GREASELESS LINE FOR ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY PUMP-DOWN OPERATIONS
During a conventional pump-down job, the grease that’s pumped into the grease head can spread to other components and rigsite equipment. Grease easily slings off sheave wheels and hangs in the air, creating an environmental concern, that needs to be remediated. In many ways, it’s one of the biggest issues on a frac site.
Choosing the right line to run is more important than some may realize. Conventional wireline 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.
Renegade uses Streamline® greaseless line, which has been used successfully on thousands runs, to remedy this problem. Renegade was one of the first to introduce greaseless line in 2014 and brings years of expertise to every job. Greaseless line is the best choice for many reasons. Along with two sets of armor wires around the conductor, the greaseless line is coated with a non-stick chemical, which eliminates the need for supplemental grease.
With Renegade you can count on the experience and efficiency of the right environmentally-friendly line for the job. Even though it has a greater upfront cost, greaseless line saves money in the end because there isn’t the additional need to pump grease to seal conventional lines. It is an environmentally-friendly alternative and there is no clean-up required. This is an increasingly important issue on today’s completions sites.
Renegade eliminates the mess from traditional wireline grease and the need for costly wellsite cleanup that goes with using it.
