Description

Bulldog™ Frac single-open (SO) sleeves were developed from our successful North Sea i-Valve technology, which features a mechanical-shift, single-open sleeve specifically designed for horizontal multistage land applications. The Bulldog Frac sleeve is activated using the proprietary Bulldog Frac bottomhole assembly (BHA), which allows operators to locate, shift open, isolate, and stimulate each stage with the help of a multiset packer. Pumping down the coiled tubing annulus permits higher pumping rates and allows for better understanding of fracture geometry and dynamics.

The Bulldog Frac sleeve is compact, light, and easy to handle, which improves makeup times and reduces safety risks. Because it is a mere 24 in. (610 mm) in length, no pup joints are required. The design of the Bulldog Frac sleeve is full bore and includes a large flow area of 10.5 in.2, a 45% increase over similar products. This means operators can remove choke points for their production while maximizing stimulation flow rates.
