Successful crossover repair
Saltel Patch repairs damaged crossover, allowing to resume frac operations
In a new well, a large hole in a crossover (5in to 4.5in) at 9,548ft [2,910m] was precluding the PlugnPerf
stimulation program from continuing.
Saltel Patch was selected as a unique alternative to isolate the leak while
- withstanding the requested 12,000 frac internal differential service pressure rating
- molding to the different geometries of the crossover
- allowing sufficient ID to run slimline plugs and resume the PlugnPerf stimulation.
