Hunting Digital Freepoint Tool Speeds Stuck Pipe Recovery

Sponsored by Businesswire

Titan Division of Hunting Energy Services, a subsidiary of Hunting PLC, the international energy services company, today introduced its Digital Freepoint Tool. The tool transmits real-time data processed from movements in the downhole assembly that allows operators to determine where their tubulars are stuck in the borehole, and make rapid and informed decisions in recovering the immobilized assembly.

The tool’s Hall Effect sensor picks up movements in the assembly associated with tension, compression, or torque and converts that to an AC signal. This signal is sent up hole and processed at the surface by the Digital Freepoint Panel or SDS Warrior System.

With accurate data in hand, the operator has the ability to fire a jet cutter or string shot below the tool in the same run.
