Proppant-sized solid inhibitors improve flow assurance in fraced wells ///

The economic value of a hydraulically fractured well is highly dependent upon flow assurance—that is, maintaining unimpeded flow of hydrocarbons from the formation to the surface. Flow assurance issues occur in hydraulically fractured wells, as a result of the deposition and buildup of naturally occurring particulates that are present in the system during hydrocarbon production.
