How it improves unconventional hydraulic fracturing plug-and-perf operations

The Unity single-use wireline adapter kit and frac plug setting tool combines the advantages of the FracXion fully composite and ReacXion fully dissolvable frac plug portfolios with a single-use, recyclable setting tool that increases reliability and expedites rig-up. The setting tool streamlines multistage fracturing operations by building upon the same platforms that have enabled tens of thousands of successful frac plug runs. However, it takes reliability further by eliminating the need to redress the setting tool at the wellsite, thereby avoiding field-assembly error and minimizing the potential for human error.

Use with composite and dissolvable frac plugs for pump down plug and perf with or without ball-in-place

The Unity tool is compatible with FracXion and ReacXion plugs, which can be run with the ball in place or with the ball dropped from surface when the plug is in position. The setting tool and frac plug are preassembled before delivery to the wellsite. The setting tool and plug are designed to work together, minimizing the possibility of incomplete setting. The effective bottomhole assembly is also shorter and lighter. This equates to easier handling and pumpdown operations and reduces HSE risks.

Eliminate need of wellsite frac plug setting tool maintenance during shale horizontal well completion operations

Because the single-use Unity tool is preassembled and recyclable, no maintenance or redressing is required. The setting tool self-bleeds downhole, thereby eliminating exposure of personnel to pressurized tools on surface. Further, the tool contains no oil, so there is no added risk of disposing of, handling, or spilling the substance. The setting tool can adapt to commonly used industry firing heads. Once stimulation operations are complete, the plugs can be easily milled out (for FracXion frac plug operations), or they can dissolve in standard stimulation and wellbore fluids (for ReacXion frac plug operations).

What the wireline adapter kit and setting tool with frac plug replaces

Discrete frac plug and wireline adapter kits. The Unity setting tool integrates these in one preassembled solution, expediting rig-up and minimizing downtime.

How can this be configured for my multistage stimulation treatment

Plugs can be configured in ball-drop or ball-in-place configuration.
