Case study details

A customer in Egypt wanted a sand control solution for a deepwater offshore field development. Conventional sand control methods were not cost effective and posed significant risks during installations because of the complexity of the tools. As a result of the tool limitations, these installations required significant time.

To overcome these challenges, the customer reached out to Baker Hughes for a solution. Baker Hughes recommended the SC-XPTM Prime gravel- and frac-packing system. The SC-XP frac-pack system provides a versatile, cost effective, and efficient sand control solution for multiple applications via a single platform. In addition to featuring the robust SC-XP setting tool, crossover tool, and shifting tool, the system leverages proven packer and frac-pack extension technology.
