In addition, last year the company released its Spec- traSphere fluid mapping-while-drilling service, which delivers downhole fluid composition during drilling with real-time pressure measurements while drilling. Shale Support Shale Support supplies white fracture sand as well as logistical support throughout all major shale plays in the Americas. The company mines fracture sand from its properties in Picayune, Miss., and can trans- port its proppant via road, rail or barge through North America.
