Abstract

This paper describes the performance evaluation of curable resin coated proppants currently used in Russian Oilfields. The performance of these RCPs is compared based on established API/ISO standards and standard resin coated proppant testing methods currently applied within Schlumberger. These methods investigate further fluid compatibility between fluid systems and resin, proppant pack integrity under a variety and combination of curing conditions and proppant pack integrity under well flowing conditions. In the paper we evaluate the material performance of resin coated proppants used in Russia, showcase new resin coated proppant testing methods and demonstrate the need for firm industry standards devoted to the testing of resin coated proppants.
