effective shot density

1. n. [Perforating]
A value that reflects the number of perforations per unit of length (usually feet) that are producing, or injecting, efficiently. Perforation efficiency may be compromised by gun failure or charge misfire, perforation debris, excessive standoff or poor orientation, or by combinations of these. The effective shot density may be used in treatment design models or to calculate likely productivity response.
