tubing puncher

1. n. [Perforating, Well Completions]
A special perforating gun, or charge, that is designed for limited penetration to allow an inner tubing or casing string to be perforated without damaging a surrounding outer string. These guns often are used in remedial or workover operations in which downhole communication devices, such as sliding sleeves, cannot be opened to allow circulation of well-kill fluids.
