minimize environmental risks, and lower lease operating expense. The company supplies ceramic proppant worldwide. The company also sells sand and resin-coated proppants. The company provides fracture simulation software. The company also provides fracture design and consulting services, and a range of technologies for spill prevention, containment and related countermeasures. The company’s products and services are primarily used in the hydraulic fracturing of natural gas and oil wells. The company manufactures various distinct ceramic proppants. KRYPTOSPHERE HD, introduced in 2013, is a ceramic proppant engineered to deliver conductivity and durability in the highest closure stress wells. The company’s proppant, KRYPTOSPHERE LD, meets client needs for a lower density proppant than KRYPTOSPHERE HD, yet has the same technological characteristics and similar conductivity in high stress wells. CARBOHSP and CARBOPROP are intermediate density ceramic proppants, respectively, designed primarily for use in deep oil and gas wells. CARBOLITE, CARBOECONOPROP, and CARBOHYDROPROP are low-density ceramic proppants. CARBOLITE is used in medium depth oil and gas wells, where higher production rates could be achieved due to the product’s uniform size and spherical shape. CARBOECONOPROP provides a lower cost ceramic to compete directly with resin-coated sand and sand proppant. CARBOHYDROPROP improves performance in ‘slickwater’ fracture treatments. The company produces resin-coated ceramic (CARBOBOND LITE), which addresses a niche market in which oil and natural gas wells are subject to the risk of proppant flow-back. CARBO NORTHERN WHITE is a frac sand. In addition, the company manufactures CARBONRT, a detectable proppant that utilizes a non-radioactive tracer material to assist operators in determining the locations of fractures in a natural gas or oil well. This tracer is added to the proppant granules during the manufacturing process, and could be added to most of the types of proppant that the company sells. In 2014, the company began sales of SCALEGUARD, a porous ceramic proppant that is infused with scale-inhibiting chemicals and placed throughout the fracture as part of the hydraulic fracturing process. The infused scale inhibitor in SCALEGUARD is designed to be released into the fracture on contact with water. The company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, StrataGen, Inc. (StrataGen), also sells fracture simulation software under the brand FracPro and provides fracture design and consulting services to oil and natural gas exploration and production companies under the brand StrataGen. FracPro provides a suite of stimulation software solutions to the industry that have marked capabilities for on-site real-time analysis. This stimulation software is integrated with reservoir simulators, thus allowing for stimulation treatment and production optimization. StrataGen, the company’s specialized consulting team, works with operators worldwide to help optimize well placement, fracture treatment design and production enhancement. The range of expertise of the StrataGen consultants includes fracture treatment design; completion support; on-site treatment supervision and quality control; post-treatment evaluation and optimization; reservoir and fracture studies; rock mechanics; and software application and training.
