» 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 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.
