Non-Explosive Setting Tool


NON-EXPLOSIVE SETTING TOOL

The Non-Explosive Setting Tool (NEST) is a battery-operated, timer-based device that enables downhole tools to be set without the use of explosives. The NEST displaces conventional gas-generating setting tools that rely on explosives as a means of generating the required force. The NEST eliminates the hazards associated with the handling and storing of explosives.

APPLICATIONS

Setting bridge plugs and packers of all kinds, both permanent and retrievable
 

KEY FEATURES

  • The tool provides confirmation of correct setting, either instantly with e-line or on surface with slick-line, ensuring operational efficiency
  • The thread connections at the lower end of the tool comply with the standards adopted for all such setting tools and is compatible with existing adapter kits, improving operational flexibility
  • The NEST contains no explosives, avoiding the issues and costs commonly associated with the handling, storing, importing, and exporting of such materials


BENEFITS

  • Prior to running in the wellbore, the NEST can be fully tested at the surface to verify functionality and determine that sufficient battery power exists to complete the run, reducing the potential for a miss-run and avoiding non-productive time.
  • Unlike explosive tools, the NEST does not produce any noxious gasses that the person redressing it would be exposed to, enhancing worker safety at the jobsite.
