The STIMGUN® technology is best understood as an engineered job design process
that integrates the use of the products with computer modeling known as PulsFrac™
and using the high speed gauge for data acquisition. That is where the science gives
STIMGUN® the advantage. Unlike others, the STIMGUN® technology takes into
account well fluids, well mechanics and rock properties to select the optimum tool
for each application.
The STIMGUN® family of products currently consist of three tool configurations:
- STIMGUN® assembly,
a special molded sleeve of non-explosive propellant material (resembles PVC pipe)
that is placed over a scalloped perforating gun assembly, which allows perforation
and near wellbore stimulation, all at one time. This can be run on TCP, Wireline
or Coil and is available in multiple OD’s.
tool consists of a molded tube of non-explosive propellant material which has an
inner metal perforated tube that is loaded with a 40 gr/ft detonating cord.
Available in multiple OD’s, it is run on Wireline, in wellbores that have
already been perforated. STIMTUBE® is positioned across these perforations
so when the oxidizer is ignited, creates a quick burst of high pressure.
- KODIAK Enhanced Perforating System™
is available in a 3-1/8" and 3-3/8" OD 5 spf scalloped perforating
guns. The propellant disk are inserted in between the Premium Owen HERO® SDP
charges, which provides enhanced perforations and stimulation of the near wellbore
all at one time.
- Well Stimulation Tool (WST) - to be released in 2013
These products allow for maximum stimulation design flexibility for a wide range
of well applications. With each of these products, production/injection enhancement
is accomplished through perforation breakdown and near wellbore stimulation.
