Solutions for Plug and Perf Technology
‘Plug & Perf’ is one of the most widely adopted unconventional techniques. It involves pumping a frac plug down to a predetermined depth, perforating a rock, before a ball follows in to seal and isolate the wellbore. Thanks to this highly methodical technique, the plug and perf technique creates results that can be replicated even in the most challenging of environments and well settings.
This method of fracturing relies on plugs that are made from a unique set of composite materials. Composite plugs are non-dissolvable, which requires them to be milled out prior to production.
The dissolvable options, such as magnesium, would allow these sorts of plugs to become completely dissolvable. They would not require milling-out, and would allow for quicker, easier and much more efficient excavations.
Frac Plugs Optimize Cost, Capabilities In Plug And Perf Completions
Trident Hybrid Composite Fracturing Plug
The Trident Hybrid Composite Fracturing Plug is an optimal design that provides rugged, reliable performance in the well bore and ease of removal during drill-out. The innovative slip design utilizes a composite upper slip for more aggressive mill out procedures, while maintaining integrity during hydraulic operations.
The Trident SC Composite Fracturing Plug
The Trident SC Composite Fracturing Plug, is a quick millable plug designed for plug and perf operations. These plugs are run and set on wireline with the ball on seat or the ball can be pumped down to the plug afterward. After fracturing, the plugs are milled out to the full drift diameter of the wellbore, allowing for maximum production.
Trident Total Composite Fracturing Plug
Trident Total Composite Fracturing Plug is used to isolate hydrocarbon formations in multi-stage, plug and perf fracturing operations. Designed with molded phenolic components and low metallic content, the Trident Total frac plug can be quickly and easily milled and circulated back to surface with minimal effort. The plug can be run and set on wireline with a ball on seat or the ball can be pumped down to the seat prior to beginning the frac job. After fracturing, the plugs are milled out to the full drift diameter of the wellbore, allowing for maximum production.
Trident X Composite Fracturing Plug
The Trident X Composite Fracturing Plug is a quick milling bridge plug designed for plug and perforate operations. These plugs are run and set on wireline with the ball on seat or the ball can be pumped down to the plug afterward. This plug is designed with all millable components, with an absolute minimum amount of metal used in the plug. A patent pending composite slip design with cast iron wickers holds the plug securely in place when the plug is set. An innovative collet system is utilized to increase the reliability of the shear release during setting
Echo Dissolvable Fracturing Plug
Echo series of dissolvable hydraulic fracturing plug technologies are specifically designed to provide a fully dissolvable multistage fracturing solution in the widest variation of applications. Developed with dissolvable magnesium alloys, dissolvable elastomers, and dissolvable high-strength metal-matrix material, the Echo dissolvable frac plugs are capable of withstanding pressures up to 10,000 psi (69 MPa) in temperatures up to 250° F (135° C)
Plug and Perf technology employed in wells with cemented liners, it involves pumping down a bridge plug on wireline with perforating guns. The operator sets the plug at a horizontal location near the well toe, and the zone is then perforated.
Next, the tools are removed from the well, and the fracture stimulation treatment gets pumped in. A ball-activated plug diverts fracture fluids through the perforations and into the formation.
As the operator repeats the “plug and perf” process for each stage, the downhole tools move from the end of the wellbore back to the beginning until each stage has been fraced
