What Is a Perforator?

In oil and natural gas extraction, a perforator is a mechanical tool that creates a hole in the casing of a well to connect it to the reservoir. This hole punched through the tubing wall allows fluid and gases to pass through at a high rate, thus making the extraction process faster and more efficient. Enabling connection between the tubing and annulus without the use of explosives, this tool is very effective and has an astonishing track record of success in the field.

The benefit of this strategy rather than using explosives is that it gives you greater control of the oil well. Using a perforator allows you to complete the well without worrying about reservoir fluids, and allows you to precisely choose the location of the formation production and seal perforations through cementation.
