If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional... wait until you hire an amateur – Red Adair
Although there are a lot of companies that deliver “Packers Plus style systems,” there is a big difference in the completion you will receive. With over a decade of installing the StackFRAC® system throughout the U.S., Canada and internationally, Packers Plus has the experience to deliver success. Our U.S. division of Packers Plus holds the company record for the longest system, lateral, measured depth, as well as the highest number of stages
Would you hire a jack of all trades, but a master of none for your completions?
Over the last several years, various companies have introduced competing systems that mimic the original Packers Plus design, suggesting they can achieve similar success. For many of these companies, the development of an open hole, multi-stage system was just an addition to a large list of offerings and has remained a very small focus within their overall operation.
In contrast, Packers Plus innovated open hole, multi-stage fracturing systems in 2001. Our development of this niche market, an area initially ignored by larger service companies, led to a decade of growth and additional production from resources previously thought to be unrecoverable. With a dedication to constant improvement of our systems, as well as the introduction of additional technology, Packers Plus remains resolutely focused on providing customers with a variety of open hole, multi-stage system solutions.
Consider whether you want a company that does completions among many other operations, or one that has been perfecting their operations to Do It Once, Do It Right.
You can do better than “good enough” when it comes to your open hole packers
The concept that a packer just needs to be “good enough” to ensure an effective completion is a dangerous assumption. A successful packer must offer a reliable seal in a variety of well conditions.
Packers Plus RockSEAL® II dual-element, mechanical packers offer:
Ease of Installation
RockSEAL II packers provide reduced torque and drag due to their short length. Typically, they are ~5 ft in length with only two short sections of rubber element. Additionally, the RockSEAL II packer has a minimum running outside diameter (OD). These features allow for easier installation, particularly in wells with high dogleg severity.
RockSEAL II packers are set using hydraulic pressure. This provides precise control over the setting process, resulting in significant time and cost efficiencies. The setting pressure of RockSEAL II packers can also be adjusted, allowing them to be adapted to different well conditions and suited for each specific job.
The durometer rating on the RockSEAL II packer elements does not decrease upon setting, enabling them to maintain a strong seal throughout the life of a well. The elements are also designed to withstand temperature drops that occur during stimulation preventing any loss of pressure seal. In addition, the dual-element design of the RockSEAL II packer offers two independent sealing points, ensuring a reliable seal even in high treating pressures.
When you select a packer, consider not only the difference it makes on your completion operations, but how it can affect the success of your well. Packers Plus RockSEAL II packers deliver ease of installation, control, and reliability to ensure the most effective multi-stage fracture stimulation
Are you running tools with a unique serial number that provides 100% traceability?
As an industry leader of horizontal, open hole multi-stage systems, Packers Plus has been structured to quickly respond to customer needs. Along with a qualified workforce, Packers Plus has multiple district locations in the U.S. that are designed around the service and supply of our systems.
Packers Plus also has an 88,000 ft2 manufacturing center in Houston, TX dedicated to serving our U.S. and international customers. This compliments our 126,000 ft2 manufacturing center in Edmonton, AB, which comprises manufacturing engineering personnel, component storage, manual assembly, torquing, pressure testing and quality assurance. These facilities operate under strict quality control to ensure accuracy throughout all of our products.
A fully integrated quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) process separates Packers Plus from other companies:
Using a 2D bar coding system, Packers Plus has 100% traceability of tools and individual components. This allows us to trace the tools from the raw materials used through manufacturing and final installation.
With several machine shops and a network of partners, Packers Plus has an extensive manufacturing capacity. These networks provide us with the best quality possible and strong relationships give us the ability to deliver systems faster than larger service companies.
Beginning with quality raw steel, Packers Plus uses a 10% inspection rate of all Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) manufactured runs to ensure our tools are consistent. This can quickly become a 100% inspection rate at the request of the customer.
Automation equipment and a Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) allow for ultimate precision and all tools in our product line can be measured to within 1/10,000 of an inch.
ISO 9001 Certification
As a result of our comprehensive QA/QC process we have achieved ISO 9001 certification of our manufacturing operations and our engineering R&D design process.
Challenge the status quo and take your completion to the next level
Packers Plus has established itself as an innovative company by challenging traditional completion methods used in North America. The StackFRAC open hole, multi-stage system, designed in 2001, revolutionized the completion of horizontal wells. This culture of innovation has remained a critical component of Packers Plus ever since
Although StackFRAC applications have been the driving focus of the company since the inception of the technology, new equipment and processes are continually being developed to adapt to changing demand. Our Rapid Tool Development centers located in the U.S. and in Canada enable us to adapt and introduce new technology to quickly meet our customers’ needs.
Innovation has remained critical to our success and dictates how we do business every day.
Packers Plus is an innovator of leading-edge downhole completions specializing in horizontal multi-stage fracturing
