Frac packing combines fracturing and gravel packing. This combined technique—our STIMPAC treatment—prevents sand production while creating wide, highly conductive fractures connecting the reservoir to the wellbore.
Single trip, multiple pumping operations, after perforation
Multizone gravel and frac packing can be done in a single trip with multiple pumping operations after the well has been perforated. The MZ-Xpress and Alternate Path systems are compatible.
Single trip, single pumping operation, after perforation
Multizone gravel and frac packing in closely spaced zones can be is done in a single trip and with a single pumping operation after a well has been perforated.
Single trip, single pumping operation, while perforating
Multizone gravel packing, frac packing can also be done while perforating, all in a single trip. This combination of technologies is unique in the industry: it allows multiple zones to be perforated and gravel and frac packed in a single trip with a single pumping treatment. The QUANTUM PERFPAC and Alternate Path systems are compatible.
Perforating and gravel packing, single trip
For single-zone completions when efficiency is a primary objective because of depths, pressures, costs, or risks, perforating and gravel and frac packing can be performed in a single trip and single pumping treatment. The QUANTUM PERFPAC and Alternate Path systems are compatible.
Fluids used with frac packs optimize sand control treatments and production.
