Smart Proppants

New analytical methods enable better understanding of the materials behavior of smart proppants.

 

The Park Systems 2019 Materials Matter Material Science Research and AFM Webinar Series continues with Smart Proppants and Oilfield Productivity. In well completion and production, proppants are classified mostly as commodity materials. However, smart proppants deserve another look. This installment of the webinar series will explore proppants and their materials’ behavior, as well as their impact on higher productivity and lifetime of wells.
This webinar is the seventh in our 2019 Material Science Research and AFM Webinar Series “Materials Matter,” designed to help researchers understand leading edge developments in Materials Science Research and Applications using Atomic Force Microscopy.
