Fracturing fluid delivery and flowback service
Improve fracturing efficiency by delivering frac fluid from the missile trailer to the wellbore and to flowback.
To maximize reliability in the harsh fracturing environment, our engineers follow rigorous maintenance procedures to ensure that we identify and correct any degradation of fracturing equipment before it is assigned to the next project.
FracServ enhanced valve-reliability program minimizes downtime and related expenses, providing three times more uptime compared with other suppliers. The time—and hence the cost—involved in bringing a new valve to the wellsite, suspending the fracturing operation, isolating the well or system as required, and replacing a faulty valve is about the same as the time and substantial cost required to complete a fracturing stage.
Gate valves in frac trees and manifolds withstand the effects of flowing and controlling high-pressure, high-volume, abrasive, corrosive, and sometimes sour fracturing and flowback fluids for days and even weeks. If ignored, the valve body, seals, seat, gate, or other components can fail, resulting in shutdown of the entire fracturing spread.
To maximize reliability, in addition to rigorous maintenance in the workshop, the crew already present at the wellsite provides regular onsite maintenance via the FracServ program.
Operator saves USD 676,000 in one year and avoids multiple valve replacements at USD 1.5 million each, Arkoma basin.
Operator drills and completes 150 wells in 10 months without compromising safety or efficiency.
CAMShale fracturing fluid delivery and flowback service eliminates fracturing-related NPT and achieves 100% valve integrity success rate.
In modern hydraulic stimulation operations, a key focus for operators and service providers is operational efficiency. While there are many factors that can affect operational efficiency, along with many ways to measure it, most agree that nonproductive time (NPT) due to equipment failure is a major barrier to efficiency gains.
