CARBO offers tracer for sand stimulations

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – CARBO Ceramics Inc. (NYSE:CRR) has introduced CARBONRT ULTRA, a detectable, inert tracer for sand stimulated completions in vertical or horizontal wells.

CARBO Ceramics says that CARBONRT ULTRA enables the detection and evaluation of near-wellbore proppant location and quantity. It is detectable by standard neutron logging.

The company added that the tracer does not dissolve or wash away and is permanently identifiable, providing operators the flexibility to conduct post-fracture logging months or years after fracturing.
