Tartan Energy Group’s EnerFrac™ single-entry, ball-drop system uses patented EnerFrac hydro-mechanical sleeves that are designed to stimulate individual stages at high rate. EnerFrac sleeves feature patent-pending BurstPoint™ ports, which fully open by increasing hydraulic pressure after the sleeve is shifted by an activation ball. This instantaneously releases the energy stored by the hydraulic pressure in the tubing to provide a more penetrating treatment, resulting in a deeper fracture network and increased production.
No communication with the wellbore exists until the BurstPoint ports are opened, which is then followed by the stimulation process. This “on-the-fly” operation enables quick completion of the well stimulation, increasing efficiency and reducing costs.
