Saint-Gobain Proppants and Texas A&M Energy Institute collaborate on investigation of prop

Saint-Gobain Proppants and Texas A&M Energy Institute collaborate on investigation of proppants for hydraulic fracturing 29 December 2013 Researchers from Texas A&M University’s Energy Institute and Saint-Gobain Proppants have begun a collaborative effort to better understand the behavior of proppants in hydraulic fracturing operations. The collaboration will initially involve research into the “down hole” performance of proppants in fractured wells. The collaboration will consist of two research projects: An exploration of geochemical interactions between formation fluids and minerals with fracturing fluid and proppants to better understand how different materials are affected by bore and fracture ambient conditions. The work, led by Hisham Nasr-El-Din, professor in the Harold Vance Department of Petroleum Engineering at Texas A&M, is expected to lead to better understand...
