precision, complete, comprehensive, P&A (Plug and Abandon)

There comes a point when the work on every well-bore operation is complete. Everything that can possibly be extracted from the site has already been done. But closing up the operation requires just as much careful attention as the first part of drilling, if not more so. You need to do things the right way so that it doesn’t leave behind environmental damage and risks of future problems. Such problems can happen for a variety of reasons, but we want to do as much as we can to minimize our possible involvement.

That’s where the plug and abandon stage of production comes into effect. Renegade Wireline Services plays an important part in this process. We shoot the squeeze holes, set plugs, and dump bail cement to aid in the abandonment of a well. Getting this part right is very important in order to protect the freshwater zone.

This process involves multiple steps. We do not simply pump cement and leave. Doing it properly means taking every step to try to prevent oil well leaks in the future. At the same time, because the field is mature, it’s also important to manage costs and time.

We take the same care at this stage as we do during completions or any other phase to cautiously manage time and costs to help our customer avoid unnecessary expenditures during the final days of closing up the site.

Renegade Wireline Services is with you throughout the entire process. From managing your operation to successfully and thoroughly closing up the well-bore to repairing any sustained casing pressure or annulus that may be detcted. Renegade Services has the technical expertise to get the job done right and the commitment to your specific project.

» IDC Tool.

IDC Tool

The Insulation-Displacement Contact (IDC) tool 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 blown up-hole, along the wellbore by fluid flow, or to hold a tool in place on an incline.

Special slips are available to enable the IDC to act as a gun braking system in the wellbore. The arms of the IDC provide an axial resistance to movement within the wellbore of approximately 300lbs, depending on well pressure. The tool is addressable and therefore multiple IDC tools can be deployed within a string.

The only restriction on placement is that each tool should have direct access to a cable conductor. The IDC requires only one conductor and ground for activation and employs a robust, field proven telemetry system designed for fail-safe operation.

The tool’s electronics can withstand up to 1000vac/1000vdc on its operating conductors. In the event of loss of communication to the tool, it can be withdrawn from the well through restrictions by closure of the load spring or shearing of the arm retaining pins.

 

APPLICATIONS

  • Highly Deviated Wells
  • Logging
  • Tractor operations
  • High-flow PL

NO WASH ISO SEAL

“NO WASH” PRODUCT

(IsoSeal-3) “NO WASH” is designed to eliminate radioactive residue in fluids or tubular goods in wells while being fractured, acidized, or cemented. The basic material (beads) has a lower density and higher sheer stress tolerance than other types of products being used. This material will not soften or disintegrate when immersed in liquids.

Proprietary processes are used to develop IsoSeal3 “NO WASH” into a superior product by a three-step formula.

I. Absorbent material (beads) are applied with appropriate compounds to make the desired radioactive isotope. (Examples: Iridium-192, Scandium-46, Antimony-124)

II. Sealant is applied by a special process to ensure complete encapsulation.

III. Sealed, encapsulated beads are shipped to a nuclear reactor for radioactive activation.

FEATURES OF ISOSEAL-3 “NO WASH” MATERIAL:

Has a lower density for use in almost all downhole frac or acidizing jobs.
Minimizes flowback of radioactive beads because it is made of solid particles with high shear tolerance.
Has low density, allowing for injection on the down stream side of frac or acid pumping equipment. This eliminates the possibility of a service company’s equipment becoming contaminated.
(IsoSeal-3) “NO WASH” has combined these features to allow longer periods before logging.

CIRCULATING PYRO 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. In most conditions, adequate flow into the annulus is required when expecting a successful cut while running an 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. MCR’s 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.

BENEFITS

  • Non-explosive
  • Non-hazmat rated fuel
  • Radio safe
  • Operates in temperatures up to 500°F (260°C) & pressures up to 25,000 psi (172.4 MPa)
  • Perforates all steel, high chrome, & plastic coated tubulars
  • Perforates in exotic fluids or dry pipe
  • Single/dual perforations in sizes from 0.38 in. (insert inches squared 2) to 7.0 in. (insert inches squared)
  • Deployable within hours and not days
  • Minimizes downtime and associated costs

 

OPERATION

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.

CPT’S ARE AVAILABLE FOR:

  • Standard applications
  • Undersized for restrictions
  • HP-HT environments
  • Custom tools available

 

SUPPORT TOOLS

GENERATOR SAFETY SLEEVE® (GSS)

  • Safely dissipates all thermal generator energy in the event of operator activation error on surface

KuTh Tool

KuTh tools supply information about the mineralogy of formations. The most frequent sources of natural radiation in the formations are thorium, uranium and potassium; the gamma rays generated by different elements or elementary interactions have different energy levels. The spectral gamma ray kut tool can identify the source of a particular gamma ray by measuring their amplitude or energy level. This way the tool can identify the amount of potassium, thorium, and uranium present in the shales and sands.

CASING INSPECTIONS

This page is dedicated to our Casing Inspection logging services. To see information about our combination casing inspection and radial cement bond log (Wellbore Integrity Presentation (WIP) Survey) Click Here.

A casing inspection log is a record of casing thickness and integrity. This log is used to determine whether or not the casing has undergone damage.

The casing inspection log identifies and quantifies corrosion damage. It identifies scale, wax, solids accumulation, and location of mechanical damage.

The multi-arm caliper (MAC) 60 is a state of the art, sophisticated logging tool that performs an accurate inspection of the casing interior. It is an integrated logging system enabling downhole data acquisition, high-speed data transmission to the surface, data processing, and vivid imaging of the inspected casing.

The data provided by the tool provides you with the knowledge necessary to plan cost-effective work-over and remedial operations.

This tool is designed with a small outside diameter with a large working range of measurement. The tool is capable of logging all weights of 4 1/2 inch through 10 3/4 inch casings. Each of the 60 arms sends an individual measurement to the surface. The actuation of each arm is converted to an electrical signal and transmitted above ground in a data frame consisting of a frame identifier, 60 arm channels, an electronics temperature data, and a checksum. The data is transmitted at a rate of 13 times per second. The surface equipment decodes the data frame and stores the data to disk.

The operator has the option of presenting the data in log form with various imaging presentations ranging from a cross-section of the casing to a 3-D type color enhanced visualization.

» Compensated Neutron Log.

COMPENSATED NEUTRON LOG

The dual detector compensated neutron log utilizes an Americium-241/Beryllium (AmBe) chemical source. Dual neutron detectors measure liquid filled porosity. Neutrons are primarily affected by hydrogen in the formation. With known corrections for the appropriate matrix (limestone, sand, or dolomite) a compensated neutron log is able to accurately determine porosity along with the presence of shale or gas behind the casing.

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 is able to make an informed decision about where and how they want to perforate the well.

RENEGADE GOES THE EXTRA MILE IN FISHING

It’s an unfortunate fact of the industry that sometimes tools get lost down-hole. Some companies take an unconcerned approach to the issue, merely notifying you that something has gone missing. You’re left on your own to find a way to retrieve the items. We take a more proactive approach.

Renegade doesn’t just inform you that a loss has occurred down-hole, but we help you solve the issue. We use a variety of retrieval tools while fishing a lost BHA.

The advantage of Renegade is that we eliminate a lot of the usual headaches you encounter in a typical wellbore production environment. Instead of leaving you with unresolved problems, we get the job done right. Even if it’s something we don’t immediately know how to do, we don’t rest until we find the solution.

RENEGADE’S HAG1℠ EFISHING℠ TOOL MORE COST EFFECTIVE THAN COIL TUBING

Renegade’s hydraulically actuated wireline grab is the latest game-changing device to be rolled out by the ever-evolving minds of Renegade Services.

HAG1℠ is the first device of its kind that uses a setting tool to collect the wireline in its jaws. Equipped with three hardened steel fingers that when ballistically initiated, grab the line through the stroking action of the setting tool with an unparalleled strength for a safe and successful retrieval of a wireline laden fish.

Unfortunately, the industry has seen a growing number of instances where the wrong valve is closed-in on wireline resulting in the loss of tools. As completions activity picks up, qualified and experienced personnel become stretched thin. When combined with the fast-paced routine of multi-well fracking, it has become evident that mistakes will happen.

For instance, a frac mistakenly shuts in the well that wireline is working in and cuts line at the surface. The HAG1℠ can be adapted to any setting tool and connects directly to the equipment that’s already on location. Now you can now restring, go right in and retrieve your line before a fishing service can even get mobilized. The time and money saved in this scenario outweighs the cost investment.

Before the development of Renegade’s HAG1℠, a mistake of this nature would have resulted in the expensive and time-consuming mobilization of coil-tubing to fish the tool.

Having HAG1℠ in-house now prepares you for the inevitable.

» During traditional wireline operation, the line is subject to contact with multiple segments of casing, collars and wipers. Each touch point increases the friction applied to the line. Because it does not use collars, wipers and tubes, greaseless line drastically reduces friction and tension resulting in lower line tensions during pump-down operations.

renegade services no mess HSE icon

RENEGADE SERVICES USES GREASELESS LINE FOR Environmentally-FRIENDLY SUCCESS

During conventional wireline operations the grease that’s pumped into the grease head tends to be spread across location. This creates a greater environmental impact on the site, which either leaves a big mess behind or presents the need to be cleaned up. Communities are increasingly concerned about the environmental impact of drilling and don’t understand the real issues involved. Grease easily slings off of sheave wheels and hangs in the air, creating a major problem everywhere. In many ways, it’s one of the biggest hassles on a frac site.

Choosing the right line to run is more important than some may realize. The conventional line has two sets of outer armor wires with a conductor in the middle, but requires a grease injection head to seal the line. It’s messy, inefficient, and not the most environmentally-friendly solution.

Fortunately, this is a headache that’s preventable. Renegade Services uses Streamline® greaseless line, which has been used successfully on thousands runs. Renegade was one of the first to implement it in 2014 and brings years of expertise in its use to every job.

Greaseless line is the best choice for many reasons. Along with the two sets of armor wires around a conductor, the greaseless line is also coated with a non-stick chemical, which eliminates the need for supplemental grease. Even though it has a greater upfront cost, it saves money in the end because there isn’t the additional need to pump in grease to seal conventional lines, and because it is also an environmentally-friendly alternative and there is no clean-up required. This is an increasingly important issue on today’s completions sites.

Count on the experience & efficiency of the right environmentally friendly line for the job. Eliminate the mess from traditional wireline grease and eliminate the need for costly wellsite cleanup when you choose Renegade Services.

Addressable Perforating Software

[et_pb_dcsbcm_divi_breadcrumbs_module hide_currentbreadcrumb=”off” _builder_version=”4.7.7″ hover_enabled=”0″ fontsbreadcrumbs_font_size_tablet=”51″ fontsbreadcrumbs_line_height_tablet=”2″ fontsseperator_font_size_tablet=”51″ fontsseperator_line_height_tablet=”2″ fontsbreadcrumblinks_font_size_tablet=”51″ fontsbreadcrumblinks_line_height_tablet=”2″ custom_margin=”-0.5%|||-11.1%|false|false” sticky_enabled=”0″][/et_pb_dcsbcm_divi_breadcrumbs_module]

ADDRESSABLE PERFORATING SOFTWARE USES TECHNOLOGY TO REMOVE HUMAN ERROR

Digital technology meets the completions industry. The latest software guides the perforating process with the help of computer precision. The old way of conducting this process was to use a traditional blasting cap, which allowed the operator to push a series of buttons and send a signal down the line, initiating the explosive sequence. However, the old way of using traditional blasting caps had the disadvantage of being subject to human error. This was particularly because explosives were involved—mistakes could be critically dangerous and costly. The newer system of perforating is much more precise, organized, and pre-planned.

The new Addressable Perforating System assigns a unique IP address to each individual detonator. It is then programmed to go off with a certain command and cannot accidentally be detonated until it receives its own unique, pre-determined code. DynaEnergetics is working in partnership with Renegade to offer this technology in the advanced perforating environment. The system is closed, meaning that the DynaEnergetics equipment can only be used with Dyna style components. Other perforating must be done with a completely separate panel.

One of the other big benefits the DynaEnergetics addressable system offers is that it can also be used for other purposes. Each tool can be assigned a code using this technology, from the release tool to through gun string and ending up at the setting tool in the gun string. It also allows the opportunity to skip over specific guns if a misfire occurs. This provides more specificity and control. In turn, this reduces the overall wireline mis-run rate.

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

CRANE SERVICES FROM RENEGADE ENHANCE WIRELINE OPERATIONS  

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 30-55 TON  
Northeast 50-110 TON  
Gulf 40-50 TON  
Rockies 30-50 TON  

 

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.

» Art tool diagram.

Art Tool

The ART-H is intended for use in horizontal and highly deviated wells in conjunction with down-hole tractor devices where the controllable release of all or part of a stuck tool-string is required. The tool can replace the able weak point, thereby improving operational safety, or be used to release a specific section of a tool string below a tractor, such as a partially set plug or expanded gun string.

The tool is specifically intended for use above a down-hole tractor, but can also be deployed below. The tool can also be deployed with electric-line equipped coiled tubing.

The ART-H is designed to withstand the high voltages used to drive down-hole tractors and is able to carry a maximum safe working load of three tonnes and a fishing load (post-release) of ten tonnes. A number of fail-safe mechanisms are incorporated into the device to ensure safe and reliable operation. These include encoded data transmission and validation of user-selectable code, a minimum well pressure for activation and non-operation in the event of a seal failure.

Up to seven ART’s can be run in a single tool-string, including mixed -H, -A and -B types.

Once released, a fishing neck remains to facilitate further recovery operations, with both upper and lower heads being pressure isolated to prevent entry of well fluids. Until release, the entire tool is pressure sealed, thereby minimizing maintenance and service time.

The ART-H is available with interfaces to suit most tractor/logging tool combinations in use.

 

Applications

• Release of Stuck Down-hole Tractors
• Release of Partially Set Plugs/Packers
• Release of Damaged Gun Strings
• Release of Stuck Logging Tools

Head Tension Service

[et_pb_dcsbcm_divi_breadcrumbs_module hide_currentbreadcrumb=”off” _builder_version=”4.7.7″ hover_enabled=”0″ fontsbreadcrumbs_font_size_tablet=”51″ fontsbreadcrumbs_line_height_tablet=”2″ fontsseperator_font_size_tablet=”51″ fontsseperator_line_height_tablet=”2″ fontsbreadcrumblinks_font_size_tablet=”51″ fontsbreadcrumblinks_line_height_tablet=”2″ custom_margin=”4%|||23.6%|false|false” sticky_enabled=”0″][/et_pb_dcsbcm_divi_breadcrumbs_module]

Head tension service offers real-time views of tool string activity.

Today’s highly commoditized NAM frac industrial drilling rigs are being pushed to finish wells faster, which often leads to the wellbore not being as straight and precise as necessary. This directly affects pump down operations by introducing severe doglegs and toe up conditions. Successful plug and perf operations require that the gun string to be run in and out of the well in rapid succession with as little restriction as possible. These undesirable conditions can complicate the process of successfully reaching a target depth, or for that matter, pulling the tool string back to surface from that depth. It can be difficult to see the forces being applied to the tool while traversing these unique wells. Tools can easily be lost during the pumping process, which can increase the time and cost of completion.

Wireline operators closely monitor the tension being applied to their BHA by a weight indicator. The weight indicator is a standard device used to measure the tension on the wireline but often cannot detect problems until it’s too late. Monitoring weight at surface alone is not sufficient. Pumping operations and downhole conditions can alter the accuracy of the weight indicator. This inaccurate data means tools can’t be fully monitored and problems cannot be foreseen.

The head tension tool provides accurate insight into pump down operations and offers a real-time advantage over weight indicators.
