Downhole Electric Cutting Tool
The Downhole Electric Cutting Tool (DECT) from Baker Hughes safely severs pipe without using dangerous chemicals or explosives leaving a machine-shop-quality finish. The DECT meets industry demands for reliable, high-precision cutting operations. The depth of penetration can be accurately controlled, which prevents damage to external casing strings and supports the use of packer retrieval operations. The remaining pipe can easily be fished using standard techniques that require no subsequent clean-up operations. In addition, it can be transported by helicopter because it contains no hazardous materials.
