Explosive Devices - Jet Research Center®

Perforation Flow Lab Services

Our world-class Jet Research Center (JRC®) and Advanced Perforating Flow Lab
(APFL) comprise our Perforating Center of Excellence. Located in Alvarado, Texas, the
JRC facility is capable of testing well environments over the widest dynamic measurement range of any test facility in the world.

We use rock, fluid, and mechanical analysis to provide the necessary information to design and execute your production, completion, and plug and abandonment strategies in conventional and unconventional reservoirs.   

We help to address the increasing complexity of your reservoirs through the in-depth dynamic understanding of charge and mechanical performance. This enhances the decision efficiency and effectiveness of the drilling, development, and end-of-well-life phase of your assets. 

The JRC facility houses a full-service testing laboratory that offers advanced product testing and development services for perforating and pipe recovery systems.

Our perforating center of excellence team specializes in:

  • Reservoir rock property analyses
  • Reservoir sanding analyses
  • Explosive characterization and performance analyses
  • HPHT testing services
  • Product defect investigations and failure analysis
  • Perforating solution development and laboratory analysis
