Flexible multistage stimulation technique for cased hole wells

Plug-and-perf completions are extremely flexible multistage well completion techniques for cased hole wells. Each stage can be perforated and treated optimally because options can be exercised up to the moment the perforating gun is fired. The engineer can apply knowledge from each previous stage to optimize treatment of the current stage.

The process consists of pumping a plug and perforating guns to a given depth. The plug is set, the zone perforated, and the tools removed from the well. A ball is pumped down to isolate the zones below the plug and the fracture stimulation treatment is pumped in. The ball-activated plug diverts fracture fluids through the perforations into the formation. After the stage is completed, the next plug and set of perforations are initiated, and the process is repeated moving further up the well.

Copperhead Drillable Bridge and Frac Plug

Aluminum bridge plug with a one-way internal check valve that allows free flow of fluids from below the plug after stimulation.

Copperhead Big Bore Flow-Through Frac Plug

Cast-iron frac plug with a large flow-through ID that allows fluids to flow freely from below the plug after stimulation and facilitates interventions later in the life of the well.
