SUN manufacturers, an advanced proppant technology and drilling fluid additive manufacturer, is helping oil and gas operators fight gravity with an ultra-lightweight proppant, according to North American Shale.

Over the last decade, SUN has been fine-tuning an ultra-lightweight proponent that weighs less than traditional frack sand. The new product provides better fracture matrix coverage than a sand-only mixture, improves long-term production curves and helps to maintain the fracture network on the high side and far field that sand alone can’t typically reach or maintain over time.

The proppant created by SUN weighs less than sand at 1.06 specific gravity and is nearly buoyant in slickwater.
