Ø5.5 Bear Claw® Drillable High Pressure Composite Plugs 300 °F/14,000 psi [149 °C/96.5 MPa]

Features and Benefits

Bear Claw® High Pressure/High Temperature Drillable Composite Plugs are used for multiple zonal isolation in Ø5.5 diameter cased holes.
 

Materials:

  • Aerospace grade composite materials with high temperature and chemical resistance. 
  • High temperature thermoplastics replace brass and other non-ferrous metals.
  • Ecner Array - the design is proven in the retrievable packer industry. Ecner arrays use a premium, high temperature, chemically resistant center element with rubber/stainless steel mesh outer elements.

Gripping Power

  • Full circumference gray cast iron slips.
  • More gripping teeth per slip compared to many competitive products.
  • Serrated tooth design cuts through scale and dirt.
  • Plug mandrel is secured via a ratcheting mechanism.

Drill Out

  • Reduces drill out time and casing damage.
  • Typical total drill out times are 20 to 40 minutes.
  • Low density non-metallic cuttings circulate quickly and easily back to the surface

Field Configurable

  • Bear Claw® plugs can be shipped from the factory as frac, drop ball or bridge plugs.
  • Alternately, frac and drop ball plugs can be configured at the well site using a hammer and punched.
  • Density of provided phenolic ball is 1.32 g/cc. Other densities are available on request

Running and Setting Procedures:

  • Run speeds up to 300 ft/min [100 m/min] depending on well conditions.
  • Composite plug attachment to setting tool uses tools and procedures familiar to wireline crews
  • Ø5.5 plugs use Baker No. 20 or Titan 3 setting tools with Exelis-designed setting adapters.
  • Use quick burning or standard (less than 10 seconds) power charges.

    Composite Plug Ratings:

    Bear Claw® Drillable Plugs have been tested by an independent test laboratory and are rated to 300 °F [149 °C] and 14,000 psi [96.5 MPa (above)/10,000 psi [68.9 MPa] (below).
     
    This design has passed a week long endurance test of 10,000 psi [68.95 MPa] at 300 °F [149 °C].
