Permian Basin Lateral Well

Drilling out 104 frac plugs in one 88-hour trip


Repeat Precision optimized the plug-and-perf efficiency for a large oil and gas company in the Permian Basin, with a focus on reducing cost, running and drill-out times, and the risk of failure for extended-reach lateral applications.

The PurpleSeal™ all-composite frac plugs were used for drilling the Permian Basin lateral well in Texas.


We used the PurpleSeal™ all-composite frac plug, which is rated up to 10,000 PSI and has proprietary high-strength composite materials to ensure uniform performance and durability. Interlocking castellations on the slips and end caps and a contoured slip-to-cone interface eliminates component rotation to ensure even, concentric slip expansion. With minimal metallic content (approximately 1%), PurpleSeal™ frac plugs consistently drill out in 8 minutes or less.

Immediately after the fracturing operation was successfully completed, the operator drilled out more than 100 composite frac plugs in a single trip in less than 88 hours. No motor stalls were reported, and plug debris size was ideal and consistent from the first plug to the last.

After the job, the bit showed normal wear on the inserts. PurpleSeal™ frac plugs delivered similar drill-out performance in four additional wells on the same pad. The same drilling BHA and procedure were used for all the wells.
