Description

Our patented BPS™ (Burst Port System) features a casing collar with premilled frac ports designed to open at precise pressures, providing operators more control over the diversion of their fractures.

BPS uses our selective stimulation straddle tool technology, allowing repeatable, selective isolation of downhole intervals for pinpoint stimulation treatments. Once hydraulic fracturing of the zone is completed, the tool can be quickly repositioned to the next BPS casing collar to repeat the process. The straddle tool can be pulled out of the well once completed, allowing immediate production without the need to drill out plugs or ball seats.

The BPS is typically used in horizontal multistage completions, where ball-drop fracture treatments are not desirable.
