CoStim™ is Areco’s new generation of perforation enhancement technology.
CoStim™ technology stands as a transformative force in the realm of well completion, stimulation, and production. It seamlessly integrates into every phase of a well’s journey, offering a multi-dimensional value proposition: enhanced perforations for heightened accuracy and production, streamlined procedures that yield efficiency gains and cost savings, a surge increase in production rates through optimized fluid dynamics, timely deployment for prompt output, an initial production rate boost for a strong well lifecycle start, maximized reservoir connectivity and hydrocarbon recovery, clean wellbores ensuring long-term viability, innovative design tailored to reservoir characteristics, and the unlocking of your well’s full performance potential.
This patent-pending innovation is the second generation of our perforation enhancement technology. The reactive composite ring, positioned ahead of the shaped charge, boasts 2 times higher energy density than propellant-based alternatives.
Operating under the impact of the shaped charge jet stream, CoStim™ generates sustained deflagration within the perforation tunnel. It initiates a chain reaction and produces a series of secondary powerful pressure waves and shock waves that effectively decontaminate the near-wellbore zone, expel debris, eradicate compact zones, convert the plugged perforation tip into fan-shaped microfracture-inducing zones as well as potentially initiate fractures on perforation wall, enlarge the void depth and capacity of the tunnel, preserving the integrity of the perforation entry-hole aperture; and ensuring no additional swelling in the perforation gun.
Collectively, it amplifies Perforation Effectiveness and Operational Cost-Efficiency.
