Cutters & Pipe Recovery

Cutters

Falcon can offer a range of cutting devices including most explosive types, the chemical cutter and the Sondex electric downhole cutter.

One of our preferred cutting options is the Owen SplitShot cutter. This tool creates a vertical cut in the connection or collar of the tubular allowing the joint to be “popped” with great ease. Because the cut is vertical (magnets are use to decentralize the cutter) rather than radial the tool needs less explosive material and does not have to be closely matched to the internal diameter of the tubular. This creates a virtuous circle; the cutter is small diameter and therefore very flexible in term of running environment, easily passing restrictions in the completion. The cutting technique and relative lack of explosives means that tubular flare and associated retrieval problems are no longer an issue. Unlike the chemical cutter, the risk to drill floor personnel is very low and no decontamination facilities are required.

Pipe Recovery

For drillpipe recovery we offer freepoint services followed by explosive backoff. This service is delivered by experience engineers with many years experience on stuck pipe operations. We use an electrically anchoring freepoint tool with compression, tension and torque sensors indicating if the tool is above or below the stuck point. Upon identifying the stuck point our engineer will recommend the right amount of explosive and the appropriate amount of torque to be applied to the pipe in order to maximize chances of backing of the pipe. Our experience is key to the success of the operation!
