DUG Debut of Choice Completion Systems Introduces High Efficiency Completion Technologies
Patent-Pending Hydraulic Fracturing Plug and Toe Actuator Sleeves are Unveiled
Houston, TX (Thursday, July 7, 2016) – Newly formed Choice Completion Systems (Choice) is now supplying critical technology for improving the efficiency of completing conventional and unconventional oil and gas wells. The announcement was made June 22, 2016 at Hart Energy’s DUG East conference in Pittsburgh, PA.
Choice is comprised of a veteran group of three completion experts, each with a strong entrepreneurial history of managing and developing successful companies. This team’s edge is their expertise in engineering innovation as seen through their combined list of patented technologies. Between them, the 3-man team holds more than 20 patents and patents pending.
The products and rental tools that Choice offers are key components in completing conventional and unconventional wells. The company’s headquarters and technology center is located in Houston, Texas. Choice currently provides service for its customers from three facilities strategically located in West Texas, South Texas and East Texas. Current plans call for rapid expansion into other active US/North American oil and gas regions.
Unique technologies introduced by Choice are focused on reducing the cost and improving the efficiency of hydraulically fractured completions, a major expense in producing the well. At the 2016 DUG East conference, the company unveiled its patent-pending Razorback hydraulic fracturing plug used to provide zonal isolation during multi-stage completions. Constructed of 100% composite materials, the plug reduces drill out time and debris by up to 80%. Choice also exhibited two innovative toe actuator sleeves—a standard and cycling sleeve—designed to provide an economic and reliable option to unconventional solutions.
“At Choice, our design approach as an engineering team involves providing simple solutions to solve complex problems” explains Kenny Anton, Vice President of Engineering. “We find simple solutions are the most economical for our customers.”
“At a time when the industry is struggling, we are thrilled to introduce new technology to cut costs and improve efficiency,” explains Choice COO, Wes Pixley. “The recent upturn in activity means our technology is ready to provide value that is critical to controlling the cost and improving the performance of completions.” Pixley, a 35-year industry veteran, previously owned and sold two successful start-up completion companies.
Michael Harris, Choice’s Vice President of Business Development, comments, “Our fresh approach to solving completion challenges is creating an operational step change for our customers. We apply a practical focus to creating engineered solutions, while keeping our customer’s needs paramount. Central to this is a service network that is logistically convenient and knowledgeable.” Harris is the former VP of Engineering and Manufacturing of a large domestic completions company. He individually holds 6 US Patents and 13 Pending US Patent applications and is a recent recipient of a Hart Meritorious Award for Engineering Innovation, the industry’s most established and widely respected engineering award.
