MorphPackers and Nine Energy Service announce first deployment of REMEDY™ remedial isolation packers for Chaparral Energy in Oklahoma

MorphPackers Limited (“MorphPackers”) and Nine Energy Service, Inc. (“Nine”) announced jointly today that they have deployed REMEDY™ remedial isolation packers within a production-insert string for Chaparral Energy in Oklahoma. 

Due to excessive water production from the heel of the reservoir Chaparral Energy required mechanical isolation in their 4 ½” open-hole production tubing to return the well to oil production.  A 3 ½” flush joint production-insert string fitted with full ID REMEDY™ isolation packers was successfully run to TD and the packers were expanded.  The well was returned to oil production on time & budget immediately afterwards.

Based upon a 10 year old tried, tested and proven design, Morphpackers REMEDY™ packer uses expandable steel technology to provide a low cost technique for instantly isolating perforations, leaking connections and water-cutting.  The REMEDY™ remedial packer provides one of the largest IDs in the market at an affordable price allowing you to mechanically isolate leaks and consider future refracs using standard completion equipment. 

With no moving parts REMEDY™ packers are easy to deploy at a fraction of the cost of expandable liners, patches and conventional straddle systems. 

“This is a very exciting time for MorphPackers as we enter our next stage of development. As a leading independent in the Completions sector, Nine fully recognizes the benefits of our REMEDY™ remedial isolation packer and is committed to bringing the newest technology to its customers making this an ideal partnership,” said Toby Bryce, Director at MorphPackers.  “We believe that significant potential exists in the North American market where the REMEDY™ isolation value proposition is strongly aligned with the strategic goals of unconventional operators where a focus on cost efficiency and field recovery is crucial.”

“We are delighted with the REMEDY™ isolation packer results and deployment by Nine. As a highly reputable deployment partner, Nine will provide MorphPackers with access to its extensive US and Canadian network, assisting the process of bringing our unique refrac and isolation technology to market,” noted Gavin Prise, Chairman of MorphPackers.
