Nonexplosive Setting Tool - ReSOLVE Service | Schlumberger

Nonexplosive Setting Tool

Large confirmed force and variable setting speed

Reliable, low-risk alternative to explosives

The ReSOLVE instrumented wireline intervention service includes a hydraulically powered, nonexplosive setting tool that delivers a large force of up to 78,000 lbf for setting plugs and packers. With real-time confirmation reporting of the setting force applied and a variable setting speed, the setting tool is a reliable, low-risk alternative to the conventional use of explosives to set plugs and packers. Not using explosives provides a significant advantage for operations in locations where explosives security and safety concerns can complicate logistics and cause delays.

Unlike conventional explosives-actuated plug-setting tools, ReSOLVE service’s setting tool can be performance tested at the surface before deployment, and radio silence is not necessary during operations.

 These broken 55,000-lbf tension studs are from reliability testing of ReSOLVE service during which a single setting tool performed hundreds of simulated plug sets.
