CLEAN TUNNELS

FRACTURED TIPS

CONNEX® Reactive Perforating delivers clean, open tunnels independent of rock type. Every tunnel receives its own cleaning action, independent of other perforations, resulting in a much greater percentage of clean tunnels and ideal flow path between undamaged reservoir and the wellbore.

HOW IT WORKS

GEODynamics’ CONNEX® charges use reactive metals create a secondary reaction to clear out the compaction zone in a perforating zone. Patented charge liner material deposited along the tunnel reacts exothermically when introduced to heat and pressure. This reaction creates significant pressure within and around the tunnel, breaking up and expelling the crushed zone compacted debris back into the well bore. In sufficiently competent rock, fractures are also formed at the tunnel tip.

WHAT UNDERBALANCE ?

Unlike traditional underbalanced perforating, the effectiveness of CONNEX® systems is not dependent on rock properties, wellbore or formation pressures. Debris is expelled from every tunnel, even across the most heterogeneous intervals. Systems designed to enhance underbalance are no longer required, making wireline perforating an affordable and effective solution in most cases.

SYSTEM ADVANTAGES

  • Field proven to Eliminate or Dramatically Reduce Acid Volumes
  • More Efficient Hydraulic Fracture Stimulation (treating rates + pressures)
  • More Efficient Limited Entry Perforation
  • Maximum Impact Workovers
  • Profitable Completion of Heterogeneous Pay Zones
  • High Performance Injection Wells
  • Maximum Return from Mature Assets
  • Multi-String Applications
