QCI's penetrator system solution avoids costly pulls while fracing

4/23/2019

HOUSTON -- QCI has announced the rollout of a 10K psi ESP surface penetrator system, the QCI P5-10K, that eliminates the need and expense of pulling an ESP system on multi-well pads when fracing in close proximity. This new penetrator is an enhancement of their trusted QCI P5 penetrator that has performed in the harshest oilfield conditions around the world since 1991. QCI is the first company to develop and get a fully listed and certified penetrator solution that resists downhole pressures of offset fracs up to 10,000 psi.

"Driven by customer requests for a method to protect ESP wells associated with failures caused by offset fracs, we developed an economic solution," shared Todd McGee, QCI Sales Director. "Typically in multi-pad drills, operators will pull their ESP pumps on adjacent wells during fracking to mitigate potential damage to the well and ESP equipment. To pull a pump and re-run it on a well can cost upwards of $250K not taking into account the production loss, resource strains, additional exposure of onsite services and safety issues that can arise. The QCI P5-10K matches the pressure of typical frac wellhead ratings and offers an economical alternative to pulling the ESP pumps."
