I really enjoyed the videos you posted providing (5-minute) explanations on multi-stage hydraulic fracturing. I do some training and would like to refer people to your links for these instructional videos. Please add me to your blog circulation.
Thank you for the feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed the videos and find them useful for your training. Please feel free to share the videos and let me know if you have any suggestions for future videos. As requested, I have you added to my email circulation.
The video is really nicely made and easy to understand. Thanks for that. My question is after setting the plug, don't we need to pressure test the plug first to see if it holds before going for next set of perforations?
Thank you for the feedback and the kind words.
It depends on what type of plug you are running, a self-isolating plug or a ball-isolating plug. If you were to run the self-isolating plug, you would want to pressure test the plug before firing the perforations. With a ball-isolating plug you do not have that option, because you don't have isolation until a ball is pumped onto the plug. The ball-isolated plug is the most commonly used, so often times it is not in operator's procedures to pressure test before firing the perforations.
In the future I will do a video blog about the two types of plugs and the applications of each. Be sure to keep in touch with me via LinkedIn or my email circulation for upcoming blogs.
I wanted to let you know that I just posted a new video blog that goes into a more detailed explanation of your question:
Let me know if that answers all of your question and if you have any further questions.
Please add me to your blog updates.
