Packers Plus Energy Services Inc. is proud to announce its Inferno system – an extreme high temperature completion solution – has been recognized as the 2015 recipient of the E&P Special Meritorious Award for Engineering Innovation.

“An operator challenged Packers Plus to design a completion system capable of withstanding 600°F and 10,000 psi,” says Dan Themig, President & CEO of Packers Plus. “Within months, Packers Plus successfully designed, prototyped, tested and delivered the Inferno system.”

The Inferno system leverages the best of Packers Plus innovation to service the geothermal market, distinguishing Packers Plus as the “go-to” solutions company for complex completions. Because the limits of oil and gas completions continue to be pushed by targeting deeper and hotter formations, the Inferno tools also have applications for multistage hydraulic fracturing.

The 45th annual E&P Special Meritorious Award for Engineering Innovation honors new products and technologies that demonstrate innovation in concept, design and application. The award was presented to Packers Plus at the 2015 DUG Permian Basin conference and exhibition in Fort Worth, Texas.
