The Cyclone Toe Initiation Port is designed to provide an economic means to initiate communication with the reservoir.
Usually placed at the toe of the well, the Cyclone is activated when hydraulic pressure is applied to the casing string. Once opened, a flow path is initiated to the reservoir facilitating pump down operations or even the placement of an initial stimulation treatment.
The Cyclone’s port configuration promotes easy access to the reservoir with 360 degree port coverage. The use of a toe port initiation sub eliminates the requirements for an initial coil tubing trip to initiate pump down operations, resulting in cost savings.
The Cyclone includes an integral ball seat within the tool that allows for a pressure test after activation, allowing the casing to be tested to its rating. By implementing ShearPlus Shear Pins, the accuracy of the burst pressure can be held within +/- 12.5%. ShearPlus Shear Pins use premium materials that yield more stable shear pressures with varying temperatures and are available in 500 psi increments.
