Abstract

By wrapping a perforating gun in a reactive element material the element can be allowed to react to well fluid and create an isolation. The guns can then be triggered to shoot isolated fracture points through the energized element and into the formation. This would simulate the plug and perf operation on a single run essentially replacing the cement in the cased hole with a reactive element.
