Commitment to Quality Enables Operators to Install Now and Complete their Well Later

August 18, 2015

July 15, 2015, Calgary, Alberta, CANADA – The ability to wait until oil returns to a favorable price is an efficient and economical solution during a downturn. Packers Plus Energy Services Inc. is committed to offering operators with this option by providing high quality technologies that will enable them to install completion systems now and successfully complete them months or years later.

“Several Packers Plus systems have been installed and successfully completed after lengthy delays,” says Ian Bryant, Packers Plus Chief Operating Officer. “Our fully integrated quality assurance and quality control process contributes to this and allows for the option to stimulate reservoirs when the economics make sense.”

In 2009, a Packers Plus StackFRAC® system was installed in the Horn River Basin of Northeastern British Columbia, Canada, during the economic downturn. After install, the operator waited more than four years before returning to successfully stimulate the well. Another operator installed several Packers Plus systems that were successfully stimulated 40 weeks after the initial installation.

Beginning at the design stage, the Packers Plus QA/QC process follows each component through manufacturing, assembly, testing, shipping and installation – ensuring each system’s quality and reliability. Automation and robotics are incorporated into this proven process, providing consistency and repeatability of key criteria in each step. Packers Plus also provides 100% traceability for every system component from assembly through to installation, including the position of each component in a well. This comprehensive process separates Packers Plus from other completion companies and provides operators with the confidence to successfully complete delayed stimulation.
