Bleed Off / Purge Sub

Used on the top joint of the lubricator, this two-in-one tool acts as a Nitrogen sub to pressurize and choke off any harmful gasses from escaping the lubricator, which prevents fires and explosive chemicals reactions. This surface tool can also be attached to the bottom of the lubricator to prevent gasses from traveling to the tank and vessel.

Lifting Cap

This piece of surface equipment is used to secure the wellhead and gauge pressure overnight. The lifting cap can also be used to lift other piece of surface equipment, such as wireline valves, flow tees and bleed off subs, on to the wellhead. It can also be used to lift other tools and equipment that aren’t easily accessible.

3 Inch Wireline Valve

When the wireline is still connected to tools in the wellbore, the wireline valve from Western Pressure Control is used to equalize pressure to the lubricator. This allows you to slowly restrict gasses from the lubricator without releasing gasses into the atmosphere. Our wireline valve comes in a blue Teflon coating as well as a nickel coating which is available upon request.

What Is a Perforator?

In oil and natural gas extraction, a perforator is a mechanical tool that creates a hole in the casing of a well to connect it to the reservoir. This hole punched through the tubing wall allows fluid and gases to pass through at a high rate, thus making the extraction process faster and more efficient. Enabling connection between the tubing and annulus without the use of explosives, this tool is very effective and has an astonishing track record of success in the field.

The benefit of this strategy rather than using explosives is that it gives you greater control of the oil well. Using a perforator allows you to complete the well without worrying about reservoir fluids, and allows you to precisely choose the location of the formation production and seal perforations through cementation.

The W lock downward movement is prevented by a mechanism on the lock body, while the The Z lock downward movement is prevented by a locking mechanism on the equalizing assembly. This devices come in a standard size of 2.5 inches, and come with keys to unlock the devices.


D Locks

Another popular style of locking mandrel is the Otis-style D lock. The D lock is placed and locked into an API tubing collar to retain a pressure differential from above and below.
