Addressable Release Tool (ART) The ART-H tool is used in horizontal and highly deviated wells when the controllable release of all or part of a stuck toolstring is required.  

Downhole Release Tool While today’s long laterals provide greater lengths of coverage for accessing the formation, they can present challenges in tool configuration. One is that the logging tool or perforating gun string does not contain a built in weak-point due to the longer lateral lengths. In the situation where the tool becomes stuck and must be released from wireline to start fishing operations a downhole release tool must be used. 

Greaseless Line Renegade greaseless line has been used successfully on thousands of runs to provide a grease-free, environmentally-friendly conveyance method. Renegade was one of the first to introduce greaseless line in 2014 and brings years of expertise to every job.  

The Insulation Displacement Contact Tool (IDC) is designed to limit or control the movement of a tool string within the wellbore. This may be required to prevent a logging tool being pushed uphole, along the wellbore by fluid flow, or to hold a tool in place on an incline. 

Downhole Tension Device The head tension tool from Renegade offers a real-time view of downhole tool string activity. The tool provides accurate insight into pump down operations and offers a real-time advantage over weight indicators. 

Engineered Wellbore Modeling allows pump-down job design to minimize risk and improve efficiency and performance. Pre-job planning of details such as tool sizes, pump-down rates and BHA design will help optimize job design and performance.

All of these systems have the goal of maintaining production while helping ensure safe wellsite operations.  

    Related Content

    Cement Integrity and Evaluation

    Along with casing, cement is the backbone of the wellbore. A good cement job protects the formation and the water table, prevents leakage from the wellbore into the formation and provides the structure that supports the completions hardware. Renegade provides services that monitor the health of the cement and cement bond to both formation and pipe. 

    Casing Integrity and Evaluation

    Over the life of the well, harsh downhole environments, high temperatures and pressure, constant fluid flow and corrosive gas such as H2S can cause casing abnormalities that can ultimately lead to failure if not detected and repaired. Renegade casing integrity and evaluation services can identify casing problems and help maintain casing life.   

    Pulse Neutron RASP

    The Renegade Reservoir Analysis Sonde Prospector (RASP™) pulse neutron tool helps characterize the formation and provide information the operator needs to make timely decisions on well performance and well planning.

    Renegade: The pioneers of RigLock®, the original hands-free, remote hydraulic wellhead latch assembly (HWLA)

    Remove the person from the risk

    Renegade Services continues to innovate and implement new levels of wellsite efficiency and safety with the RigLock remote hydraulic wellhead latch assembly. Developed in conjunction with FHS, RigLock removes wellsite personnel from dangerous situations handling heavy, cumbersome equipment at heights near high-pressure lines.

    Riglock is a hydraulically-controlled, remote operation device that can connect the lubricator to the well with the flip of a switch. It allows you to remotely connect and disconnect the wireline lubricator. RigLock uses hydraulically operated dogs that lock the lubricator in place and a lockdown ring that mechanically holds the dogs in place. The position of the lockdown ring can be seen from anywhere on location. It also uses a built-in funnel to make it very simple for a crane operator to make a connection.

    RigLock utilizes a tapered wedge/spring design and a hydraulically actuated lock ring resulting in industry-leading standards of safety and remote wellsite management sophistication not available with current systems. Crews work from a safe distance, away from the red zone, with but with clear visibility of connection or disconnection operations.

    Previously frac operations required the nightcap to be removed manually from the frac tree to stab the wireline lubricator onto the well. This involved a person working on a lift, manually performing the operations. This was done in an exclusion zone, directly underneath a suspended load with hands on the equipment being lifted. RigLock removes the person from the risk.

     

    • Extractor feature can pull and insert the nightcap remotely.
    • Decreases time it takes to stab onto the well from 25 minutes to only eight minutes.
    • During zipper fracs, wireline operations can proceed from one to well to another while pumping operations continue uninterrupted.

      Compensated Neutron Log

      A compensated neutron log is useful for identifying zones of interest and determining perforating depths, tracking gas cap movement and gas encroachment under shale layers, as a correlation between open and cased hole where a gamma ray is not indicative, and to measure overall porosity of the well. At Renegade we primarily use the compensated neutron log (CNL) to identify pay zones in a well. Once the zones of interest are identified and logged, the engineer can make an informed decision on perforation placement.

      Gamma Ray Log

      The Gamma Ray Log measures total natural radioactivity and is displayed in American Petroleum Institute (API) units. The measurement can be made in both openhole and through casing. Shales and clay are responsible for most natural radioactivity, so the gamma ray log is often a good indicator of such rock. The log is also used for correlation between wells, for depth correlation between open and cased hole, and for depth correlation between logging runs.

      Spectral Gamma Ray Tool

      Spectral Gamma Ray Tool provides information about the mineralogy of formations, specifically the source of a particular gamma ray by measuring the amplitude or energy level. Since the most frequent sources of natural radiation in the formation are thorium, uranium and potassium, the tool can measure the amount of each in shale and sand formations.  

      • Provides detailed stratigraphic correlation 
      • Identifies depositional environments 
      • Determines clay type analysis and volume 
      • Heavy mineral identification 

      The tool utilizes a large, ruggedized scintillation detector to measure the quantity of naturally occurring potassium, uranium and thorium. The total gamma spectrum is resolved into 256 channels internally and used to determine the components of naturally occurring radiation in sands and shales. This data is used to distinguish important features of the clay or sand around the wellbore formation such as clay volume, clay type, heavy minerals and is also used for fracture detection.

      The detector package is designed to maximize the energy spectra sensitivity over the entire range of energy levels and logging speeds encountered in various formations. The tool uses an automatic internal stabilization circuit to stabilize the detector and electronics for temperature drift errors over the entire operating temperature range.

      Injection Profile Logging (IPL)

      Fluid Flow Data From Injection Wells Provide Insight on Overall Well Construction Integrity

      As a field matures the need for injection profile data from injection wells increases. Running injection profiles eliminates assumptions of fluid direction providing an overall view of well performance and integrity, allowing operators to map their water or CO2 flood.  

      Renegade Injection Profile Logging (IPL) checks the integrity of overall well construction on injection wells. Profiles are run to determine the health of injector units, monitor fluid dispersion, find and measure out-of-zone losses and provide a comprehensive picture of the overall downhole activity on an injector. This service can identify leaks out of the zones’ injection area, including packer leaks and holes in tubing where there are no perforations.

      The shut-in portion of the injection profile log can provide customers insight into areas of fluid storage and communications between high- and low-pressure zones. Renegade’s injection profiles provide the confidence to efficiently tackle problem-well situations that can commonly cost much more and take longer to complete. Services are typically run every four years for water wells and two years for CO2 wells. 

      IPL has two advantages over traditional mechanical services such as spinner tools. First, it can observe fluid movement behind pipe; second, they eliminate the risk of blades sticking if wellbore debris is encountered. In some instances, RA tracers may be the only way to identify and locate problem areas in the well. Renegade utilizes innovative equipment and tools and has an in-house RA lab to mix RA material for specific volume and job needs.

      Production Logging Services 

      Critical Data to Help Maintain Well Performance

      Production Logging services evaluate fluid production rate and flow in producing wells and are a main indicator of well performance and problem identification. The results of a production logging services help recommend remedial treatment or workover operations.  

      Renegade Production Profile Logging has proven to be the most reliable logging technique to give operators qualitative and quantitative evaluation of injection fluids and to aid in the evaluation of the performance of field floods.  

      The same technique can be reversed for producing wells. Radioactive tracer surveys ran in conjunction with other surveys, such as temperature gradient, capacitance, velocity, bottom-hole pressure, fluid density and calipers, will give the operator a full complement of surveying techniques to help fully evaluate their wells.  

      Applications 

      • Locate oil, gas and water entry 
      • Fluid flow: no-flow check and cross-flow check 
      • Shut-in cross-flow check 
      • Injection profile log: pump-in tracer, channel-down check and CO2 composite 
      » Renegade designs the optimum production logging job with the right tools and equipment.

      While many companies may provide this service, only Renegade has the knowledge to perform a successful job every time. 

      Renegade Services has several production logging supervisors with over 25 years’ experience running production logging services. Our team will work with the operator to help ensure a safe, successful job, completed in the least amount of time.  

      • Select the right tools and equipment 
      • Make sure pressure control equipment is on location 
      • Review all well conditions such as temperature and pressure 
      • Weight bars and backup tools are available if needed 
      • Selection of radioactive isotope 
      • Safe operating procedures for handling and storage of radioactive materials  
      Step-Rate Tests

      Obtaining data is the key to planning a successful frac job. Step-Rate tests are one method for estimating the maximum injection pressure, one of the most useful parameters when planning the optimum frac treatment.  

      A step rate test can accurately measure the injection pressure needed to fracture a formation when planning a hydraulic frac job. During the test, fluid is injected into the formation at increasing pump rates. As each rate stabilizes, injection pressure data is taken for each rate. The resulting data is used to create a plot displaying injection pressure verse injection rate. From this plot, pressure and flow rates can be established to identify the fracture pressure necessary to fracture the formation and successfully place fluid and proppant.  

      Spectral Noise/Digital Temperature Survey

      The relationship between reservoir flow and wellbore flow is critical to well performance. The Renegade spectral noise log in conjunction with a high-precision digital temperature survey can accurately locate and quantify reservoir flow and wellbore flow to help determine the relation between the two.   

      This combination can diagnose unexpected well problems and also proactively ensure the well is working properly. Resulting data provides a wealth of information on well performance and can help identify zones where remediation is needed.  

      • Identify surface casing vent flow (SCVF) 
      • Identify external gas migration (GM)  
      • Identify fluid flow behind multiple casing pipe barriers 
      • Locate source of downhole leaks 
      • Help identify leaking fluids into freshwater reservoirs  
      • Identify regional lateral flows and crossflows 
      • Differentiate fluid and gas flow and amount 
      • Identify annulus leaks for sealing with Renegade Local Expander technology so P&A can commence

      Renegade can use bond logs and casing inspection logs to identify, map and further explain spectral noise/digital temperature survey data.  

      Renegade Memory Gauges

      A producing wellbore creates a tremendous amount of information that must be gathered, managed and then interpreted. A variety of diagnostic tools can help you manage the production of your well and gain valuable insights into the processes that are occurring downhole. These tools provide the data that help operators to identify what systems to use to increase or maintain production and how to adapt to changing conditions of the wellbore. 

      Memory gauges are one of the most helpful tools for well diagnostics. They detect and measure temperature and pressure at points along the wellbore. These gauges are beneficial because they provide downhole information without requiring substantial resources.

      They also eliminate the need for deploying e-line each time temperature and pressure measurements are required.  Memory gauges are powered by a battery pack and can be set downhole and left for an extended period to capture and store data and then be retrieved at a later date. 

      • Data can be used to determine the flow rate of the well 
      • Provide information to help implement the right lift systems to maintain production  
      • Help devise a cost-effective and timely program to monitor and maintain the well production

      Cement Bond Integrity and Evaluation 

      The Renegade Difference 

      Along with casing, cement is the backbone of the wellbore. A good cement job protects the formation and the water table, prevents leakage from the wellbore into the formation and provides the structure that supports the completions hardware. It is one of the most critical components of a producing well.  

      Renegade provides services that monitor the health of the cement and cement bond to both formation and pipe. Our tools identify problems that could ultimately affect well integrity. If problems are found, we can recommend and carry out immediate remediation services that can prevent greater failures if not addressed.  

      • Unmatched data quality with over hundreds of data points per foot, even at logging speeds over 100 ft per minute. 
      • Shorter tool lengths reduce the risk of damage to the wellbore or the environment.
      • Provides cement evaluation, casing wear and casing thickness information, corrosion imaging and fluid properties in the wellbore. 
      • Identifies micro-annulus to shut off service casing vent flow. 
      • Can log environments up to 350°F and 20,000 psi. 
      • Tools can be combined to run in stack configurations (cement bond, gamma ray, CCL, caliper, magnetic thickness) for greater time savings on workover and drilling rigs.

      Radial Cement Bond Log

      The radial cement bond tool utilizes a single ceramic transmitter, an eight-segment receiver at 3-ft spacing and a single receiver at 5-ft spacing to accurately measure the quality of the cement job in a cased hole well environment. The segmented receiver provides a good indication of cement channeling behind the casing.

      GunhandlerLAYDOWN – LIFT ASSIST TOOL 

      This highly efficient tool—fast becoming indispensable during wireline runs—increases productivity on-site and significantly decreases risk variables associated with operations. Not only is the strain on equipment alleviated but the equipment operators are no longer positioned under a suspended load. Gunhandler is actively being used on pads across the U.S. where crews have reported “feeling crippled when trying to operate without it.” 

      GUNHANDLER™ WAS DESIGNED BY WIRELINE HANDS FOR WIRELINE HANDS, TAKING THE OPERATOR OUT FROM BELOW SUSPENDED LOADS AND INTO A SAFER, LESS STRENUOUS WORKING ENVIRONMENT.

       

      Safety

      Regardless of the amount of safety training, there is still an element of risk during wellsite operations. Reduction in operator fatigue from the use of the Gunhandler™ is pivotal in creating a shop-caliber environment in the field. More focus is put back into service quality rather than heavy lifting. This higher service quality can lead to fewer gun-misfires, less stress on tools, unexpected modes of failure and longer tool life. 

      • No more manual dolly laydowns/manual lifts 
      • No more personnel under suspended loads 
      • Clearly defined “no-go” zone 
      • Safer, less strenuous gun building zone 
      • Backup, two-position butt-stock, ratcheting lock feature 
      • No damage to the cabling at the rope sockets 
      • Picking up the tool string from vertical positions eliminates all almost flex stress on the tool 
      • Compact design keeps areas near the wellhead clear – and allows more room to work 
      • One-person rig-up/down

       

      » Gunhandler compact design was made for the congested wellsite area.

      Features

      The Gunhandler was designed with the equipment operator in mind. The hydraulically actuated lift bunk ranges from horizontal to 80º and eliminates the need for manual dolly laydowns. Taking the operator out of the line of fire removes many of the risk variables associated with near-wellhead operations.The six-pad landing gear not only provides a stable footing for anchored operation but also creates a clearly defined “no-go” zone when lifting or laying down the toolstring.

      During Gunhandler operation, the two-position butt stock has a ratcheting lock feature for piece-of-mind, so tools remain secured and is spring-retained in the event that an operator forgets to ratchet it down before use. 

      • The waist high working surface gives the wireline ground crew a more comfortable and ergonomic working environment. 
      • Wing legs open at 45° and span a width of 18 ft providing near limitless adjust-ability, a no-go barrier and secure stabilization. 
      • Compact footprint at only 6 ft wide provides the most efficient use of the allotted square footage for the wireline working area. 
      • Fully extended to the 80˚ maximum lift, the equipment will stand 23 ft vertical height. 
      • Gunhandler takes only one crew member to setup, operate and prepare for travel. 
      • Jack-legs are rated to 8,000 lb and have an 18 in. travel 

      Increases in the number of stages completed per day can put added strain on operators and increase the risk for potential fatigue-related incidents. The increased frequency of rebuilding of guns is similar to the high volume of repair at the shop level. Gunhandler has an overall height of 42 in. and provides an ideal working height for the operator. Renegade is bridging the gap to assist our field operators by providing shop-like conditions at the wellsite. 

      INCREASED EFFICIENCY

      The compact design of the Gunhandler keeps areas near the wellhead clear and allows operators more room to work. Virtually no added room is needed to place Gunhandler into the work zone, yet it provides the functional capability of 23 ft of vertical support to the tool string. With an overall width of 6 ft, it has advantages over many other industry solutions and allows workers to easily reach tools without strain during a rebuild. 

      One-person rig-up/down makes the Gunhandler one of the simplest pieces of equipment to setup, run or transport. Variable speed control allows the operator to adjust the rate of the crane operation for maximum precision. 

      Reduction in operator fatigue is pivotal in creating a shop-caliber environment in the field. More focus is put back into service quality rather than heavy lifting. This higher service quality can lead to fewer gun-misfires, fewer unexpected modes of failure, and longer tool life.
