HERO® Perforating Systems - Perforating Charges
(High Efficiency Reservoir Optimization Perforating System)


Owen Oil Tools’ HERO-HR™, SUPER HERO® and HERO® charges, due to their advanced, patented technology liner material, leave a clean perforation tunnel that helps to reduce frac breakdown pressures. Years ago, in an effort to increase penetration, Owen began adding tungsten to deep penetrating shape charges. Though this did result in considerable improvement, the added tungsten produced undesirable debris that significantly reduced the effectiveness of the perf tunnel volume.

Owen’s patented liner in the HERO-HR™, SUPER HERO® and HERO® charges contain molybdenum, and have improved geometry to yield a larger perf tunnel and prevent spent tungsten from becoming a solid. When it comes to lower break down pressures and putting the frac job away, Owen’s HERO-HR™, SUPER HERO® and HERO® charges give you not only deep penetrating performance, but more effective flow efficiency.
