Preferred Sands has announced that wells using its Arizona Sand proppant outperformed competing oil and gas wells using Premium White Sand at comparable true vertical depths by up to 28 percent, or over $1 million in average increased production.

Preferred Sands, one of North America’s leading proppant technology companies, today announced that wells using its Arizona Sand proppant outperformed competing wells using Premium White Sand at comparable true vertical depths by up to 28 percent, or over $1,000,000 in average increased production. The findings were based on real well data provided by NavPort, which sampled deep horizontal wells in New Mexico. Results from the real well production reports also revealed that Arizona Sand proppants lowered the total proppant cost by an average of 10 percent.

All real well production reports are conducted using actual, disclosed public well data from the NavPort database. To ensure the most accurate production comparison, all wells included in a production report are identified using a strict methodology comprised of 18 distinct selection criteria, including operator name, well trajectory, hydrocarbon type, and distance (all wells included in a horizontal real well production report must be within a 1.5 mile diameter of each other).
