CONSISTENT HOLE SIZES TO EQUALIZE

PERFORATION FRICTION AND MINIMIZE

THE EFFECTS OF TORTUOSITY

"Bravo Natural Resources has been testing various diverter technologies and since switching to the Owen Oil Tools HERO®PerFRAC charge we have seen a more consistent calculated number of holes open after step down tests before introducing the diverter. It appears that the uncertainty around hole size has been reduced by using the HERO®PerFRAC equal hole size charge.”

HERO®PerFRAC is the latest generation HERO® charge specifically designed to improve the efficiency of fracturing operations in today’s unconventional reservoirs. HERO®PerFRAC charges produce consistent entry hole sizes, regardless of gun position, to allow fracture initiation to occur at the face of the borehole. Utilizing HERO® super deep penetrating technology enables fracture initiation along the perforation tunnel at intersecting natural fractures. HERO®PerFRAC charges have been tested to verify that entry hole size performance is not affected by hydrostatic pressure, and penetration performance has been verified in stressed natural rock, including shale.
