The company offers ceramic proppants, including CARBOHSP and CARBOPROP designed for use in deep gas wells; CARBOLITE used in medium depth oil and gas wells; CARBOECONOPROP; CARBOHYDROPROP to enhance performance in slickwater fracture treatments; and CARBOBOND LITE, a resin-coated ceramic for oil and natural gas wells that are subject to the risk of proppant flow-back. Its ceramic proppants also comprise CARBOBOND RCS, a conductivity proppant; CARBO NORTHERN WHITE, a frac sand that is used by operators that value quality; CARBONRT, a detectable proppant used to assist operators in determining the locations of fractures in natural gas and oil wells; KRYPTOSPHERE HD, a ceramic proppant engineered to deliver increased conductivity and durability in the highest closure stress wells; and SCALEGUARD, a porous ceramic proppant that is infused with scale-inhibiting chemicals and placed throughout the fracture as part of the hydraulic fracturing process. The company also provides fracture simulation software under the FracPro brand, as well as offers hydraulic fracture design and consulting services under the StrataGen brand. In addition, it provides for spill prevention, containment, and countermeasure systems for the oil and gas industry.
