PerfExtraSM: A Step Change in Hydraulic Fracturing


  • Increased perforation breakdown and fracturing efficiency
  • Compatible with almost all completion types
  • Increased capital efficiency
  • Increased initial well rates, EUR and reserves
  • Low-risk, low-cost, low-time implementation

    GTI has a long history in unconventionals, including a key role in the development of hydraulic fracturing that subsequently unleashed the shale resource revolution in the U.S. Over the last six years, GTI has developed the patented PerfExtraSM technology as a solution to directly address low perforation breakdown efficiency during hydraulic fracturing, an issue where there are few effective incumbent technologies. This technological enhancement is a low-risk, low-cost, low-time improvement that is compatible with most fracturing approaches in use today. Field results to date have shown 15-25% improvement in the perforation opening of fracture stages, followed by sustained 15% higher initial rates relative to control wells for over a year after start-up.

    GTI is offering the technology under license, and if desired, direct support from GTI leveraging our know-how, proprietary software, and analysis to ensure optimal implementation. With our implementation approach, we can predict performance improvements prior to well start-up. GTI would be pleased to develop a program with you to drive higher performance from your unconventional assets.
