The fastest path to profitability

Nine has a variety of frac plug solutions to meet your specific completion challenge—all engineered to get profitability flowing faster.

Scorpion™ Composite Plugs

As wells become deeper and laterals become longer, operators are seeking faster, more reliable frac plug solutions for zonal isolation. Manufactured almost entirely of composite material, the Scorpion Composite Plug from Nine is significantly shorter than most plugs of its kind, allowing for a much faster millout.

  • Shorter design for faster millout
  • Scientifically molded construction for excellent quality
  • Single elastomer element, compression-energized
  • Segmented backup rings
  • Ceramic gripping buttons

Scorpion Extended-Range Plugs

When your casing fails or collapses, it can cripple operations. You need a prompt diagnosis and remedy, but there aren’t always a lot of readily available options. Fortunately, Nine’s Scorpion Extended-Range Plug is designed to get you out of tight situations.

Featuring a small diameter, it’s designed to get through narrow restrictions, expanding to securely fit 4-inch, 4.5-inch, or 5.5-inch casing.

Through its wireline services, Nine also offers modeling software with the Scorpion Extended-Range Plug that allows the operator to verify that successful pump-down operations can occur.

  • Ceramic button slips for a secure set in hardened casing (i.e. ICY casing)
  • Compact and easy running
  • Unique lug design on top and muleshoe design on bottom eliminating spin during drill out
  • Can be drilled using conventional stick pipe or coiled tubing.
