Multi-stage horizontal wells now account for nearly 90% of new wells drilled in the U.S. Plug and Perf (PnP) is the dominant completion method and is executed up to 100 times in one well. The well operator rightly has expectations for the highest frac plug reliability because expensive frac jobs must be pumped into the correct perforations. Purchasing a frac plug with a claim of high reliability is a good start. But with close to 500 system combinations of frac plug, frac ball, setting tool, and power charge available for 5 ½” casing applications, how can high reliability be assured in the field? And how do wellbore conditions affect frac plug reliability?
By attending this presentation, you will acquire knowledge on how to increase frac plug reliability in your PnP completions.
