Packers Plus solutions for refrac and re-entry


StackFRAC Slimhole System

The StackFRAC® Slimhole system is specially designed with a smaller liner outside diameter (OD), enabling operators to re-enter vertical or horizontal wells. This system provides a cost-effective solution for restimulation and well recovery applications by enabling exact placement of stimulation treatments in one continuous pumping operation, saving operators time and money.

RockSEAL Straddle System

The RockSEAL® Straddle System is used to create an isolated zone for injection, stimulation or testing operations. The RockSEAL Straddle System is mechanically set without the need for pumping, which enables the packer to be easily set and returned to the run-in position, making it ideal for repeated operations. The tool can be equipped with various accessories such as an emergency ball release, fluid control valve, inline gauges, or an upper cup assembly, which provides additional pack-off in shallow wells.

 

TREX Setting Sleeve

The TREX™ Setting Sleeve provides an effective and economic tie-back option when preparing a well for refrac or re-entry operations. The TREX Setting Sleeve is combined with the TREX Running Tool to provide a system that disengages from the liner without a cutting tool and provides an effective transition option at a pre-determined depth without restricting the inside diameter so stimulation treatment can be delivered at high pump rates.

Stage Tools

Cementing stage collars for monobore completions

Cemented-back monobore well construction reduces total wellbore costs by cementing the vertical and build sections of a well from the heel back to surface with a stage tool, rather than running intermediate casing. This technique also eliminates trips required in traditional operations of removing the running string and installing the fracture string.

Packers Plus offers a range of field-proven stage tools that are specially designed to reduce operational risk and improve efficiency.

 

Packers Plus stage tools offer many features and benefits

Reduced wellbore construction costs by eliminating intermediate casing

SF Cementor® and SF Cementor D stage tools lower risk of lost stages with integrated secondary closure sleeve that provides no loss of diameter

Degradable stage tool options eliminate time and cost of clean-out operations

Packers Plus stage tools

SF Cementor Stage Collar

The SF Cementor stage collar is a hydraulically opened, mechanically closed stage cementing tool. The SF Cementor is closed without the use of a wiper plug or dart, which eliminates the need for a cement head and reduces post-cement cleanout operations, debris issues and associated costs.

SF Cementor D Stage Collar

The SF Cementor D stage collar is a hydraulically opened stage cementing tool that is closed using an actuation ball or specialized wiper plug. A degradable version is available that includes a degradable wiper plug and landing seat to eliminate millout operations.

 

SF Stage Collar

The SF Stage Collar is a hydraulically opened stage cementing tool that is closed using an actuation ball or specialized wiper plug. This simplified version of the SF Cementor D stage collar does not include a secondary closure sleeve, but is available in degradable version to eliminate millout.

Debris Sub

The Debris Sub is used in conjunction with cementing stage tools to provide a barrier to cement stringers or debris during cementing, and to act as a platform for clean-up operations. The Debris Sub is easily milled out to regain communication with the tool string. A degradable version is available to eliminate millout operations.

Multi-Stage Systems

Continuous pumping operations to improve operational efficiency

Packers Plus multi-stage completion systems are designed for open hole and cased hole stimulation in unconventional formations, providing operators with an efficient and cost-effective method to complete their wells. These innovative, field-proven systems allow for exact placement of stimulation treatments in one continuous pumping operation, reducing operational time and cost. Once stimulation operations are complete, a well can be immediately flowed back and put on production.

Packers Plus multi-stage completion systems are modular with regard to tool placement, enabling different combinations of packers and sleeves to be deployed, depending on well conditions, to create a customized design for targeted delivery of the stimulation program.

 

Packers Plus multi-stage completion systems offer many features and benefits
