Hydraulic fracturing tubing spool enhances safety while saving time
Fully rated tubing spools provide an alternative to the use of bore isolation tools. The SCTE is a hydraulic fracturing tubing spool designed to hold pressures up to 15,000 psi. It reduces both the equipment required on site and rig-up time. Safety of operations is enhanced through the elimination of bore isolation tools.
The SCTE allows use of small-bore valves during fracturing and flowback operations, reducing cost and height and facilitating handling. It is available in 4 1/16-in and 5 1/8-in nominal sizes up to 15,000-psi working pressure, with full opening to both 4 1/2-in and 5 1/2-in casing.
