Oxane Materials, a Houston-based marketer and manufacturer of Advanced Ceramic Proppant®, today announced OxThor™, a highly conductive, stronger, lighter proppant focused on high value, technologically-demanding Deepwater applications.

Reservoir quantities of OxThor™ are expected to be produced in 2014.  Conversations regarding field trials are underway with multiple Gulf of Mexico-focused operators.

“For any given weight, Oxane proppant is stronger.  For any given strength, Oxane proppant is lighter.  With a specific gravity of 3.0, crush fines less than 5% at 20,000 psi, and temperature resistance through 450 degrees F, OxThor will afford ʽMore oil production from high pressure, high temperature, offshore wells,'” said Chris Coker, President of Oxane Materials.
