Electronically activated nonexplosive wireline cutter
Battery-powered electronic activation reliably severs slickline or cable when a toolstring sticks downhole.
The Heavy-Duty Peak eCutter electronically activated nonexplosive wireline cutter extends the reliability and accuracy of the industry-leading Peak eCutter cutter to high-temperature operations and heavy-duty cables, from 0.3125 to 0.59 in, even in highly deviated wells, highly viscous fluids, and complex geometry wells. Pumpdown systems are available on request.
The integral electronic time and trigger module can introduce a time-based delay based on preprogrammed time intervals to elapse before the cutting function is activated. Custom programming of the countdown time is available. Because the power-charged cutter is nonpyrotechnic, operational safety is enhanced and no radio-frequency silence is required.
The features of the unique electronically activated nonexplosive wireline cutter are outlined and several case studies presented from onshore and offshore operations.
