NCS Oilfield Services, an independent technology and services company specializing in multistage completions, announced recently the successful placement of 50 stages in a single well completion, and demonstrated the reliability of its Multistage Unlimited system by repeating that feat in three consecutive wellbores.
“The application of our Multistage Unlimited system in two-mile laterals provides operators with the ability to access more of their reservoir with fewer wellbores,” said Eric Schmelzl, NCS vice president of Strategic Business. “By successfully completing three consecutive two-mile laterals, we have demonstrated our ability to execute that style of completion without any extra tool trips, while maintaining an unobstructed wellbore.”
The multistage completions were all accomplished on two-mile lateral oil wells targeting the Bakken formation.
“At NCS, we believe that the savings in both job time and fluid usage makes the application of our frac sleeves a good environmental decision, and represents a potential cost saving to operators who adopt this method in their well completions,” Schmelzl concluded.
