DynaSelect selective perforating systems allow wireline and perforating service companies to lower risk and total cost of completions requiring multiple guns to be fired on a single trip into a well.
The system is announced to have surpassed 250,000 perforating shots fired without a safety incident.
DynaSelect "includes the world's first and only fully integrated switch-detonator," declares its manufacturer. Unlike traditional designs, it requires a series of specific digital codes to initiate so stray voltage/current, RF signals, or other energy sources cannot unintentionally initiate the detonator or igniter. A gun can't be fired unless coded signals are received from a firing panel at surface.
