HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Energy Fishing & Rental Services (EFRS) introduces the first commercial perforating system that reliably operates without explosive charges.
Gator Multi-Use Perforating System uses a proprietary, hydro-mechanical design to perforate casing efficiently and effectively, with a dramatic increase in safety compared to conventional explosive perforating tools. The design enables repeat use, and the system can perform unlimited perforations in a single trip.
Gator Perforator system is currently available with differential pressure ratings of 10,000 and 15,000 psi. Applications include water injection well integrity, plug & abandonment, completions, and production. It also eliminates the need for toe sleeves, wet shoes and TCP runs. The system can be run in tandem with a coiled tubing clean-out run for well preparations prior to fracturing.
Because it eliminates explosives, Gator Perforator system is ideal for use in highly populated or high-traffic areas. The system is used in vertical and horizontal wells, for production and cement squeezes. Other ideal applications include shallow perforating, and perforating production casing without damage to surface casing.
The system has been field-proven in numerous successful perforating operations to deliver substantial cost savings and risk reduction.
