Forum MicroPlug™

The Forum MicroPlug™ boosts the efficiency of plug and perf applications and provides a low cost/low risk diversion solution for initial completions and re-frac optimization. Using the MicroPlug, operators can safely, quickly and inexpensively access 65% of stranded reserves in their horizontal wells. The 1.2 specific gravity weight allows the MicroPlug to be brought back to the surface without any additional well intervention. Operators also have greater control of their well bore pressure by sealing off perforation holes, rather than sealing off the entire well bore ID.

The MicroPlug is an effective diversion technology that is economic and easily deployable to increase stimulated rock volume in new and existing wells.

Benefits
  • Able to seal perforation diameters from .310″ to .444″ at up to 10,000 psi pressure differential
