Packers Plus Energy Services Inc. has recently announced the developments with BP Oman Exploration (Epsilon) Ltd. We present before you the entire story of the collaboration...
The developments so far include a customized completion system, successful installation and subsequent stimulation of two high pressure/high temperature (HPHT) wells in Oman's Khazzan field. The initial well showed positive results as the target rate was met after pumping only three of the planned six stages.
Few other notable benefits are: lower fracture initiation pressures and operational efficiency leading to further trials and optimizations for open hole completions going forward. Having used cased hole plug and perf systems previously, BP Oman wanted to trial an open hole system that would increase near wellbore conductivity, reduce treating pressures and be robust enough to function in temperatures up to 350°F (176°C) and working differential pressures of 15,000 psi (103 mpa). Packers Plus worked on upgrading its field proven StackFRAC Titanium XV openhole ball-drop HPHT system to meet the operator's requirements.
