Chemical cutters dissolve pipe with a clean cut that leaves no debris and does not require milling prior to pipe retrieval. The tool can be adapted for many special cutting applications where other cutting methods may be ineffective or undesirable.
Chemical cutters can shorten operating time and reduce rig costs. Additionally, they can be used to release specially designed permanent packers and to cut pipe and casing during plug
and abandonment operations.
During drilling operations, an occasional unplanned event will arise where recovery of stuck pipe is required. It may be in the form of a backoff or the use of cutters. Halliburton has a range of products providing recovery.
