Composite Plugs


Composite Plugs Frac Shield

Because more rig time and interventions means less profit and production delays—especially in challenging horizontal plug-and-perf operations—using the right frac plug is critical.

Our lightweight and durable composite frac plugs combine field-proven slip technology with an advanced molded-element system to overcome the limitations associated with other materials. Our plugs enhance efficiency, prevent wellbore damage, and can perform in diverse well conditions.

Composite Plugs Worker Applying Fluid

Our composite frac plugs enable faster run-in speeds, more efficient milling, and superior sealing and anchoring.

Made from a proprietary blend of 97 percent composite material, our plugs offer better, more versatile performance and avoid wellbore damage. Our plugs are rated for use in environments up to 350°F (176°C) and pressures up to 12,000 psi (82 MPa)—numbers that are remarkable for such lightweight plugs. They can be used to stimulate one or multiple zones in vertical, deviated, horizontal, or multilateral wells. Additionally, the small cuttings can be easily cleaned from wellbores.

Weatherford is the only oilfield services company that manufactures its own composite.

We own and manage the entire development process, which gives us complete control over quality. Our plugs are the culmination of more than 10 years of experience and expertise in composite technology. We have researched, designed, and optimized each component to deliver products—including the FracShield™ and TruFrac™ plugs—that are unparalleled in their strength, efficiency, and ease of use.
