      Impact Selector’s Xcalibur E-line wireline jar is a powerful yet cost effective way to reduce risk in electric wireline cased hole operations.

      With the smaller cables used for cased hole operations there is often a very limited amount of overpull available to free stuck tools.

      The Xcalibur jar acts to greatly increase the force available at the cablehead through using energy stored in compressed springs and the wireline itself to create a powerful upwards impulse on the tools. As the force acts on the bottom of the jar, the cablehead is protected from the impact and remains unaffected.

      The jar activation force can be easily adjusted at surface while in the string to account for different operations.
      Available in a range of sizes and with all major types of mono-conductor connection, Xcalibur is ideal for most logging, perforating, pipe recovery and plug setting operations.

                  • Low maintenance requirements

                  • Available for all tubing sizes

                    Benefits:

                    • Reach extended depths and higher deviations without the need for costly services such as coiled tubing or wireline tractors.

                    • Lower pickup weight means reduced wire loading.

                    • More effective and visible jarring at greater depth or higher deviation due to efficient transfer of mass.

                    • Maintain completion integrity by protecting coated and high-chrome tubulars.

                    • Improve data quality by eliminating stick-slip and achieving more constant logging speeds.

                      Operators can perform the work using the same equipment without changing wireline operating procedures resulting in time savings with less risk. This is the most efficient conveyance system available for deviated intervention work when used in conjunction with E-line, slickline and other Roller Bogie tools.

                      Used in most wellbore conditions, up to 87° deviation, Guide Roller Bogie tools are installed on the bottom end of the tool string.

                      With independent swiveling, the self-orienting roller body ensures the rollers are oriented at all times to the low side of the tubing. The tool string is lifted onto large, highly efficient rollers, eliminating contact friction and enabling easier and deeper wellbore access. Running weight remains positive and steady; pick-up weight is greatly reduced and the risk of wire breakage is lowered.

                      Guide Roller Bogie tools are available in a wide range of sizes to pass through all wellbore restrictions and can be ordered with a choice of connection types to suit individual tool string requirements.

                      Features:

                      • Ballistic durable with sealed bearings

                          Benefits:

                          • Lifting force placed at tangent reduces contact with the bore wall.

                          • Creates standoff which significantly reduces abnormal contact friction.

                          • Reduces fishing operations by 90%

                            I-Wheels can be placed anywhere along the tool string. I-Wheels create low contact areas that keep the tool body off the low side of the bore wall, with a gap to pass over problem areas. They are efficient, consistent, and reliable tools in highly deviated wells up to 84° and reduce modelled friction by up to 80%.

                            Cased Hole I-Wheels are routinely used to convey perforating guns. They can be placed above, below, or between gun sections, with the detonating cord run through the mandrel. They allow the gun to rotate independently of the wheels, assisting on the orientation of shot in high-or low side perforating.

                            A wide range-of I-Wheel designs are available for any tubing, casing, or borehole size. Optional in-line or over-body-variants enable the best tool configuration tor optimum deployment. Custom-engineered sizing and bespoke mounting vadants are developed by Impact Selector upon request to suit specific applications and well conditions. Environmental Specifications

                              Benefits:

                              • Reduces cost, reaches extended depths and higher deviation without the need for more costly interventions services.

                              • Reduces risk, no power required from surface to operate OPT.

                                  Impact Selector’s Oriented Perforating Tool (OPT) is a wireline deployed passive roller platform which is used in combination with Impact Selector’s Roller Bogie® conveyance system.

                                  The OPT is connected to the bottom of the gun string, ensuring that the gun rotates and the perforating charges are positioned at the preferred orientation in relation to the low side. This method ensures that pro- duction opportunity is optimized by perforating in the desired fracture plane.

                                  The OPT is made up of modular weight-biased sections that combine to deliver torque to the gun assembly, rotating the guns to the desired direction of fire. Gun alignment is adjusted manually on surface using an indexing system to select the required orientation prior to running in hole.

                                  The dial up indexing feature of the OPT ensures fast orientation set up. Unlike certain other systems, the OPT places no restriction on the size or type of shape charge that can be used.

                                  The OPT has been used globally with a proven track record of success, reducing both cost and risk in perforating operations.

                                        • Operational limitations.

                                          As an integral part of Impact Selector’s Intelligent Conveyance Solutions, pre-job modeling provides the service company and operator with insights into optimum tool string design, wire selection and other operational fundamentals.

                                          The results of pre-job modelling such as availability of overpull at target depth can be used to calculate the best setting for an open or cased hole wireline jar to avoid accidental firing when pulling out of hole, but ensure the jar will fire before maximum pull at surface is reached.

                                          Impact Selector has conducted in-house testing to measure the friction reduction capabilities of our Roller Bogie and I-Wheel tools when strategically placed along any wireline tool string. When the results of these tests are combined with the ability to reduce the resistive frictional forces of independent tools in a computer model the output clearly demonstrates and quantifies the benefits of roller systems.
