Particles coated with a solid, fusible resin are placed in a subterranean formation. At formation conditions, the resin first melts or softens, and then cures to an insoluble, infusible state. This bonds the particles together forming a permeable, self-sustaining structure in or adjacent the formati ...

Nguyen Philip D, Barton Johnny A: Resin-coated proppant for subterranean fractures. Halliburton Energy Serv, July 9, 2003: EP1326003-A1 (64 worldwide citation)

Resin-coated proppant particles are suspended in a fracturing fluid and deposited in a subterranean fracture and consolidated into high strength permeable masses. As the fractures are formed, a liquid hardenable resin component is continuously mixed with a liquid hardening agent component on-the-fly ...

Weaver Jim D, Stanford James R, Nguyen Philip D, Dewprashad Brahmadeo T: Treating subterranean formation. Halliburton Energy Serv, May 17, 2000: EP1001133-A1 (64 worldwide citation)

A subterranean formation is treated with a particulate laden fluid whereby particulate flowback is reduced or prevented. The fluid comprises a mixture of a particulate, a tackifying compound and a multifunctional material, and the tackifying compound retards movement of at least a portion of the par ...

Nguyen Philip D, Barton Johnny A: Fracturing subterranean zones. Halliburton Energy Serv, March 10, 2004: EP1396606-A2 (61 worldwide citation)

Subterranean zones are fractured using a fracturing fluid containing proppant particles coated with a furfuryl alcohol resin composition. The coated proppant particles are deposited in the fractures and the resin coating hardens by heat to consolidate the proppant particles into chemical and thermal ...
