Optimize your pay zone, minimize your costs
Take your casing all the way to TD on long laterals without having to deal with device debris. The Breakthru™ Casing Flotation Device from Nine boosts efficiency and saves costs.
A successful cementing job starts with successful casing placement. The Breakthru Casing Flotation Device helps you make it happen. It features a technologically advanced barrier that allows the buoyancy needed to float casing across long lateral runs.
Once TD is reached, pressure is applied to disintegrate the plug into fine sand-like particles. These fine particles are easily circulated out through sleeves, toe valves, and float equipment. There is no need for a debris trap, fluid flushes, or extra trips to retrieve device pieces. Instead, you can begin pumping cement right away. The engineered material barrier is extremely durable, providing a reliable seal under the extreme temperatures and axial loads encountered during run-in, yet reliably shatters once the casing is landed.
Because there is no debris trap or landing collar taking up space on the string, you’re able to gain access to the full wellbore. Instead of drilling wasted lateral, you’re getting more exposure to the pay zone sooner. You save rig time, eliminate the costs of extra threads and a landing collar, and boost your estimated ultimate recovery (EUR).
Nine engineers provide detailed modeling of the job up front. Before a single tool is run, you know that your casing is being set up for cementing success.
Nine helped a customer land 17,000 feet of casing across a 9,000-foot lateral and boost recovery revenues.
When you live on the cutting edge, you field a lot of questions. If you don’t find the answers you need here, please reach out to us directly.
Our shoe track requirements are less than other devices, which saves you from drilling wasted lateral and allows more of the lateral to be completed.
The device is manufactured to perform. It is made from high-quality, ultra-durable engineered material, which can withstand extreme downhole temperatures and loads. Once the string is landed, pressure up to the activation pressure and the plug disintegrates, leaving the bore ready for cementing.
