Case Study: Illusion® Frac Plug Helps Eliminate High-Risk Millout Operations

Operator removes risk of intervening in a depleted wellbore when milling out composite plugs

Illusion Frac PlugCHALLENGE – For upcoming high-density well-spacing trials, the operator primarily wanted to remove the risk of intervening in the depleted wellbore when milling out composite frac plugs. Those risks, unmitigated, can put higher-density drilling programs at risk due to the steep costs and time delays created when millout challenges are encountered.

SOLUTION – Halliburton recommended Illusion frac plugs as an alternative to the traditional composite frac plugs being provided by another service company. Illusion frac plugs are fully dissolvable and help eliminate the need for intervention prior to putting the well onto production.

This high-performance frac plug provides zonal isolation for pump-down applications during
wellbore stimulation, and combines Halliburton’s industry-leading frac plug designs with the most advanced dissolvable metal and rubber materials. The large-bore ID allows operators to produce through the plug while it remains in the wellbore and begins the dissolution process immediately following fracturing.
