AirRide Buoyancy AdditiveSuspend proppant longer, farther, and higher

The AirRide buoyancy enhancer improves proppant transport and distribution in the fracture network, improving reservoir conductivity without increasing fluid viscosity—even in tight formations. AirRide is an engineered solution for production enhancement that uses conventional operational procedures and equipment at the wellsite and is compatible with all water types.

A specialist at the Engineering & Technology Center demonstrates how AirRide buoyancy enhancer works.
