Electronically activated nonexplosive wireline cutter

Rendering of the electronically activated nonexplosive wireline cutter.

The eCutter™ electronically activated nonexplosive wireline cutter drops from surface to sever slicklines and cables when a toolstring becomes stuck downhole. Rather than being activated by impact, the cutter relies on a specialized electronic timer and trigger module to perform clean, precise cable cuts in a wide range of wire sizes from 0.108-in slickline to 0.313-in heavy-duty, high-strength cable.

  • Deviated wells
  • Complex-geometry wells
  • Pumpdown deployment
