Hunting Energy Services, a subsidiary of Hunting PLC, the international energy services company, has announced it has developed the shortest plug-and-play, perforating gun system capable of firing up to four shots per 7.5 in. cluster.
The H-2 Perforating SystemTM features EQUAfrac® shaped charges in a single plane configuration, creating the shortest gun length on the market. H-2 simplifies loading and arming by utilizing proprietary charge puck and Shorty ControlFire® cartridge technology to eliminate detonating cord.
The H-2 system is ideal for high gun per stage operations and scenarios where rig up length is limited. H-2 will be available in a 3 1/8-in. gun diameter, which is an optimal size for well completions with 4 ½-in. and 5 ½-inch casing.
The Shorty ControlFire cartridge improves upon proven technology by housing the ControlFire switch, detonator and pressure bulkhead in a convenient, wireless package that is now more efficient. This eliminates the need for tandem subs and shortens the overall tool string.
The Shorty ControlFire cartridge also eliminates the need for wiring and contains the industry-leading ControlFire switch. The ControlFire switch has a success rate of 99.999% over 3 million runs and allows for up to 100 guns per run.
