selective firing

1. n. [Perforating]
The technique of selectively firing successive perforating guns arranged in a multiple gun assembly. This method is used when several intervals are to be perforated in one run and when the gun assembly must be relocated before the guns are fired. The resulting perforation pattern is known as selective perforating.
