New stage multiplier The new RepeaterPORT sleeve enables fracturing of as many as 60 stages per lateral. The company says that operators can increase stage numbers, increase ultimate recovery, and increase ball seat size, which reduces friction pressures allowing for higher rate treatments. The sleeve increases the number of stages available in the StackFRAC HD system. By using the same size ball, the RepeaterPORT sleeve multiplies the number of available stages that can be fractured allowing for optimization of fracture crews and the use of less fracture fluid. There are a variety of ball seat sizes, allowing numerous stages to be run in sequence. Source: Packers Plus Energy Services In...
