TrueJet™ Uniform-Hole Perforating Charge
2 days per 2,000 charges
TrueJet™ perforating charges from Baker Hughes create uniform entry holes, helping customers to improve fracture distribution and reservoir communication in unconventional wells. Developed through extensive testing and modeling, the charges deliver perforations with a consistent entry-hole diameter and shape, regardless of gun configuration, orientation, or position within the casing.
Unlike many conventional charges that can create rugose, multi-sized perforations that adversely affect flow efficiency and treatment delivery, the uniform holes generated by TrueJet charges help to optimize the efficiency of the perforation clusters, ensuring even distribution of fracture fluids and/or proppant. The uniform holes also enable reliable diversion rates and designed treatment pressures, ensuring stimulation programs can be executed to plan.
TrueJet perforating charges are fully compatible with industry-standard perforating hardware and have undergone comprehensive testing and qualification using API RP 19B practices. The charges have also been qualified under stressed rock conditions and are available in both RDX and HMX versions.
