The success of the QuickFRAC completion solution and respective effectiveness of the stimulation treatment through the sleeves was confirmed using gas and water chemical tracers. The QuickFRAC completion equipment functioned as designed, without the need for intervention. Using the Packers Plus Debris Sub as a pressure test sub, the cemented liner successfully passed the required pressure test and then facilitated communication from the wellbore to the reservoir as designed. This allowed for these specific reservoir zones at the toe to be hydraulically fractured, ultimately contributing to the largest stimulation treatment performed to date in Australia. It also demonstrated the ability of the limited-entry QuickFRAC system to breakdown the formation of a complex stress regime, without perforating through the zone of near-wellbore stress concentration.
The project resolved multiple challenges: reaching the distant toe of the well without intervention, enabling the equal distribution of the stimulation fluid across four cemented sleeves using erosion-protected nozzles sized specifically for the planned pumping treatment. The QuickFRAC system and Toe-AP technologies deliver value for any operation by providing a multi-point-entry, multi-stage completion solution for long, horizontal cemented wellbores, reducing the total project cost by eliminating intervention and unlocking previously inaccessible production with increased access to the reservoir.
Packers Plus is a leading supplier of multi-stage fracturing systems, providing field-proven stimulation technology for completing horizontal wells with superior production results in numerous formations around the world.
