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 Halliburton 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.

|Velocity Revolve||Competing Systems||Benefits of Velocity Revolve Systems|
|Internally oriented mechanism||Reliance on eccentered weight bars and subs||
|Modular platform||Loading, assembly, and/ or wiring required on location||
|Accurate within 5° of desired angle||Accuracy known to be more than 60° off in some cases||
|Shortest BHA in the industry||Requires longer guns and additional hardware||
|Multiple perforation charge specifications||Often limited to a single perforation charge specification||
