ReSOLVE Machining Tool
Precise machining of completion elements with real-time measurement of milling progress.
Multiple, confirmed shifts in a single run
Both the ReSOLVE instrumented wireline intervention service and ReSOLVE iX extreme-performance instrumented wireline intervention service use a smart shifting tool (SST) that can be closed and opened on command for performing multiple shifts in any direction and in one run, whether to a single component or multiple components in multizone completions. The SST is paired with the high-expansion anchor and high-force linear actuator, for which forces and displacements are measured to confirm that the expected force and distance were achieved.
When the tool is run in hole, the SST keys are fully retracted to enable the tool to pass restrictions. To latch a selected completion component, the SST radially extends profile keys with a specified preload force. The extended keys remain compliant to navigate well geometry.
Once the SST is latched into the profile of the component, the anchor secures the tool in the well, and the linear actuator extends or retracts to shift the component. The keys fully retract to enable the tool to pass restrictions.
