GEODynamics releases new perforating system

 Offshore staff

FORT WORTH, Texas – GEODynamics Inc.’s Engineered Perforating Solutions Division has completed field testing of the latest addition to its family of “Plug and Perf” technology based products. The FracIQ limited entry perforating system has been applied in more than 1,000 frac stages since field testing began in April 2016.

The company says the patent-pending FracIQ perforating system generates constant and consistent perforating entry holes and penetration depths in wells regardless of gun position, well casing, or formation type including offshore.

Constant sized casing holes improve fracture planning by providing optimum pressure diversion while constant rock penetration creates repeatable breakdown pressures. Optimum pressure diversion means better fracture treatments, lower costs, and ultimately more productive wells.

The new system is available in 0.30-in., 0.35-in., and 0.40-in. holes sizes and with GEODynamics’ IQ Gun System technology for optimum shots placement.

David Ambler, perforating product line manager, said: “After significant investment in research and development, our engineering team has developed a new perforating product that many thought was impossible. Operators have reported that wells shot with FracIQ using the IQ Gun Systems have improved fracturing predictability and has led to better wells.”
