Run on e-line, the EZ CUTTER instrument is the latest technologically advanced casing cutter that enables clean and perfectly controlled cuts without using explosives, chemicals or other expensive Work-Over alternatives. Simplifying transportation, logistics and safety issues, EZ CUTTER can now be deployed on any logging unit. Its only significant requirement is conductive fluid in the well, like brine or sea water.
Changing the position of leaching strings when developing salt caverns or re-accessing underground works with bent/collapsed pipes are often delicate and costly combined operations. The availability of a small size instrument able to cut both inner and outer pipes already proved to be of great interest in many configurations.
