Series 1200 – Auto Release Tool

The Thru Tubing Systems Auto Release Tool is designed for use with wireline deployed explosive or propellant tools. It is installed as an integral component in the tool string between the CCL and the firing sub attached to the top of the tool body. The purpose of the tool is to guarantee separation of the expended or used downhole tool from the basic wireline BHA (cablehead, sinker bars, CCL) used to deploy the downhole tool.

An operator may wish to jettison a downhole tool for a variety of reasons although it is primarily due to a possible change in tool OD or shape that would make retrieval to the surface risky. This would be the case with perforating guns, jet cutters, etc. The Auto Release Tool separates at the time of downhole tool function. It utilizes pressure from the tool activation and/or subsequent BHP flooding into the tool after activation. The tool operation is passive from the operator’s point of view, no subsequent firing of secondary detonators or additional surface operations must be performed for the expended tool to be released.

Special features incorporated into the design of the Auto Release Tool eliminate possible problems that have been encountered when utilizing other commercially available release tools. Some available tools require the lower half of the tool string to be stuck and the top side to be pulled using the wireline unit to cause the components to separate. One unique feature of the Auto Release Tool is the positive separation of the Wireline BHA from the expended tool. This is accomplished by an internal shifting piston applying opposing force between the two halves and causes separation without assistance from the wireline unit. The Auto Release Tool was actually designed to function when deployed in a horizontal section of a well.

Another feature of the Auto Release Tool’s design is the distribution of weight and applied forces on the tool components. The weight of the downhole tool string is distributed to a series of steel balls or of keys located in an internal profile. This eliminates the possibility of an accidental release during primary tool actuation, by the forces exerted on the severing tension bolt used to suspend the downhole tool on other commercially available tool releases.

The Auto Release Tool is capable of carrying a total tool load of up to 10,000# and will operate at BHP of 15,000 psi. The BHT is only limited by the explosives and seals selected. The upper portion of the Auto Release Tool returned to the surface is easily re-dressed for re-use.
