Offshore staff

FORT WORTH, TexasGEODynamics, Inc.’s Engineered Completion Solutions Division has completed extensive field testing of the QuickStart Inject and Frac Valve product line, and has released it to the global horizontal completion market. The results of field testing yielded 100% successful toe-stage openings in over 120 wells in the United States.

GEODynamics says that the patented QuickStart Inject and Frac Valve is the value offering within its broader patented SmartStart Plus Time Delay Test and Frac product line, which has been successfully deployed more than 4,000 times. The company believes this success rate makes it the most reliable toe-stage injection valve technology in the industry. 

The company says that the QuickStart Inject and Frac Valve can be used in any well completion for improved stimulation treatments, including offshore completion applications. It notes, however, that the new product is predominantly employed in horizontal shale wells to improve injection rates during hydraulic fracturing treatments.
