    » Renegade’s fleet of wireline trucks provide top-level perforating services in all U.S. oil and gas basins.


    Renegade has a full range of services, equipment and expertise to establish communication between the formation and the wellbore to get the well flowing and then maintain production throughout the life of the well.  

    Customized perforating gun systems and thorough pre-planning help ensure the gun meets the specific need of the well, every time.

    Perforating is an important part of the hydraulic fracturing process, but it is not a one-size-fits-all proposition; precise tool configuration should be a priority. Hole diameter, penetration depth, shot spacing and number of shots are all critical to properly fracturing a difficult zone. Renegade provides the precise gun configuration that you need to get the right-sized perforation to meet the specifications of each well. Although speed and efficiency are top priorities, we don’t sacrifice precision or safety. Each perforating gun is custom built to meet the requirements of the individual job. We offer a variety of sizes, lengths, charges and performance specifications that work with a variety of tools and manufacturers. 

    Wellsite coordination is key to a successful frac 

    At the wellsite, each stage of a frac job requires multiple companies to work together to successfully complete the job. Coordinating these efforts can be time consuming. The success of every well completion depends on having the right equipment, the right crew, and a precise system that eliminates the risk of unnecessary delays. At Renegade, our vendor relationships are at the heart of our business. Our exceptional vendor relationships mean Renegade can source the right tool and get it to the rig site quickly. We maintain excellent relationships with our vendors which insures a quick response to special requests.  

    » Perforation string design can be configured to provide the maximum formation coverage.

    Renegade’s commitment to safety has long been established by many industry-leading processes 

    Committed to 100% intrinsically safe detonators  In 2015 and 2016 when many service providers were switching to a less-safe, EB platform, Renegade continued with intrinsically safe shooting systems, which do not sacrifice detonator quality and safety. 

    Implementation of digital platforms and enhanced communication  Our real-time job monitoring system provides instant notifications and reporting for management and customers.

    Training programs for employees  Renegade maintains regular training calendars for all roles. 

    Extensive pre-job equipment checks facilitate safety and accuracy  Before the job begins, the Renegade crew calibrates all equipment.

    SSE Mentorship Program  Short Service Employee (SSE) participants are identified prior to each perforating job. Renegade assigns experienced employees to oversee the daily activities of those assigned to the SSE program to prevent work-related injuries to new hires and temporary workers.

      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.

      » Our wellsite production logging supervisors have over 25 years’ experience running production logging services and can recommend the treatment options in case remedial operations are needed.

      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.  


      • 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
