Improved surface efficiency and downhole reliability
The Velocity™ perforating system provides safe, fast, efficient, and reliable perforating operations. It offers improved wellsite surface efficiency and downhole reliability during perforating, enabling increased pumping time for frac.
Continued evolutions in completions technology often require more guns to be deployed on each stage. The Velocity system can be prepared more easily and in less time than traditional guns. At the same time, it reduces the overall weight and makeup length.
In the fast-paced environment of pumpdown perforating, minimizing equipment complexity and improving run rate efficiencies are vital for operational success. The Velocity gun system features a unique modular design and plug-and-play detonators. It doesn’t require any field wiring of guns, detonators, or igniters. Velocity guns are fully addressable, and communication problems can be identified well before a gun is fired. Additionally, the Velocity gun system can be fully verified on surface and at any time during the gun descent.
In the event there is a misfired gun, digital switches allow the problem gun to be skipped, and operations can continue uninterrupted. Due to the plug-and-play setup, errors associated with field wiring are eliminated, and potential leak paths are reduced.
