NCS Multistage, LLC, has awarded a license for the company's patented resettable packer technology to Thru Tubing Solutions, Inc.
The license allows Thru Tubing to use the NCS packer technology in conjunction with abrasive perforating when performing multistage completions. The resettable packer is a key component of NCS's Multistage Unlimited® frac-isolation system and is deployed on coiled tubing to temporarily isolate a stage from the wellbore below during stimulation. It has been used to successfully stimulate more than 100 000 stages. The license does not encompass using the packer technology in conjunction with sliding sleeves, such as NCS GripShift™ cemented casing sleeves.
