Industry's most accurate, compact, and versatile system for orienting perforations in fiber-optic completions

With the increase of fiber-optic installations in unconventional wells to achieve better understandings of well completions and production, it is critical to accurately orient perforations to avoid damaging fiber-optic cable.

The Velocity Revolve oriented gun system gives operators the ability to confidently orient perforations within 5° of the desired perforating azimuth, which is more precise than the leading competitive system on the market. The ability to align the perforating charge tube by using internally oriented components eliminates the need for externally oriented hardware, such as eccentered weight bars, which can also increase complexity and unreliability.
