Tech Report: BHP Billiton Deploys 467 Fractal System Guns with 99.1% Reliability

Fractal multistage stimulation perforating system provides unmatched safety and efficiency

BHP Billiton Deploys 467 Fractal System Guns with 99.1% Reliability

Publication Date: 03/01/2016

Approximately 35% of all gun failures are related to wiring or flooding. To improve the overall efficiency of multistage stimulation and perforating, BHP Billiton decided to deploy 402 Fractal multistage stimulation perforating systems in the Eagle Ford and 65 in the Permian basin as a field test. 

The Fractal system reduces the likelihood of misruns by up to 77% when compared with conventional systems. To address issues experienced by conventional perforating systems, the Fractal system features prewired guns to eliminate wiring connections and errors in the field.
