BDSS (Ball Drop Single Sleeve) System
The BDSS system is a ball drop, sliding sleeve activation systems that allows for simple frac stage isolation in either open hole or cemented completion applications.By incorporating the hydraulically actuated Launch sleeve in the first stage, time and safety risk are reduced as pressure opens the flow ports in the first port, reducing the need for perforation guns on location. Once the first zone has been opened and fracturing has completed, subsequent stages may be opened and fractured by dropping progressively larger balls.
The BDSS single stage ball drop design enables completions with up to 36 stages. In addition, high temperature and high pressure options allow for this system to be used in the harshest of all unconventional reserve environments.
BenefitsPacker and sleeve combination provides for a simple open hole completion
Ball drop requires less intervention and complexity in the completion process
Reduces time and cost of completion as compared to plug and perforation completions
The hydraulically actuated Launch sleeve allows the initiation of circulation without perforation
Eliminates need for perforation gun on location
FeaturesFor sizes: 2-7/8” to 5-1/2” completions
Capable for High Temperature, High Pressure, vertical, or horizontal applications
This completion approach can be run as a tie back or incorporate a hanger packer
All components are designed to work in open hole or cemented completions
Ball seat design allows for up to 36 stages
