Successful Stage Tool repair with Saltel Patch
Ensuring well integrity, enabling Fracturing the well, leaving sufficient ID for the largest frac ball, and withstanding 8,900 psi [613 bar] frac pressure.
The client well had a frac port that was stuck in the open position. To resume fracturing operations, a casing patch had to be set inside the well to isolate the stage tool and restore well integrity.
The stage tool was milled out to drift ID 3.794 in [96.39 mm], the Patch needed to leave access for a 3.375in [85.73 mm] ball, yet still withstand high fracturing pressures of 8,900psi for multiple fracs with 2,000 tons of proppant.
