PROPEL SSP PROPPANT TRANSPORT TECHNOLOGY
REDUCES COST PER BOE WITH
LESS THAN FOUR-MONTH PAYOUT
RAPID PAYOUT IN THE WILLISTON BASIN
Robust hydraulic fracturing technology is improving operational efficiency and lowering cost per BOE with a rapid payout in North Dakota. An operator completed six wells with Propel SSP® technology—a proppant and fluid system in one—that uniformly distributes proppant throughout the fluid column. The operator compared this six-well performance with five offset wells completed with a gel-based fluid and frac sand.

STREAMLINING OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY
Propel SSP reduces time and materials needed to complete a frac job. The risk of screenout is reduced significantly. Overall, the operator is applying a more efficient frac design.
Propel SSP technology is slowing the production decline that is typical in unconventional reservoirs. The production percentage is increasing month over month.
"On average, we are realizing a 39% production improvement. Within our tier-one acreage, some areas have slightly lower porosity and permeability; in these areas we are improving production more than 84%."
