Original Press Release:
Badger Mining Introduces Activator-Free, Low-Temperature Proppant, Badger Tundra™
Badger Mining Corporation (BMC) is pleased to announce the release of Badger Tundra™, a first of its kind, activator-free, low-temperature resin coated Northern White sand that works in conditions as low as 70 degrees Fahrenheit. While competitor’s products either crumble under the pressure, fail to generate consistent bond strength at low temperatures, or set up prematurely, BMC’s Badger Tundra™ sets the benchmark in activator-free, low-temperature proppant flowback solutions.
“In today’s oil and gas environment, operators are looking for low-cost solutions,” says Joe Cessar, leader of oil and gas sales at BMC. “Badger Tundra™ generates real, repeatable bond strength to prevent proppant flowback at temperatures as low as 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Our customers can complete their wells with confidence and generate a very quick return on a relatively modest investment.”
With its new and proprietary resin formulation, Badger Tundra™ will protect operators from surface iron washouts, excessive spend on sand separators and disposal, expensive coiled tubing cleanouts, and the pulling and replacing of down-hole pumps. Furthermore, Badger Tundra™ is the first proppant technology to utilize more than 60 percent bio-renewable materials in its composition.
“We looked at the available low-temperature products on the market, be they phenolics or polyurethanes, and recognized the technology being used was simply not good enough,” says Adam Katz, leader of sales and marketing at BMC. “So we went back to the drawing board and developed a brand new technology that is truly unique and custom designed for low temperature wells. There is no question that Badger Tundra™ is the best low-temperature resin coated sand on the market, so why pump anything else?”
All Badger Tundra™ is coated on BadgerFrac®, a Premium Northern White sand substrate originating from the company’s mining facilities in Wisconsin, and can be available at any of BMC’s two dozen distribution centers throughout the Americas.
