Downhole Technology Boss Hog frac plugs are short, fast and strong. The result of the latest composite materials science, rigorous testing and an in-depth understanding of the plug-and-perforate completion process, Boss Hog frac plugs deliver a step-change in composite plug performance.
Half the length and weight of most competitive plugs, they can be run at twice the speed (600+ ft/min) and drilled out in less than half the time of other composites while still returning small-sized debris. Boss Hog plugs also require significantly less water volume during pumpdown, and only one pump truck is needed, which means savings between $2,000 and $4,000 per day and in some conditions reducing the need to upgrade to higher-pressure iron. Reduced run time, nonproductive time and drillout time mean earlier production—as much as 2 to 5 days sooner. With these advantages, operators have saved several hundred thousand dollars per well by switching to Boss Hog frac plugs.
More than 190,000 Boss Hog plugs have been installed without damaging the casing and run successfully without presets in major basins throughout the U.S. and Canada, and have held pressures exceeding 10,000 psi during frac stage treatments.
