Down-hole Cutting Technology - Oil & Gas


Down-hole Cutting Technology - Oil & Gas

PROBLEM: Down-hole blockages (broken valves, debris, etc.) are very costly, and existing cutting methods are unable to cut through some debris

PROCESS:

  • Reviewed and analyzed number of candidate technologies to extend cutting capabilities
  • Designed and built prototype fixtures of best perceived technologies
  • Refined best approaches through further design and testing

RESULT: New slickline conveyed, battery powered, phase change cooled, down-hole cutting technology using proprietary motor technology, that can mill through previously unmillable materials. Each use of this product could save millions in potentially lost revenue from a previously unrepairable well
