Perforating

Maximum reservoir productivity in new or existing wells

Perf lab

Our engineered perforating systems help you achieve the best production or injection in your well by optimizing the relationship between the gun system, wellbore, and your reservoir. The SPAN Rock rock-based penetration model incorporates our extensive research in stressed-rock perforating for accurately predicting perforator performance downhole in reservoir rock. The resulting performance gains are documented in API RP 19B Section 1 data. 

Deliver the best productivity from your completion with Schlumberger perforating systems:

  • measure to fully characterize the reservoir rock and fluids 
  • perforate with the optimal gun system and charges specified by the SPAN Rock model
  • clean the perforations by controlling wellbore dynamics while perforating 
  • monitor to maximize reservoir productivity.

Laboratory Services

The Productivity Enhancement Research Facility (PERF) brings together the industry’s most technologically advanced testing systems and expert staff to directly determine how your reservoir will perform when perforated, reducing risk and optimizing recovery.

Perforating Design

No longer do you need to guess how perforating changes will perform in your wells. By holistically accounting for the well, fluid, and formation environment, perforating design integrates shaped charges and perforating gun systems to minimize damage and maximize the wellbore-to-reservoir connection.

Shaped Charges

Whether for the deepest penetration, big hole, or uniform perforating applications, our shaped charges are performance tested at reservoir conditions so you can optimize your well’s completion—and productivity.

Gun Systems

We engineer our perforating guns as systems that integrate the carriers, shaped charges, and accessories—with all components manufactured to rigorous QC standards.
