Video: UltiPac Alternate Path Extended-Reach Gravel-Pack Screen

Promotes full gravel packs in longer intervals previously considered unachievable

The UltiPac gravel-pack screen is a system for gravel packing openhole extended-reach wells both on land and offshore. It is especially effective in wells requiring compartmentalization or isolation with packers as it can be coupled with shunted zonal isolation packers to gravel pack multiple zones in a single operation. The screen is equipped with shunt tubes encased by the screen wire; this protective shell allows the screen to be fully rotated while it is being run in extended and horizontal wells. The tubes, along with slurry exit nozzles, serve as an alternate flow channel that allows slurry to bypass sand bridges and fill in voids that can occur during gravel packing.
