Downhole Electric Cutting Tool (DECT)
The Alkhorayef Downhole Electric Cutting Tool (DECT) is a mechanical pipe cutter that meets industry demands for safe, reliable, high precision cutting operations without using dangerous chemicals or explosives. The DECT can be used tubular cutting in horizontal and vertical oil and gas wells, and in brine or drilling mud.
The DECT cuts oilfield tubulars with precision control leaving a machine shop quality finish. The remaining pipe can easily be fished using industry standard techniques, removing the need for subsequent cleanup operations. The depth of penetration can be accurately controlled preventing damage to external casing strings and enabling packer retrieval operations to be undertaken.
The DECT can be deployed on mono-conductor wireline, coil tubing, and tractor. Depth correlation is achieved by utilizing an analog casing collar locator (CCL).
