Efficient, safe drill pipe, liner, tubing and casing recovery operations without the need for explosives.
The Well Cutter uses a rotating head to remove pipe incrementally, which prevents the creation of shavings. Due to the smooth, bevelled surface it produces, a polishing trip with drill pipe may be eliminated for increased operational efficiency.
A key benefit of the Well Cutter is that it eliminates the use of explosives which can pose an operational risk, especially when simultaneous operations are being conducted. The transfer of explosives may also cause complex logistics and significant operational delays, making the Well Cutter an attractive alternative for pipe recovery operations. Conveyed on e-line for accurate depth control, the Well Cutter incorporates a ‘fail-safe’ mechanism that prevents the tool from getting stuck.
