In an unconventional completion, it is important to utilize as many of the open perforations as possible to optimize fluid and proppant placement in a formation. Data suggests that orienting all perforations along the same azimuth in the casing helps to ensure that perforations are as uniform as possible, making the treatment more effective. For high-volume, high-efficiency applications, such as orienting perforations in non-fiber-optic wells, the Velocity Aligned gun system provides an economic option for orienting perforations in 2.5° increments around the casing circumference. This accurate and efficient system is fully adjustable at the wellsite.
