Why should I consider Sand Jet Perforating?
Sand jet perforating can create communication where traditional explosive cannot by continually providing cutting energy to the perforation tool through the flow of high pressure sand slurry.
The example below shows the penetration of our 1-11/16” sand jet perforating tool energized inside and penetrating 2-⅞” production tubing, 7” casing, annular cement, 11-⅞” casing, cement, and formation rock compared to traditional explosive perforator penetration.
The sand jet tunnel (green) gets larger in diameter with distance from the tool, while the diameter of the explosive perforator decreases with distance from the tool.
This dramatically increased, undamaged surface area into the formation, combined with lower temperature and pressure compared to explosives, creates enhanced reservoir communication. On this potential P&A it was not cost effective to get a rig offshore to pull the tubing so that explosive perforating could be deployed. The successful SJP job resulted in renewed production from an inactive well at reasonable cost.
When you are battling near wellbore damage, tight or hard formations, restrictions in tool size, or multiple casing scenarios, sand jet perforating could be the cost-effective solution. We are glad to discuss specific well scenarios and see if SJP makes sense for you.
What's Ahead | October 2023
Catch us in San Antonio, TX October 16-18 at the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) ATCE 2023 Conference & Exhibition where we will present our Gulf of Mexico case study research paper where Sand Jet Perforating proved very successful in an extremely challenging scenario.
