As with any flow-back operation, particularly those of gas producing wells, the number of shut-ins relies heavily on the type of equipment that can handle high pressures. Disruptions in the flow stream greatly reduce the efficiency of any operation.
Flowing back after fracturing is especially problematic due to the composition of mud, balls, and sealers that comes up. Without the proper equipment, manifolds and other surface equipment can quickly clog resulting in costly down time.
To eliminate these problems, the OSES ball catcher traps frac balls with outer diameters up to 3-7/8”. Handling working pressures from 5,000 to 15,000 PSI, these durable apparatuses significantly reduce flow-back disruptions after fracture.
