Renegade Diagnostic Technologies

Tracer services for multi-well and multi-stage unconventional and conventional stimulation and EOR project management

A successful completion is a critical part of your well’s production plan. Renegade offers a full suite of completion diagnostic evaluation and tracer solutions that provide quantitative and qualitative data analytics. The accumulated data is used to evaluate completion, reservoir, and EOR (enhanced oil recovery) scenarios to increase well production and reduce operating cost. Established in 2010, our goal is to provide a competitive economic and regional tracer service option for oil and gas operators across all U.S. basins.

Renegade diagnostic technologies provides tracer injection options for a broad spectrum of applications including multi-well and multi-stage unconventional and conventional stimulation and EOR project management. Our wellsite technicians continually monitor injection for optimal QA/QC tracer placement, proppant, fluid, and job performance.

  • Monitor and diagnose horizontal well stimulations
  • Evaluate stimulation job effectiveness
  • Improve hydraulic fracturing results
  • Help evaluate acid diversion
  • Determine fracture orientation and fracture width
  • Analyze horizontal completions
  • Trace SWD
  • Waterflood applications

Renegade Tracer Technologies utilizes a zero-wash isotope to prevent any material plating off during the fracturing process.

SWAT Spectral Well Analysis Technology is Renegade’s line of post-frac logging tools used to identify and define radioactive isotopes. These tools offer real-time or memory data in a 1-11/16-in. OD tool configuration.

RWT Renegade Water Tracer Technology is a composite line of benzoic salts. These singular-phase water tracers are utilized for a large variety of applications in completions, reservoir characterization and EOR diagnostics.

ROT Renegade Oil Tracer Technology is a composite line of hydrophobic tracers that are water phobic and preferential to organic material. The tracers disperse from the water phase into hydrocarbon phase upon introduction to the reservoir.

As part of an overall tracer program, Renegade offers:

Tracer calibration testing RWT and ROT tracers are calibrated through controlled interval testing and in various formations.

Sampling collection and coordination Renegade provides in-house sampling coordination as part of our standard service, avoiding any complications with shipping and receiving.

Real-Time job monitoring Enhanced report with high-resolution 3D viewing and job summary analytics.

Reports delivered in multiple formats for integration with other operator programs.

Renegade Services can Provide Any Tracing Application Your Company Requires

Renegade introduces new Full Electric Drive Wireline Truck for customers in the Northeast 

Efficiency, performance and regulatory compliance all in a compact unit

Today, companies are being challenged to evaluate their environmental footprint as part of a long-term ESG strategy. One example recently occurred when Renegade Wireline Services and Benchmark Wireline Products teamed up to convert an existing Renegade Bulldog unit into an electric unit. For use in areas where many customers are now requiring electric fleets on the job site, the new Full Electric Drive Wireline Truck will bring more efficient operations to the wellsite and provide quieter operations while lessening the impact on the environment. The unit will also help meet strict regulatory requirements that are mandatory for some areas. While electric units at the rigsite are not a new idea, they have recently become more common due to several advantages.

  • More efficient 
  • Lessens the environmental impact 
  • Less noise 
  • Meets regulatory requirements in some areas 
» The unit features many automatic controls and displays.

The trend is that for future use, all wireline units will be required to be electric. This is another example of Renegade bringing technology to the wellsite the customer has asked for.

Designed specifically for customers whose wells have a small footprint, Renegade’s Full Electric Drive Wireline unit can fit where other units cannot without taking up valuable rigsite space. Although there are competitor units available, they are larger in size, cost much more and are size-prohibitive for well sites with a small footprint. The Renegade unit was designed with the customer in mind to accommodate small locations.    

Some of the features of this new unit include: 

  • Auto Surface Shutdown 
  • Auto Over-tension Shutdown 
  • Auto Target Depth Tie-In and Shutdown 
  • Automatic Torque Control Adjustment 
  • Automatic Cable Oiler (optional) 
  • Visual Alarm Settings 
  • Hoist Controller with Can Buss Interface 

Benefits to the service company include increased operational efficiency.  

  • No diesel fuel is required on location assuming there is AC power on location. 
  • There is reduced wear and tear on the equipment, especially on pump-down operations where the engine can be running for long periods of time. The unit motor is only used for transport from one location to another. 
  • Fewer moving parts except for the winch. No pumps, no PTO, etc. All replaced with electric power. 
  • The combination of an electric unit and AC power on location can result in a zero-carbon footprint.

Leak Detection

Experience and innovation provide the means to successfully identify leaks and fluid flow

Renegade Leak Detection Services identifies leaks and fluid flow direction in annulus, casing or tubulars without the need to deploy mechanical devices such as spinner tools downhole. 

Renegade’s experience with our proven tracer technologies for frac operations, and injection profiles mean we can devise the right combination of tools, RA material and expertise for any leak detection operation.  

Leaks present in any pipe string that you can pump into can be tested with this same process utilized by our proven injection profile service. Compliance is often required by state regulations on disposal wells to ensure all injected fluid is leaving the well in the permitted zones and is not channeling up to higher intervals. Trial runs before pumping cement can also be performed to ensure abandonment procedures are met and cement locations are approved by state authorities.

Injection Profiles are run to find and measure out-of-zone losses, monitor fluid dispersion and provide a comprehensive picture of the overall downhole activity. This service can identify leaks, including packer leaks and holes in tubing where there are no perforations. Renegade’s injection profiles provide the confidence to efficiently tackle problem-well situations that can commonly cost much more and take longer to complete.  read more 

Radioactive Tracer Log uses RA tracer material to detect channels or leaks that can indicate the precise location and rate of fluid loss.  

Temperature Log Temperature variations indicate fluid loss to help identify channels and prove fluid entry points.  

Gamma Ray and CCL Logs are used in both open hole and casing to correlate job to the proper depth, provide depth control for future jobs, identify natural radioactivity in the formation and identify collars, packers and casing shoes.  

With our industry-leading technology and extensive knowledge base, Renegade provides well integrity quantifications as well as production economics in real time.
