In just over four months STEP’s QNT 3000 Thunder Pump has worked for eight clients, on 10 wells, with a total of 4,534 cycles per hour, without any downtime.
With the increasing number of horizontal wells and multistage fractures needed to access unconventional resources, producers in the WCSB are looking at alternative well designs to maximize production economically.
In August 2014, an oil and gas operator with assets in the Duvernay play requested STEP’s engineering team analyze the feasibility of milling out composite bridge plugs using 60.3mm (2-3/8”) outer diameter coiled tubing (CT) 7,400m (24,278ft) in length.
With the growing trend toward wells with long, challenging horizontal segments requiring multistage hydraulic-fracture stimulation treatments, completion operations play a critical role in the production of the well.
A Calgary based, mid-size oil producer working in southwest Saskatchewan was looking for a unique solution that would allow them to frac through coil with a high enough flow rate to be successful.
In late 2014, a junior E&P company operating in the Kakwa region of the Montney was eager to find an effective completion technology in response to operational challenges commonly found in the region.
What was once considered impossible using coiled tubing due to extended reach and set-down force is now possible thanks to STEP’s fit-for-purpose equipment and operational efficiencies.
STEP’s technical specialists conducted a thorough analysis and developed a plan to run a customdesigned 73mm (2-7/8”) string with a 0.250” wall, coupled with an in-depth monitoring and string management program.
STEP’s Maintenance Department helps to reduce non-productive time (NPT) by focusing on predictive and preventative maintenance techniques and utilizing root cause and post failure strategies.
