Title (EN) PROPPANTS COMPRISING GLASS MATERIAL
(FR) AGENTS DE SOUTÈNEMENT COMPORTANT UN MATÉRIAU DE VERRE
Abstract:
(EN) Proppants and methods for their preparation are described herein. The proppants can be prepared by a process comprising (a) directing a molten glass material on to an atomizing apparatus to output the molten glass material in the form of atomized droplets, and (b) projecting the droplets of the molten glass material towards a receiver, wherein a substantial portion of the droplets at least partially solidifies in flight. In some embodiments, the molten glass material can include molten slag. The atomizing apparatus can be a spinning disc, for example a rotary atomizing disc. Methods for hydraulic fracturing of a well in a subterranean formation having a fracturing stress are also described herein.
(FR) L'invention concerne des agents de soutènement et des procédés pour leur préparation. Les agents de soutènement peuvent être préparés au moyen d'un procédé consistant (a) à diriger un matériau de verre fondu sur un appareil d'atomisation pour produire le matériau de verre fondu sous la forme de gouttelettes atomisées, et (b) à projeter les gouttelettes du matériau de verre fondu vers un récepteur, une partie substantielle des gouttelettes se solidifiant en vol au moins en partie. Dans certains modes de réalisation, le matériau de verre fondu peut comprendre des scories en fusion. L'appareil d'atomisation peut être un disque rotatif, par exemple un disque d'atomisation rotatif. L'invention concerne également des procédés de fracturation hydraulique d'un puits dans une formation souterraine présentant une contrainte de fracturation.
