Perforating Gun Systems and Setting Tools for Oil & Gas

A perforated gun is a manufactured device that prepares oil and gas wells for production using perforation. The name “perforated guns” comes from the explosive charges along the tubular device. These charges create communication paths, also called perforations, between the reservoir and wellbore. 

Perforating gun sizes

Custom-machined, perforated guns size and shape varies depending on the oil and gas well size and geometry. Perforating gun manufacturers engineer to the needs of oil and gas clients. 

Perforating gun systems are based on surface equipment limitations while accessing the wellbore. For shape-changing perforating guns, the two most common carriers are retrievable hollow-carrier guns and expendable guns.


How do perforating guns work?

The efficiency of a well’s production is dependent on the accuracy of the perforations on the perforating guns. Increased Internet of Things (IoT) uses in oil and gas have led to an exponential demand for high-pressure perforating gun systems.

Why do I need high-quality perforating guns?

To get the most out of your oil well, you must optimize gun performance. Reducing debris and keeping wells protected using quality hollow carrier and capsule perforating guns can go a long way in increasing your production.
