Title
(EN) PROPPANT PARTICULATES FORMED FROM POLYAROMATIC HYDROCARBONS
(FR) PARTICULES D'AGENT DE SOUTÈNEMENT FORMÉES À PARTIR D'HYDROCARBURES POLYAROMATIQUES
Abstract
(EN)
Proppant particulates are commonly used in hydraulic fracturing operations to maintain one or more fractures in an opened state following the release of hydraulic pressure. In complex fracture networks, it can be difficult to deposit proppant particulates fully within the fractures. In addition, low crush strengths may result in problematic fines formation. Polyaromatic hydrocarbons, commonly encountered in various refinery process streams, may serve as an advantageous precursor to proppant particulates. Polyaromatic hydrocarbons may undergo crosslinking under acid-catalyzed conditions in an aqueous solvent in the presence of a surfactant to form substantially spherical particulates that may serve as effective proppant particulates during fracturing operations. In situ formation of the proppant particulates may take place in some cases.

Des particules d'agent de soutènement sont couramment utilisées dans des opérations de fracturation hydraulique pour maintenir une ou plusieurs fractures à l'état ouvert suite au relâchement de la pression hydraulique. Dans des réseaux de fractures complexes, il peut être difficile de déposer l'intégralité des particules d'agent de soutènement dans les fractures. De plus, de faibles résistances à l'écrasement peuvent entraîner une formation de fines problématiques. Les hydrocarbures polyaromatiques, couramment utilisés dans divers flux de traitement de raffinerie, peuvent servir de précurseur avantageux aux particules d'agent de soutènement. Les hydrocarbures polyaromatiques peuvent subir une réticulation dans des conditions catalysées par acide dans un solvant aqueux en présence d'un tensioactif pour former des particules sensiblement sphériques qui peuvent servir de particules d'agent de soutènement efficaces pendant les opérations de fracturation. Une formation in situ des particules d'agent de soutènement peut se produire dans certains cas.
