Technology company Delphian Ballistics’ successful project completion in the USA has affirmed the merits of its TriStim well perforation system.

Technology company Delphian Ballistics’ successful project completion in the U.S. has affirmed the merits of its TriStim well perforation system.

Fresh from finishing onshore fracking activity in the state of Oklahoma, Delphian’s team was invited to present at the Society of Petroleum Engineers Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition (SPE ATCE) in Houston.

The firm designed a well perforating gun system, TriStim, which has been proven to increase well productivity by up to 50 percent, with the capability to significantly enhance fracture dynamics. It is also part of the solution to maximise production from ageing infrastructure.

Paul Lynch, vice-president of global technical sales, explains the milestones the firm has reached. “Delphian has a technology that oil services companies see as a differentiator in the worldwide battle between efficient extraction of hydrocarbons and costs. U.S. and UK operators who signed collaboration agreements for the use of TriStim following its launch in 2014 are already seeing the benefits.

Stuart McLeod, managing director of Delphian Ballistics, said, "Delphian has come a long way since first developing TriStim and our dedicated team continues to deliver on every project. The technical capabilities of  TriStim, created from an understanding of the physics of ballistics which harnesses shockwaves to produce a cleaner, bigger, deeper hole are now well documented and understood. We are pleased to be part of this latest conference amongst the exceptional innovations of our peers."

The firm’s recent projects in Louisiana and Oklahoma have been evaluated and yielded benefits to operators in both carbonate and shale formations, with excellent results observed in fracturing operations.  Further work is already scheduled and is expected to show repeated benefits.
