Formation treatment method using deformable particles

Image Number 17 for United States Patent #6330916.

A subterranean formation is treated by injecting a blend of fracture proppant material and deformable particulate material into the formation. The deformable particulate material may combine with the fracture proppant material to increase fracture conductivity, reduce fines generation, and/or reduce proppant flowback. The fracture proppant material may be a material such as sand, and the deformable particulate material may be a material such as polystyrene divinylbenzene beads.
