The Times have published a piece on Delphian Ballistics and TriStim in the ‘Power of Scotland‘ energy supplement.
Referencing Sir Ian Wood’s 2014 Maximising Recovery report, the article focuses on the role that new technologies will need to play in revolutionising the productivity of infrastructure. TriStim is given as an example of the innovative technology that the Wood report encourages the UK to develop if it is to become a ‘global centre of expertise’ for mature hydrocarbon basin exploitation.
The article describes TriStim as an “Innovative perforation system [that will] reduce the need for onshore and offshore fracking as well as enhancing recovery from mature wells and those previously considered unviable”.
Stuart McLeod (Managing Director, Delphian Ballistics) comments that TriStim “delivers cleaner and simpler perforations” and that when “put into practise on a global scale by operators, it will increase productivity and asset life”.
Referring to the fact that TriStim has been shown to significantly reduce fracking initiation pressures, Stuart goes on to say, TriStim “is an elegant solution to reduce the fracking operation which can be costly and also a concern for many environmentalists”.
Referring to the testing that has shown TriStim can increase production levels by up to 50% Stuart comments, “The North Sea is a declining market and [TriStim] is a cost effective way of significantly enhancing well productivity with no additional risk or downside – essentially it provides a much bigger return for a marginal investment”.
