Horizontal Self Cocking Jar Provides 55,000lbs Shear Force At 87° Well Deviation.
Our client had used a third party company to run a Wireline set Packer / Tailpipe assembly which they were going to set at a well deviation of 50°. Unfortunately, due to a malfunction with their Cable Head the Packer, Setting Tool and Weight Bars all fell to the heel of the horizontal well.
In an effort to retrieve the lost equipment an Omega High Deviation package was mobilized to the well site as the lost tools had settled at a well deviation of 87°. The equipment utilised included Omega Roller Subs and our highly successful Horizontal Self Cocking Jar (HSCJ) which is capable of providing high jarring forces in high deviation environments.
Once latched onto the lost tool string the HSCJ provided 142 actuations (high impact jarring hits) which eventually resulted in the Setting Tool shearing off the Packer. Subsequent investigations revealed that the shear rating on the Packer pin was approximately 55,000 pounds. Our client was delighted with the performance of the HSCJ and amazed at its ability to deliver enough force to shear a 55,000 Packer Pin at a well deviation of 87°.
The standard variant of the 3.6” Hydrostatic Setting Tool achieved a new milestone recently when it was successfully utilised to deploy a 9-5/8” Permanent Bridge Plug in a 10,300 psi well at a temperature of 70ºC. This is the highest well pressure environment within which the standard 3.6” Hydrostatic Setting Tool has been utilised to date.
Due to unknown well issues an Omega Nitrogen Chamber was used to provide the setting force. The Nitrogen Chamber ensures trouble free tool actuation in challenging environments where factors such as excessive debris may be present.

Omega Completion Technology is proud to announce that the unique ReAct™ Completion Circulation Valve (ReAct™ CCV) has recently passed a full-scale erosion test and thereafter a full ISO 14998 V0 qualification test. The valve is therefore barrier qualified according to the highest industry standards.
The Valve is the newest completion offering from Omega and is a game changer in the industry as it offers a new way to run upper completions with great cost - and time - savings!
The ReAct™ CCV incorporates Omega’s unique ReAct™ technology, which allows a downhole tool to be Remotely Activated without the need for control lines or intervention runs.
By running the ReAct™ CCV above the production packer, the operator can set the production packer, before displacing to lighter fluid. The valve can be remotely opened and closed by sending a pre-determined pressure signal.
Running the ReAct™ CCV gives many benefits for operators, including;
- Avoid the need for running middle completion strings, which drives cost and completion time.
- Allows displacing fluid above the production packer to prevent potential packer damage.
- Eliminate need for running control lines and smart completions.
- Eliminate need for running intervention tools.

The Omega Tubing Protection System was developed in conjunction with a UK Operator as a potential solution to a junked well issue. The well had a stuck tool string at a significant depth and a collection of wire was unretrievable. The operator wanted to produce from the well but was concerned that the broken fragments would flow upwards causing issues in the Upper Completion. Omega's proposed solution was to utilise their existing gauge hanger as an anchoring base for high flowing tubing system which allows high bypass but also has the ability to capture debris.

In conjunction with a major North Sea Operator, Omega has recently started a qualification program for our unique ReAct™ Completion Circulation Valve.
The Valve is specifically designed to be run above the production packer and provides a means to circulate in lighter well fluid prior start of production. The Valve is remotely actuated open and closed without the need for intervention. When the valve is closed, it is designed to be a part of the barrier envelope after completing the ISO 14998 ISO V0 qualification requirements and erosion testing.
Omega continues to expand the successful track record of the Gemini Retrievable Bridge Plug after we recently ran the first Gemini plug for Statoil in Norway. “This is a great milestone for Omega as this shows that Statoil has recognized our superior plug technology after thorough qualification processes” said Fredrik Harestad, General Manager in Omega Norway.
This is an addition to other successful “DMI” (Downhole Mechanical Isolation) products successfully installed in Norway in the same time frame.
Omega machinist Jeff Shand was recently presented with an Omega Seamaster wrist watch in recognition of completing 10 years service with the company. Presenting the award is Omega Managing Director Brian Garden who thanked Jeff for his hard work and dedication.
