In the manufacturing process, JRC emphasizes quality and consistency, resulting in a continual progression toward automation. This produces a more accurate and consistent charge, while at the same time providing a more cost-effective, safer production process.

Perforating Shaped Charges

JRC perforating shaped charges lead the industry in quality, reliability, and performance. Our ballistics engineers continue to develop and manufacture perforating systems for virtually any reservoir environment or intervention technique.

JRC also offers the expertise to develop custom charges to maximize effective penetration for your specific reservoir.

MaxForce® Family of Shaped Perforating Charges

JRC engineered the line of MaxForce® shaped perforating charges to help ensure perforation size performance, even if the perforating guns are lying on the low side of the completion casing string. This family of ultradeep-penetrating shaped charges delivers maximum propulsion with increased reliability and safety, even under extreme downhole conditions. The industry's deepest penetrating perforation charge relies on an improved liner geometry, proprietary liner composition, and patented case technology to help optimize uniform stimulation and accelerate production.

Dominator® Charge

Dominator® charges were developed at the Advanced Perforating Flow Laboratory (APFL) by firing perforating charges into actual rock under simulated downhole conditions that included rock effective stress, wellbore underbalance, and rock pore pressure. By analyzing post-shot results from the testing program, it was possible to rapidly develop a charge with favorable jet characteristics. Using the APFL in the design process also avoided the pitfalls associated with translating data from surface concrete targets to productivity estimations in downhole reservoirs.

The improvement in penetration performance is evident from the results. In one example, penetration increased by an average of 52% in the gas-filled samples and by an average of 37% in liquid-filled samples. These penetration results, along with improvement in core flow efficiency, contribute to increased flow performance. Dominator charges are available in a few variations and manufactured at JRC.

The charge manufacturing process uses laser markers to etch every charge case with a unique identifier, product number, date of manufacture, and other data that provides traceability for quality control and the ability to track for compliance with federal, country, and various military governing bodies globally.
