The Advanced Perforating Flow Laboratory routinely conducts experiments in accordance with both Sections 2 and 4, of the API RP19B. Going further, operators often choose to conduct APFL tests at conditions matching their specific downhole environment. These are generally different – and often go well beyond – the standard test conditions. By evaluating charge performance at your reservoir conditions, you can use APFL testing to develop optimized charges tailored specifically for your reservoir.
JRC provides a full line of API tests including perforating system testing, shaped charge performance, flow performance, and more.
Evaluate charge performance at your reservoir conditions, and use APFL testing to develop optimized charges tailored specifically for your reservoir.
Perform fast, accurate, and representative testing to provide the answers needed for making the best operational decisions.
In the Caspian Sea, perforating and completion techniques damaged productivity in an operator’s largest field. In response, JRC developed a specialized shaped charge to maximize downhole penetration specific to the reservoir and wellbore environment. After testing at the APFL, the charge resulted in a 41% increase in clean perforation tunnels and a 34% increase in total core penetration depth.
