SECTION II TESTING AT HALLIBURTON JRC
ADVANCED PERFORATING FLOW LABORATORY

Recently, Areco Technology Inc. conducted a Section II Flow Lab Test at Halliburton Jet Research Center. Three tests were performed, including a Barrel Test, Test Shots, and Berea Tests. The results are as follows.

BARREL TEST

Barrel test is used to evaluate EHD size and variation. Test specs:

  • Casing centered in 55 gal. drum and filled with 5000 psi concrete
  • Perforating guns loaded 6spf and eccentered
  • After guns shot, casing removed and perforation exit hole diameter measure

Tested CoFrac™ with 230 and 210 MaxForce RDX shaped charges with 3 ft. 2 ft. load 660 3-1/4 guns 12 holes in 5-1/2 23# casing

Barrel Test Results:

  • A decrease of 12% in EHD variance between the JRC 230 charge and the same charge combined with Propellant Cap (ReCo™ Cap).
  • A noticeable 28% decrease in EHD variance was detected when comparing the results between the 210 Max Force charge by itself, and that being combined with the ReCo™ Cap.

TEST SHOTS

Tested 210 MaxForce RDX with and without ReCo™ Cap. Test specs:

  • Aluminum Billet Target
  • Casing Coupon 5-1/2 23# P-110
  • Overburden pressure 8500 psi (58 Mpa)
  • Well pressure 6500 psi (45 Mpa)
  • Temperature 250 °F (121°C)
  • Simulate 3-3/8” carrier eccentered in casing
  • Casing coupon and target hole sizes were measured
  • CT Scan targets to evaluate tunnel geometry, liner debris, and target penetration

Test Shot Results:

  • Results indicate that by combining ReCo™ Cap with the charges, the perforation tunnels had less loose debris and were cleaner.

BEREA TEST

Tested 210 MaxForce RDX with and without ReCo™ cap. Test specs:

  • Berea Core Target (UCS listed)
  • Casing Coupon 5-1/2 23# P-110
  • Overburden pressure 8500 psi (58 Mpa)
  • Well pressure 6500 psi (45 Mpa)
  • Temperature 250 °F (121°C)
  • Simulate 3-3/8” carrier eccentered in the casing
  • Shots performed Low Side (min. gun clearance) and High Side (max. gun clearance)
  • Casing coupon and target hole sizes were measured
  • CT Scan targets to evaluate tunnel geometry, liner debris, and target penetration
  • Core cut in half and photographed

Berea Results:

  • The results indicate that by combining ReCo™ Cap with the charges, the length of the perforation tunnels increased by 23-27%. Most importantly, the tunnel after CoFrac™ technology is noticeably cleaner.

Halliburton Jet Research Center-Advanced Perforating Flow Laboratory

Test results confirm that with CoFrac, there is a:

  • 12-28% decrease in EHD variance;
  • 23-27% increase in perforation tunnel length;
  • cleaner tunnel with less debris.
