Casing Perforation Fracturing

Abrasafrac-Website Header-Option 2 rv2 B&W.png

Kobold’s abrasive perforating tool quickly and accurately provides cuts at any location in the wellbore.


Kobold’s Abrasafrac service allow operators to cut new perforations, rather than bypassing producing zones.

The Abrasa cutting tool is a module attached to the Sandhawk bottomhole assembly. This provides the option to perforate casing as required, or if frac initiation cannot be achieved between sliding sleeve fracture applications. Fracture fluid is then pumped down the annulus or through coiled tubing to gain further zone initiation.

The Abrasafrac service seamlessly works with Kobold’s Surefrac service. During a frac program, stages can be added between sleeves if formation breakdown is proving to be a challenge.
