CALGARY -- Packers Plus Energy Services worked with an operator in Egypt to complete a 6-stage StackFRAC system using the drillable closeable (DC) FracPORT sleeve in a short timeframe.
"Packers Plus' advanced manufacturing capabilities ensured the product was delivered and tested within three days, meeting the client's operational timeline and technical requirements," said Packers Plus President, Ian Bryant. "Not only was the client working in a short turnaround time, they were also interested in a closeable system that would simplify future operations."
The openhole approach was chosen over the plug-and-perf method to shorten operational time, simplify operations and reduce overall cost. The DC sleeve is a ball-actuated, hydraulically activated injection/production port. The closeable feature of the sleeve provides the operator with options to shut-off water encroachment if required, reducing operational costs and optimizing production performance. The operation, installation and completion, done in conjunction with Packers Plus' global marketing alliance partner Schlumberger, were executed according to plan. Additional systems have been planned for late 2016.
