A charge designed for pumpdowns

Successful hydraulic stimulation of reservoirs relies on efficient distribution of treatment fluids and proppant. In order to achieve the most even split of fluid flow between high-side and low-side perforations, consistent holes are required circumferentially around the inner wall of casing. 

The Jet Research Center (JRC) portfolio of MaxForce®-FRAC charges delivers superior consistent holes by providing reduced variance from shot to shot, regardless of fluid clearance and decentralization. 

Fracture initiation is dominated in the near-wellbore region by localized stress fields. Achieving consistent holes on both the upper and lower sides of the well ensures that initial reservoir breakdown has the greatest chance of creating the most efficient, evenly distributed fractures. 

During any pumping operation, the largest holes are more likely to see the most fluid bias. An inefficient fracture could be created due to the fracture initiation point being away from the preferred fracture plane, resulting in increased tortuosity. Applying even treating force to each perforation allows the formation to dictate fracture initiation and growth, while minimizing tortuosity in the near-wellbore region. 

Benefits

  • Improved fluid and proppant distribution 
  • Increased likelihood of efficient fracture initiation 
  • Reduced near-wellbore tortuosity 
  • More effective diversion during stimulation 
  • Greater stimulated reservoir volume

Features

  • Unparalleled experience backed by the industry-leading testing and research team at the JRC Perforating Center of Excellence 
  • Qualification testing to the most rigorous standard in the industry
  • Field-confirmed results, using downhole camera studies of actual onshore hydraulic fracturing wells in the U.S.
