The APEX™ Ball-in-Place, an all composite fracture isolation plug, is a patent pending pump down frac plug that is capable of performing in the most challenging well bore environments. APEX™ has the ability to be set using conventional wireline methods with Baker, Owen Compact and Disposable Setting Tools.
Its novel design allows it to be the smallest overall size and volume of any composite product on the market with both the 4.5” and 5.5” APEX™ Ball-in-Place composites weighing less than 10 pounds each. Compared to conventional composite plug technologies, operators are able to reduce their drill out debris by up to 50% and eliminate heavy metal cuttings from being left downhole.
The APEX™ Ball-in-Place tool isolates the stage above it by using a frac ball that lands on the large inner bore and provides a full 10,000 psi differential rating between stages at up to 350 degF.
