Plug-and-Perf System

GEODynamics introduced the FracIQ PRO, a perforating system tailored for multistage plug-and-perf operations. The new patent-pending system combines professional-grade gun-loading and assembly features with FracIQ Limited Entry Perforating shaped charges. The charges deliver constant hole sizes and penetration depths in wells regardless of gun position, well casing, or formation type. Constant-sized casing holes improve fracture planning by providing optimal pressure diversion while constant rock penetration creates repeatable breakdown pressures. The system’s perforating gun technology incorporates redundant grounding for reliable firing with any switch system and threaded gun-to-gun connections that eliminate hand wiring at the wellsite. At the wellsite, a gun sub that does not yield a positive electrical test can be quickly unscrewed from the string and replaced. The FracIQ PRO system is available in 0.30-, 0.35-, 0.40-, and 0.50-in. hole sizes. During extensive field trials, US service companies successfully deployed more than 10,000 of these perforating systems for pump-down plug-and-perf operations. The systems employ standard subs and, therefore, do not incur additional project costs. Compared with traditional guns, FracIQ PRO gun lengths are shorter, reducing steel costs while providing easier handling operations. Every aspect of the perforating system is designed to save operating time and cost while improving reliability and safety.
