ROGUE™ Composite Frac Plug Case Study

ROGUE™ Composite Frac Plug Exceeds Customers Expectations in the Bakken

PetroFrac Oil Tools / Lateral Completions Case Study


PetroFrac’s ROGUE composite frac plug is the shortest composite frac plug on the market. The ROGUE incorporates a dissolvable flapper for isolation during multistage stimulation instead of a ball. The flapper has a close-on-demand feature that gives the operator the ability to close the flapper when ready. The short length of the plug and the dissolvable flapper greatly reduce the time needed to mill-up and clean the well compared to other plugs on the market.


A major operator in the Bakken had been trialing various frac plugs in an effort to reduce its completion cost in search of a reliable design to:

  • Reduce mill out times
  • Increase run-in-hole speed
  • Increase reliability and hold during frac operations

Previous competitor’s plugs had issues with slipping and an excessive amount of debris in the well after milling.
