Paper presented at the SPE Eastern Regional Meeting, October 15–17, 2019
Paper Number: SPE-196584-MS
... Plugs for Zonal Isolation Operators set composite frac or bridge plugs (or frac plugs) to isolate zones for well completion stimulations. These plugs are often used in horizontal completions to produce hydrocarbons in shale formations. In some years, there may be as many as 100,000 composite plugs...

Abstract The modern hydraulic fracturing process in unconventional shales has relied mainly on the use of mechanical isolation techniques (frac plugs) for internal isolation in between multi-cluster perforated frac stages. Significant benefits exist if mechanical frac plugs can be successfully...
