CASE STUDY:

PENNSYLVANIA DEP GRANTS PERMISSION FOR OPERATOR TO P&A WELL AFTER EXPANSION SERVICE 

CONDITION:

This Pennsylvania well was scheduled for plug and abandonment, however, gas flow in the annulus prevented the operator from starting the process. All gas migration and pressure had to be eliminated before the Pennsylvania Department of Environment Protection (DEP) would let P&A operations commence. Previous attempts at stopping the gas flow with traditional squeeze cement jobs proved unsuccessful. 

PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION:

The operator contacted Renegade Services. After reviewing well problems, Renegade recommended its Local Expander technology, which expands the casing into the cement and blocks the path of any unwanted gas flow.  

 

SOLUTION & RESULTS:

Utilizing Local Expander technology, Renegade created two sets of three expansions. The first set of expansions was performed at depths of 3369, 3370 and 3371 ft while the second set was at 2069, 2070 and 2071 ft, successfully sealing the annulus. The gas rate dropped from 1.5 mscf/day to zero flow after five days while the pressure rate decreased from 105 psi to zero psi after 14 days. Upon reviewing these successful results, the Pennsylvania DEP granted permission for the operator to P&A the well. 

» Decrease in both pressure and gas rate to zero show the effectiveness of Local Expander technology and allowed the operator to P&A the well.

Local Expander™ CASE STUDY:

DECREASE IN BACKSIDE PRESSURE ALLOWS OPERATOR TO RETURN SEVEN WELLS TO PRODUCTION

CONDITION:

This operator in Pennsylvania had an issue with backside pressure on several wells. The pressure was causing gas to flow up the annulus between the casing and cement. The gas flow exceeded limits set by the state for maximum gas flow. The operator had to stop production on the wells until the problem was addressed.  

PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION:

Renegade Services was called in to evaluate the wells and recommended the Local Expander™ tool to shut off the gas flow. Local Expander unique technology expands the casing into the cement, densifying the cement and stopping upward gas flow. The wells were at two locations, with one pad containing five wells and the second pad containing two wells. Pre-job well pressure ranged from 130 psi to 680 psi on the seven wells.  

SOLUTION & RESULTS:

The Local Expander provided a successful remedy decreasing the unwanted gas flow. Renegade performed 12 expansions (four sets of three expansions) on each well. Upon reviewing the successful results, the Pennsylvania Department of Environment Protection (DEP) granted permission for the operator to return the well to production. With the success of these wells, the operator engaged Renegade and the Local Expander on ten more wells.

» Candidate selection is a critical factor in obtaining effective and consistent Local Expander results. Factors such as expansion depth, the number of expansions and cement quality all will affect the success of the Local Expander service on individual wells.

LOCAL EXPANDER™ ANNULAR SQUEEZE TOOL

Maintaining well integrity is crucial in the oil and gas exploration and production industry. Over time, tiny gaps known as micro-annuli can form in the bond between the cement and casing of the wellbore. These gaps create potential pathways to the surface, compromising the wellbore’s integrity. Furthermore, irregularities like gaps and voids between the casing, cement, and formation pose challenges for even the most advanced slurries.

Whether problems exist from the last well on the pad resulting in poor hole cleaning from reused mud, variability in perfectly centralized casing throughout the well, displacement rates that are slightly off, or thermal expansion cycles between cement-casing bond, there is a myriad of factors that can contribute to the start of micro-annuli permanently forming and getting worse during the well lifecycle.

These problems are particularly prevalent in abandoned wells, where methane leaks are common and pose environmental risks. A proven solution to these issues is now available from Renegade.

»Fingers at the top end of the tool expand outward into the casing, densifying and sealing the cement.

LOCAL EXPANSION IS A SIMPLE WAY TO SEAL MICRO-ANNULI AND STOP UNWANTED GAS FLOW. THIS ONE-RUN TOOL LEVERAGES A TELESCOPING CONE THAT EXPANDS A RADIAL SET OF HARDENED KNUCKLE-BENT FINGERS INTO THE CASING.

The solution involves a new process that uses a retractable, expandable mechanical device to cause plastic deformation and elongation of the casing string’s inner diameter. This leads to the casing’s outer diameter expanding into the cement. The resulting reduction in the annular volume seals off the micro-annuli defects in the cement and results in a densification of the cement overall. This approach allows for rigless remediation of annular gas/fluid migration.

Shell developed this process, which permanently deforms the casing pipe to increase its local diameter. It operates mechanically, with full control, and can be repeated quickly at any target interval. This engineered redundancy ensures the complete elimination of all micro-annuli and backside gas flow issues with confidence.

HOW IT WORKS

THE LOCAL EXPANDER™ FUNCTIONS BY ENLARGING THE CASING INTERNALLY, IN EFFECT COMPRESSING THE SURROUNDING CEMENT. 
  • Fingers at the top end of the tool are pressed outward by an actuated cone. 
  • The fingers expand the casing into the cement. 
  • RESULT: The cement is locally densified, and any gaps or small channels are sealed.  
CONVEYED VIA ELECTRIC WIRELINE 

The Local Expander places a sequence of crimps in the casing, eliminating the micro-annulus. This tool, which can be used in a single run and is conveyed via an electric line, has delivered comparable results to the traditional squeeze methods, albeit more cost-effectively and efficiently.

SAFETY 

The Local Expander also significantly increases safety in workover operations. With the casing crimped near the surface, the personnel can operate under safer conditions, confident in the knowledge that there’s no gas leakage to the surface.

PLUG AND ABANDON 

Wells scheduled to be permanently taken out of service must be totally sealed not only at the surface but throughout the casing string. This means no leaks of any kind. This often results in a backlog of wells waiting for plug and abandonment. The Local Expander is the trusted choice for scheduled plug and abandonment because it can affordably seal any leaks prior to plug and abandonment. Once gas migration leaks are sealed, plug and abandonment can proceed.  

Wells marked for permanent decommissioning must be entirely sealed both at the surface and throughout the casing string, ensuring zero leakage. This requirement often causes a queue of wells awaiting plug and abandonment. The Local Expander is the go-to solution for scheduled plug and abandonment because of its ability to cost-effectively seal all leaks before discontinuation. Once gas migration leaks are sealed, plug and abandonment can proceed.

In addition to plug and abandonment, several other wellsite operations can utilize the benefits of the Local Expander. 

  • Shutting off backside pressure in producing or injection wells 
  • Stopping gas migration behind the surface and/or intermediate casing strings during the drilling process 
  • Preventative maintenance prior to hydraulic fracturing where the Local Expander is used to isolate the frac zone  
  • Create a barrier during squeeze cementing
REGULATORY

The Local Expander is the preferred solution for regulatory departments because it repairs micro annulus without the use of chemicals and perforation. RWLS Specialty Services is working with the Regulatory bodies in Western Canada, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia, to name a few, to advocate the importance of eliminating this type of issue by finding a means to mitigate stray gas migration from the beginning.

ENVIRONMENTAL

Because there are no explosives, permanently deployable tools, products, or chemicals left behind, the Local Expander leads the industry in an alternative service that leaves no trace beyond the intended service. Furthermore, keeping unwanted gases and liquids in the ground instead of permeating to the surface on the backside of the casing has always been the preferred choice.

    Circulating Pyro Torch 

    Effective operations when annular flow is required for the Radial Cutting Torch

    MCR Oil Tool’s circulating pyro torch was developed using the same principles as the successful and field-proven radial cutting torch (RCT) system. However, in some conditions, adequate flow into the annulus is required when executing a successful RCT job. Explosive perforators and punchers are not reliable at producing consistent holes that provide sufficient flow, having a dramatic effect on success when cutting with the RCT. The circulating pyro torch delivers the required annular flow prior to cutting and provides a consistent and reliable punch in coil tubing, casing, and drill pipe. By utilizing the latest in MCR’s proprietary non-explosive, non-hazmat rated fuel technology, you can complete your job faster and safer than ever before. 

    • Non-explosive
    • Non-hazmat rated fuel
    • Radio safe
    • Operates in temperatures up to 500°F (260°C) and pressures up to 25,000 psi (172.4 MPa)

    Operation 

    All Renegade operators are trained and certified by MCR for proper tool operation for safe and efficient operations. 

    MCR’s circulating pyro torch assembly is lowered into the well to the desired depth. MCR’s thermal generator ignites and activates the primary fuel load causing an increase in internal pressure. Following internal pressure rise, plasma exits the torch which perforates the target pipe. By design, the CPT cutting jet forces the tool against the wall of the pipe; the high frictional forces between the CPT and the wall of the pipe are greater than the thrust forces exerted by the pressure bubble, stabilizing the perforator to make the cut. It is this feature that allows MCR’s perforators to function properly in plugged pipe situations.

    Stuck Pipe Log 

    When wellsite problems occur, Renegade has the full range of options to successfully free stuck pipe.

    The stuck pipe log uses acoustic measurement techniques to provide a continuous record and evaluation of a stuck pipe string. This logging service can be performed through drill pipe, casing, or tubing to identify problem areas. 

    Acoustic pulses, initiated at the instrument’s transmitter, travel through the pipe string and are measured at the receiver. The acoustic energy level at the receiver is proportional to the degree of stuck pipe. Similar to conventional cement bond logging measurements, low attenuation readings indicate free pipe and high attenuation readings indicate stuck pipe. 

    The stuck pipe log is superior to free point evaluation because the stuck pipe log is used to determine multiple stuck points throughout the well instead of just the first problem area. With a complete picture of the situation, an informed decision and subsequent pipe recovery plan can be devised, saving time and money. 

    • Piezoelectric crystals used in transmitters and receivers

    LOCAL EXPANDER™ ANNULAR SQUEEZE TOOL 

    PROVEN ANNULAR ZONAL ISOLATION USING LOCALIZED CASING EXPANSION – GAS MIGRATION IS NO LONGER A THREAT TO WELL INTEGRITY OR ECONOMICS OF DEVELOPED ASSETS. 

    For decades, operators and service companies have attempted to minimize problems impacting aging oil and gas wells. Over time, micro-annulus can form in the cement/casing bond of the wellbore, creating potential flow paths to the surface and compromising wellbore integrity.  Inconsistencies such as gaps, channels and voids between the casing, cement and formation are problematic for even the most advanced slurries. This has long plagued oil and gas wells, especially in abandoned wells where methane leaks are common and present an environmental risk. Now Renegade offers a proven solution.

    LOCAL EXPANSION IS A SIMPLE WAY TO SEAL MICRO-ANNULI AND STOP UNWANTED GAS FLOW. THIS ONE-RUN TOOL LEVERAGES A TELESCOPING CONE THAT EXPANDS A RADIAL SET OF HARDENED KNUCKLE-BENT FINGERS INTO THE CASING.

    This new process involves a retractable, expandable mechanical device that induces plastic deformation and elongation of the inner diameter of the casing string. The result is the outer diameter of the casing expanding into the cement. The associated volume reduction in the annulus closes micro-annuli defects in the cement and results in an overall densification of the cement. This alternative offers rigless remediation of annular gas/fluid migration.   

    Developed by Shell, this new process involves imposing permanent deformation on the casing pipe to locally enlarge its diameter. It operates in a mechanical, fully controlled manner and can be quickly repeated at any target interval for engineered redundancy to fully eliminate all micro-annuli and backside gas flow problems with confidence. 

    HOW IT WORKS

    THE LOCAL EXPANDER™ APPLIES AN ACTUAL SQUEEZE TO THE EXISTING CEMENT BY EXPANDING THE CASING INTERNALLY. 
    • Fingers at the top end of the tool are pressed outward by an actuated cone. 
    • The fingers expand the casing into the cement. 
    • RESULT: The cement is locally densified, and any gaps or small channels are sealed.  
    CONVEYED VIA ELECTRIC WIRELINE 

    The tool creates a series of crimps in the casing that eliminate the micro-annulus. By using an electric line and having a one-run tool, the Local Expander has achieved the same results as a conventional squeeze but at a fraction of the cost and effort. 

    SAFETY 

    Safety concern for workover operations is also significantly minimized with the implementation of the Local Expander. Crimping casing close to the surface allows crews to work under much safer conditions knowing there is no gas seepage to the surface. 

    PLUG AND ABANDON 

    Wells scheduled to be permanently taken out of service must be totally sealed not only at the surface but throughout the casing string. This means no leaks of any kind. This often results in a backlog of wells waiting for P&A. The Local Expander is the trusted choice for scheduled P&A because it can affordably seal any leaks prior to P&A. Once gas migration leaks are sealed, plug and abandonment can proceed.

    Case Study: Pennsylvania DEP grants permission for operator to P&A well after expansion service 

    SHELL CANADA IN GROUNDBIRCH STOPS GAS IN THE MONTNEY BASIN 

    The Local Expander has exceeded expectations in recent field tests with the Shell Canada Production Team. The results were impressive on the first two wells, with SCVF reduced from 500 liters/day to 0.00 liters/day. They are expecting to fully eliminate gas seepage on future wells and have built the Local Expander into their programs as a full part of their service. 

    REGULATORY 

    The Local Expander is the preferred solution for regulatory departments because it repairs micro annulus without the use of chemicals and perforation. Pennsylvania DEP and Colorado’s Oil & Gas Commission are two of several agencies advocating the importance of eliminating gas migration from the wellbore. 

    ENVIRONMENTAL 

    Because there are no permanently deployable tools, products, or chemicals, the Local Expander leads the industry as an alternative service that leaves no trace beyond the intended service.

      INTEGRATING CRANE SERVICES WITH WIRELINE OPERATIONS PROVIDE EFFICIENCY AND COST-SAVINGS TO THE OPERATOR

      Decrease your logistics concerns with Renegade crane services

      Successful wireline operations depend on many variables, but foremost is a well-trained and organized crew and the right equipment. Moving and lifting equipment while rigging up and rigging down is a critical part of wellsite operations and one of the most demanding. Bringing in a third-party operator to handle this operation can lead to miscommunication, mistakes and even possible injury. Plus, the added burden of paperwork and project managing the vendor can quickly add costs to the operation. 

      Renegade Wireline Services provide a full range of cranes for wellsite support. Along with this comes the knowledge, experience and safety methods that only thoroughly trained personnel can provide.

      Permian Basin 30 to 55 TON  
      Northeast 50 to 110 TON  
      Gulf 40 to 50 TON  
      Rockies 30 to 50 TON  
      » Renegade has a wide range of crane capacities for every job.

      Renegade crane equipment and personnel directly support wireline operations by suspending the lubricator assembly and BHA over the well. The operator is responsible for rigging up the frac iron before the job starts and again when it is finished. This equipment is also used to hoist or move heavy equipment, as well as picking up gear such as coil tubing injector heads. Larger well pads require cranes with a longer reach, so larger capacity cranes are used in these circumstances.  

      While the lifting capacity of cranes can vary, the correct size is selected based on how heavy the equipment is and how far away it must be handled. Most cranes operated by Renegade have 50-ton and 110-ton capacity and a variety of operating ranges.    

      Bringing in a third-party crew can be both expensive and less efficient. Crew members who work together daily can anticipate challenges that arise during completion operations and remedy them with the best solution. The primary advantage of Renegade Services providing wellsite crane operations is one integrated team at the wellsite familiar with and sharing common best practices, lessons learned, and safety procedures.

      MINIMIZE RISK AND MAXIMIZE EFFICIENCY WITH RENEGADE PRESSURE CONTROL EQUIPMENT 

      Renegade can manage your pressure control equipment for streamlined logistics

      Maintaining the correct pressure is critical when completing a well. You need the right equipment to make the entire system succeed, from lubricator assembly to the grease head. Pumping large volumes of fluid at high pressure can pose a risk if not done correctly. Properly maintained equipment run by qualified personnel is Renegade Services key to successful wellsite operations. 

      Oil well blowouts are easily the most catastrophic incident that can occur on a rig site. A blowout causes significant damage to the environment, the rig and significantly increases the risk of injury or even death to workers. Blowouts also cause lost production time and negatively impact the operators bottom line. Proper pressure control within the system is more than just a good practice; it’s an essential part of managing potential hazards. 

      Proper pressure control measures result in safe working conditions on location. Most companies hire third-party operators to manage this process. However, when more outside contractors are brought in, the process becomes less efficient, and the risk of mishandling pressure control equipment increases. Renegade Services provides its own highly trained staff to run pressure control equipment during completions operations. This combination reduces risk, protects the well and offers significant peace of mind.

      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.

With an innovative design, RigLock has simple mechanisms to close-in well pressure especially under conditions presented by high-pressure formations.

      Engineered for extreme conditions

      RigLock conquers the challenging environments of high-pressure with three levels of safety. Well intervention teams, responsible for high-pressure operations, will benefit from increased productivity while improving safety on location. The engineered construction is composed of a limited number of moving parts which reduces maintenance time and improves operations while also increasing usability. With RigLock, the adapter or nightcap initiates the connection. The hydraulically actuated lock ring lowers to complete it.

      Radial Cement Bond Log 

      Accurate information of cement channeling behind casing

      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.  

      This cement bond tool consists of oil-filled, pressure-compensated transmitter and receiver sections. The transmitter and both receivers are ceramic to withstand the hostile high temperature of well environments. Upon each transmitter firing, data from all the receivers is digitized and stored in internal memory, then sequentially transmitted to the surface. 

      The digital signal section is capable of transmitting data to the surface from tools run below the RCBL such as gamma ray, casing collar log (CCL), in-line neutron, compensated neutron or other tools with one or two pulse channels. 

      Transmission of the sonic data to the surface is accomplished by an internal controller which transmits eight to sixteen signals from radial receivers/sectors, a composite 3-ft signal (sum of all eight radial signals), a 5-ft receiver signal, and an internally generated calibration signal. Transmission of the remaining signals consists of digitally encoded data transmitted after the acoustic signals.

      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

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.
