Everything about the development of TriStim has been focussed on mitigating downsides whilst delivering great upsides. Here’s why there are no downsides to deployment.
Running TriStim is simple
The TriStim gun system is simple because it can be deployed in the wellbore using all of the methods commonly used for conventional perforating: electric wireline, jointed tubing, coiled tubing or slick line.
With standard perforation gun sizes of 2″, 2⅞”, 3⅛” and 4½”, the TriStim product range is designed to address the vast majority of customer requirements and the system can be run by any service company.
No extra preparation work is required by customer staff, compared with a conventional perforating programme. More information in the TriStim Product Specification.
TriStim assembly and deployment
Assembling TriStim is easy, and we even have online training available for your gun assemblers.
TriStim uses standard components
Despite its unique patented shaped charge arrangement, TriStim only utilises fully field proven components so there is no risk from using untested parts.
TriStim has taken the present standard of oil & gas well perforation systems and innovated using standard components. From the shaped charges to the gun hardware itself, TriStim is no different to any other premium perforating system.
TriStim has undergone rigorous testing
Additionally, TriStim has been developed to ensure no compromises in the performance that would be expected from a standard perforating system.
This means TriStim has the same shot density and shaped charge capacity as any comparable system. Keeping TriStim aligned means there can be no reduction in the overall performance of the gun system – only upsides due to the advantage of convergent shockwaves.
TriStim is configurable
As a bonus, TriStim can deliver even more upside when the phasing of the convergent perforation channels is fine tuned according to specific well conditions. This enables even better performance from the perforation.
Whether used for new wells, reperforation or for pre-frac applications, TriStim is the perforation system with the potential to take your completion to the next level.
Peace of mind
In summary, the key factors supporting TriStim’s successful deployment are as follows:
- Conventionally run guns
- Standard components
- Rigorous testing
- Global logistics excellence in oil & gas related explosives
- Careful well selection
- Meticulous planning
- Full gamut of support on tap
- A Delphian specialist on the frontline, onsite, in the crucial initial stages
All of which adds up to the highest level of confidence that TriStim will perform on the day. In safe hands, following tried and tested processes, and with the lowest possible risk of unforeseen factors.
