TORRENT Openhole Gravel-Pack Solution

Improve packing efficiency and streamline operations

Maximize packing efficiency and improve the economics of gravel-packing operations with the TORRENT™ openhole gravel-pack (OHGP) solution. The solution combines a premium multipath gravel-pack screen, specialized ultralightweight proppant, and a reliable gravel-pack system to help achieve 99%+ packing efficiency in one simplified, integrated operation.

Overcome obstructions and simplify installation

The EXCELLPAK™ multipath screen provides multiple interconnected flow paths to Transport slurry over the entire length of the screen regardless of annular barriers to ensure a complete and uniform gravel pack. And a proprietary cross-coupling connector system offers quick and efficient screen joint make-up, reducing rig time and crew exposure

Streamline operations and reduce HSE risk

The unique properties of LiteProp™ ultralightweight proppants keep it suspended during pumping and reduce friction for added efficiency in long, horizontal applications. No damaging gels or breaker additives are required, eliminating the need for specialized blending and pumping equipment, along with the time and risk associated with complex formulation. And Long-term packing efficiency is also improved because the gravel-pack does not have to be “broken” once packing operations are complete.

Increase reliability and efficiency

The SC-XP™ gravel-frac-pack system features a swab-resistant V0-rated packer element that enables faster conveyance rates for improved rigsite efficiency. And the SC-XP system’s crossover tool supports set-down weight in all tool positions to provide positive location and increase reliability.

The TORRENT OHGP solution is backed by a comprehensive portfolio of pumping equipment and services and modeling software to ensure safe and effective operations.
