Multistage stimulation system

The KickStart rupture disc valve is the first tool in a multistage stimulation string. It eliminates the need for coiled tubing– or tubing-conveyed perforating in the first stage, offering a more efficient and cost-effective method of starting the fracturing process.

The valve is run to the toe of the well as part of the casing string. Increasing the casing pressure to a predetermined value causes the valve’s rupture discs to burst, shifting a sliding sleeve and opening the valve, thereby exposing the formation to the fracturing fluid. The first stimulation treatment can begin and subsequent pumpdown operations can follow.
