Perforating Gun Systems and Charges

Engineered perforating: Guns and charges optimized for the wellbore, reservoir, fluids, and completion geometry

Because maximized productivity from your well depends on getting the perforations right—located in the productive interval, correctly oriented, deep, and clean—our hollow carrier and capsule perforating guns are engineered systems that are optimized for the wellbore environment, reservoir, and completion geometry. 

Manufactured for consistent high performance

Regardless of the type of gun or perforating application, optimized gun performance begins with design and manufacturing QC, as verified by testing.

The most critical part of the gun system to manufacture with maximum quality consistency is the shaped charge, which is assembled from four components: case, main explosive pellet, primer, and liner. We manufacture each charge component to exact tolerances to ensure that the liner collapses to form the jet according to the design. For routine manufacturing production runs, each charge must perform to a minimum target penetration standard related to API RP 19B Section 1.

Expanded-Range Wireline Perforating System

The XR-Perf system expands the range of wireline perforating to deviated and complex wells and for conveying long, heavy toolstrings.

WellWatcher Contact Multistage Stimulation Assurance System
The WellWatcher Contact system uses permanently installed multifiber cable on the casing to acquire DAS, DTS, and optional pressure data during multistage stimulation operations to confirm that the stages, clusters, and perforations are responding as expected. Visit WellWatcher Contact System page
