STANDARD 40/70 MESH

40/70-mesh standard frac sand is sourced from mines in the region of operations. It meets all API RP 19C standards for acid solubility in hydrochloric acid, the acid of choice in North American fracturing operations.

All sources for this proppant are carefully selected for quality with properties that ensure the proppant’s ability to withstand typical downhole environments without degradation and maintain a conductive pathway after fracture closure.

APPLICATIONS

  • Hydraulic fracturing operations
  • Operations that require proppant with standard performance specifications

BENEFITS

  • Provides a conductive pathway for oil and gas production
  • Minimizes fines generation due to high roundness and sphericity
  • Withstands closure stresses greater than 10,000 psi

FEATURES

  • Compliance with API RP 19C and ISO 13503-2
  • Roundness and sphericity values greater than or equal to 0.6
  • Low acid solubility and turbidity reduces dust and fines generation
  • High silica content provides superior crush performance
