Field-proven for faster and greater savings.

Delivering the most advanced dissolvable technology in the industry, the Stinger Dissolvable Plug from Nine provides greater savings in multi-well plug-and-perf operations. And currently, it offers the leading low-temperature solution to work consistently and predictably.

By dissolving, operators avoid the time, risks and costs associated with conventional completions—operators save in upfront Authorization for Expenditure (AFE) costs. Because they get to production faster, operators also see an Increased Rate of Return (IRR). The Stinger also eliminates the need for coil, which can result in weeks of downtime and up to $1 million in costs if stuck downhole.

The Stinger is designed to be one of the shortest dissolvable frac plugs to date, featuring a single as opposed to dual slips. This design is made possible thanks to the unique sealing mechanism that eliminates the need for a mandrel and allows for a smaller element, improving dissolution.

Available in high-temperature, mid-temperature, and low-temperature versions, the Stinger features a larger ID to accommodate immediate flowback and freshwater magnesium, which works in all environments, including high-chloride, reuse water.

Significantly shorter than most composite plugs, the Scorpion™ Composite Plug from Nine Energy Service is designed to deliver much faster, reliable millout in long, lateral wells.
