“The Tempo system delivers a major step in improving wellsite safety and operational efficiency as well as providing real-time measurements in perforating operations,” said Djamel Idri, president, Wireline, Schlumberger.

Schlumberger said the combination of a plug-in gun design with real-time advanced downhole measurements enables and monitors the well’s dynamic underbalance to create clean perforations that boost reservoir productivity.

The Tempo system has the flexibility to accommodate most perforating gun sizes and shaped charges.

The simplified arming process increases safety and reliability by eliminating the variability introduced by wellsite crimping and wiring, which are the primary causes of misruns and misfires.

The company said that the system is being deployed in Egypt, Oman, Kuwait, Algeria and Ecuador.
