The Multistage Unlimited system from NCS Energy Services expedites multistage completions, improves frac results, and conserves water and chemicals by combining a resettable frac-isolation assembly deployed on coiled tubing with proprietary grip/shift sleeves.

NCS Oilfield Services, a company that specializes in multistage completions, recently announced the successful placement of 50 stages in a single well completion in the Bakken. The deployment demonstrates the reliability of its Multistage Unlimited system by repeating that feat in three consecutive wellbores, according to NCS.

“The application of our Multistage Unlimited system in two-mile laterals provides operators with the ability to access more of their reservoir with fewer wellbores,” Eric Schmelzl, NCS vice president of strategic business, said. “By successfully completing three consecutive two-mile laterals, we have demonstrated our ability to execute that style of completion without any extra tool trips while maintaining an unobstructed wellbore.”

“At NCS, we believe that the savings in both job time and fluid usage makes the application of our frac sleeves a good environmental decision and represents a potential cost saving to operators who adopt this method in their well completions,” Mr Schmelzl commented.
