Stage Completions (USA) Corporation (“Stage” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce a record setting 142-stage completion, with the 5.5” Bowhead II Sliding Sleeve System (“Bowhead II system”) in the Permian basin. The fracturing operation was completed in 4.3 days (34 stages per day), placing 9.2 million lb (4,600 tons) of sand at a maximum concentration of 4 ppg (480 kg/m3), and a maximum pump rate of 60 bbl/min (9.54 m3/min), with an average horsepower requirement of 4300 hp.

The Bowhead II system runs a dissolvable ball on collet that activates sliding sleeves. The Bowhead II system has a constant ID through the wellbore that is cementable in place and allows for longer laterals, tighter spacing, higher pump rates, reduced HHP requirements, optimized water volumes for completions, and higher sand concentration. The Bowhead II system provides continuous pinpoint fracturing capability to operators without wireline or coiled tubing.

The Bowhead II system offers clear technical advantages with respect to controlled fracture placement and stimulation efficiency. Mr. Sean Campbell, President of Stage, stated, “The trending emphasis on choosing the best completion practice for each well application should lead the industry as a whole to favor the Bowhead II system. Stage strives to remain a leading technology innovator and continues to differentiate itself in the industry. Operators have placed a high priority on completion efficiencies that directly impact estimated ultimate recovery and return on investment during a well’s life cycle. Post this large-scale completion, several operators are planning wells utilizing the 5.5” Bowhead II system.”
