Page last modified
June 17 2024

Filtrex, is a cost-effective, single trip conformable thru-tubing sand control solution, designed to eliminate the need to perform workovers. Its use results in decreased intervention time and associated run charges when compared to traditional methodologies.

Filtrex provides the flexibility to be installed beyond tight restrictions, whilst offering compliance to the damaged section once set, resulting in controlled sand production and improved well performance. The ability to perform sand clean out during deployment, reducing intervention trips, is unique to the industry.
