TriStim has been through a rigorous process of validation which has led to a globally commercialised product that is ready for you to deploy.
Here’s an overview of the validation steps that TriStim has undertaken.
Geometry EvolutionThe development history of F1 cars - Colin Chapman Circa. 1950 changed how F1 cars would look, enabled significant changes in aerodynamics. Big manufacturers were resistant but now his approach has become the standard.
Patented Ballistics TechnologyInnovative arrangement of the shaped charges used in perforating delivers enhanced ballistic effort (converging shockwaves) & superior results in optimised perforation geometry.
Finite Element ModelEarly analysis of shaped charge interaction using FEM for confirmation of ballistic effect & geometry enhancement delivery.
Section IVPerformance measurements using flow data from shot core (Berea Sandstone Equivalent) compared directly to conventional shot data for same test set-up conditions.
SPE paper 179194 - Flow Performance‘TriStim® convergent perforations show improvements to flow efficiency by up to 25%, skin reduction of up to 85%. PI is shown to increase by circa 50% over the standard HSD system.’
Case studyDevon Energy’s analysis showed a 29% improvement with the TriStim technology and concluded that TriStim facilitated more successful proppant pumping, reduced screen outs and lower treatment pressures. Read the case study about this project.
