Halliburton reveals new dissolvable frac plug

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – Halliburton’s Completion Tools has introduced the Illusion fully dissolvable frac plug. The 10,000-psi rated frac plug eliminates the need to mill out a plug after fracing.

Halliburton says the plug can be installed anywhere in the wellbore for optimal placement of perforations to improved fracturing, without prepositioned locator subs or other equipment that remains in the wellbore post-frac. Illusion frac plugs dissolve completely to leave an unrestricted bore for production, and no intervention is required to clean the wellbore after the frac, Halliburton continues.
