A Small modification made a world of difference.

Extremely high downhole pressures and static bottom-hole temperatures exceeding 300°F, the Haynesville is a uniquely challenging play. To avoid exceeding the recommended bypass rate, most operators run their composite plugs with a standard 3.57” or 3.60” OD.

Huge water savings: from 14BBL/min to 9BBL/min

Pump-down rates dropped from 14 BBL/minute to 9 BBL/minute, significantly reducing the amount of water needed to reach set depth, which currently cost the operator $.46 per barrel. Plus, the increased diameter reduced the bi-directional pressure across the plug to ensure it could not prematurely set in these conditions.

Fast Pump down speeds meant less non-productive time

100% run. set. hold.

All plugs successfully ran downhole, set and held during frac. Drillout was also fast and effective, with no drillout issues. All told, the operator was impressed with the results of the Scorpion Composite Plug and are ordering more for their next pad.

THE RESULTS

  • REDUCED NPT
  • GREATER EFFICIENCES
  • UNMATCHED PUMP-DOWN RATES
