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.
Renegade Rocks 24/7 Pipe Recovery ServicePipe recovery is a wireline procedure implemented when a drill string is lodged downhole due to mechanical or differential sticking. Stuck pipe is one of the most costly challenges on a drill site, accounting for close to 50% of the well’s cost, causing delays of drill rig operation, increases downtime and increases production expense. Until the sticking is resolved, drill rig production ceases and can translate to downtime costs of around $10,000 - $1,000,000 daily. The recovery process starts with finding the specific problematic locations using a stuck pipe log. Fishing tools are then deployed to extricate the pipe from the downhole. Renegade utilizes the logging to get extensive data on multiple stuck points and uses the information to formulate the most time and cost-effective plan to free the stuck pipe. The log helps determine where the pipe is free and where it is stuck. This process is more beneficial than a using a free point evaluation as the log tracks multiple stuck point locations versus only one point. The log information helps in making the best data-driven decisions for the recovery operation to ultimately save downtime and the associated expenses. Methods used in freeing stuck pipe include backing off and cutting. Backing off is a process where the threading is unscrewed at a predetermined wellbore depth. Cutting can be done with chemical, mechanical or explosive cutters. It is crucial to back off or cut where the pipe is free to ensure a successful recovery. After the free pipe has been separated from the stuck section, an overshot is used to retrieve the rest of the material. The recovery procedure is also financially beneficial during Plugging and Abandoning (P & A) operations in removing installed pipe that’s no longer needed. The recovered pipe can then be reused or sold.

MCR Oil Tool’s radial cutting torch (RCT) is a patented cutting device used to sever tubing, casing, drill pipe, and coiled tubing without the use of explosives or hazardous materials, making it one of the safest pipe cutting tools on the market.
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.
