The HydraArchimedes™ tool is developed to enhance the quality of the cross section plug for P&A and slot recovery applications utilizing the HydraSystem™ tools.
The HydraArchimedes™ tool is rotated in wet cement forcing cement to be squeezed through the perforations, filling the annulus. The cement is pushed/squeezed out the perforation holes by the HydraArchimedes™ curved scowls rubber blades, acting on the cement both hydraulically, by generating high/low pressure regimes, as well as mechanically displacement.
The HydraArchimedes™ tool is connected directly above the HydraWash™ tool. After perforating the casing, the interval is washed with the HydraWash™ until sufficient pump rates are achieved. A ball is dropped to activate the hydraulic release system that separates the HydraWash™ Jetting Tool from the Cement Stinger and the HydraArchimedes™ tool, allowing pumping of the cement.
Once the correct amount of cement is pumped, rotate the HydraArchimedes™ in the wet cement and work pipe slowly upwards to ensure full coverage of the section to be plugged. The HydraWell Cement Stinger and HydraArchimedes™ tool will then be pulled above TOC and the P&A plug tested according to the Operator procedure prior to POOH.
