HOUSTON – Halliburton (NYSE:HAL) has opened its new Advanced Perforating Flow Lab in Alvarado, Texas. This new laboratory expands Halliburton’s research, development, and testing capabilities to simulate extreme reservoir conditions.

The facility includes four independent testing rooms, an integrated command and control center, a core preparation laboratory, and an extensive perforated core analysis laboratory for post-test evaluation.

Among the lab’s technologies are flow vessels with the ability to conduct tests that simulate downhole reservoir conditions, including pressures and temperatures with a maximum rating of 50,000 psi (345 MPa) and 400ºF (204ºC); test vessels with the ability to rotate 180º to perform gravity-related sanding studies; and a perforated core analysis laboratory that utilizes the latest computed tomography imaging to evaluate perforator performance and reservoir inflow.
