Customized Ceramic Fracturing Proppant

Product Announcement from Saint-Gobain NorPro

Customized Ceramic Fracturing Proppant-Image

Saint-Gobain NorPro has released BauxLite®, a new proppant developed jointly by the Stow, Ohio (USA) site, the Saint-Gobain Proppants production team in Fort Smith, Arkansas (USA), and the Northboro R&D Center, Massachusetts (USA).

BauxLite® differs from other proppants in terms of its customized density. Because of its light weight and its competitive price, BauxLite® enables oil and gas drilling companies to reduce their costs.

Proppants are ceramic beads the size of a grain of sand, manufactured at high temperatures and able to withstand extreme pressures. These beads are injected into the underground fractures around oil and gas wells to boost their output.
