It has been demonstrated by lab and surface testing and confirmed by field test results that the ReCo™ Charge comprised of a standard shaped charge and a solid propellant cap will enhance the perforating event.  The ReCo™ Cap design allows the solid propellant to be deposited into the perforation tunnel before deflagration; therefore, maximizing energy impact to the crushed zone and formation.  The addition of ReCo™ Cap to the shaped charge will increase entry hole diameter, deepen penetration, enlarge perforation tunnel volume and fracture reservoir rock.

Production Enhancer

CoFrac™ technology combines any regular shaped charge with the ReCo™ Cap to enhance perforation, reduce the cost of well completion operations, and increase production output.

The result is a cleaner perforation with higher permeability and lower skin.  These perforations reduce tortuosity during hydraulic fracturing, lowering treatment pressure and improving proppant placement.  Lab results also show a lowered entry-hole diameter (EHD) variance, which signifies that each perforation is more likely to take equal volumes of fluid and proppant; therefore, improving perforation cluster efficiency.
