The Leak Detection Tool is designed to create a temporary sealing barrier to enable a surface pressure test to ascertain a potential leak path between the tubing and annulus.
Using the field proven SIM Running Tool, the Detection Tool is deployed in the well to a desired depth, predominantly at a depth below a suspected leak path, on a conventional slickline toolstring. Reciprocation at depth allows the radial indexing mechanism to activate, anchoring the Running Tool slips to the tubing wall. To effect the “seal”, light jarring down is required to expand the element of the Leak Detection Tool. Tubing pressure is then applied to test tubing integrity. The cycle can then be repeated and fine tuned until the exact location of a leak is detected.
