Momentive adds transload facility in Colorado for resin coated proppants
HOUSTON -- The Oilfield Technology Group of Momentive Specialty Chemicals Inc. has announced the opening of a new transload facility in Colorado to provide resin coated proppants to fracturing service companies and operators.
Located in Ft. Collins, Colorado, this new transload facility is well positioned to serve the surrounding Denver-Julesburg (DJ) Basin area. Exploration companies operating in the DJ Basin, as well as other areas such as the Powder River Basin.
Resin coated proppants are used in the hydraulic fracturing process to help optimize production from oil and gas wells by maximizing fracture flow capacity from the reservoir to the wellbore. Technological innovations and Momentive’s introduction of enhanced materials have expanded the use of resin coated proppants into unconventional reservoirs that feature complex and challenging geological formations.
