Halliburton Advances Perforating Technology With Opening Of New Flow Laboratory

Halliburton (NYSE: HAL) today announced the official opening of its state-of-the-art Advanced Perforating Flow Lab (APFL). The new facility expands Halliburton’s global perforating research, development and testing capabilities with leading-edge technologies that simulate the most extreme real-world reservoir conditions and provide customers with unique perforating solutions that help optimize reservoir performance.

“Halliburton once again is stepping ahead and leading the industry in perforating technology,” said David Topping, Vice President of Halliburton’s Wireline and Perforating business line. “With our new facilities, we have the capability to reproduce the conditions we are going to find downhole, whether in deepwater, unconventional resources or mature fields, thereby providing our customers with access to information that will help with the right choice of perforation design to maximize their assets.”

The facility includes four independent testing rooms, an integrated command and control center, a core preparation laboratory, and an extensive perforated core analysis laboratory for post-test evaluation.

Among the lab’s game-changing technologies are: flow vessels with the ability to conduct tests that simulate downhole reservoir conditions, including pressures and temperatures with a maximum rating of 50,000 psi and 400°F; test vessels with the ability to rotate 180 degrees to perform gravity-related sanding studies; and a perforated core analysis laboratory that utilizes the latest computed tomography (CT) imaging technology to evaluate perforator performance and reservoir inflow.

The APFL is located in Alvarado, Texas, at Halliburton’s Jet Research Center (JRC), an 800-acre campus, where, for half a century, Halliburton has provided energetic solutions to the global energy industry.
