The major market is captured by workover services which involve the use of the hydraulic workover units on dead wells (wells that are not producing while the intervention operation is being carried out).
Used widely on land, fracking also is employed at offshore wells to explore for new deposits and to stimulate old, dead wells to new production.
Both wells represent a very rigorous test for Calliope in terms of the challenge of reviving dead wells that have reservoir damage, including damage from the "parting shot" of a previous operator.
With that in mind, this year we have installed Calliope on one marginal and three completely dead wells ranging in depth from 11,100 to 18,400 feet.
CREDO has proven the effectiveness of the technology over a wide range of depths (down to 18,600 feet) and applications, including the most rigorous scenario of completely dead wells.
The technology is proven to work in a wide range of depths (down to 18,600 feet) and applications, including the most rigorous scenario of completely dead wells.

Three Calliope applications (all on dead wells that were scheduled to be plugged and abandoned) now represent CREDO's first, fifth and sixth most valuable properties.
Two of the applications were on dead wells -- one for six years -- that were scheduled to be plugged and abandoned.
