Weatherford International plc announced the commercial release of its TruFrac® composite frac plug at the 2015 Intervention and Coiled Tubing Association (ICoTA) Conference and Exhibition in Booth 411. With a high level of reliability, the TruFrac® composite frac plug maximizes the efficiency of plug-and-perf completion operations by reducing time on location.
Weatherford is the only integrated oilfield services company that manufactures its own 97 percent premium composite blend for TruFrac®, which allows for the ability to control quality and consistency throughout the entire process of creating the plug.
“The TruFrac® composite plug has been optimized to provide one of the shortest, smoothest plugs. This results in faster run in-times and reduced mill-out times due to the plugs’ limited metal content and reduced cutting size which allows a cleaner well,” said Mark Hopmann, Vice President of Completions at Weatherford. “In addition, the technology offers improved anchoring and sealing compared to traditional plugs, increasing reliability and mitigating risk in plug-and-perf operations.”
