• The shortest and most compact electro-mechanical setting tool of its kind
  • Does not require explosives, well pressure, pre-pressurisation or nitrogen chambers
  • Deployed via slickline or e-line, activated by a pre-programmed timer or wireless command
  • Setting power vs time logged to confirm downhole setting and tool status



The patented Barracuda™ Electro-SET™ is a battery-powered electro-mechanical setting tool used to install the Barracuda product line, which includes the HEX-Hanger™, a high expansion gauge hanger, and the HEX-Retainer™, a high expansion basket retainer, and other new-generation equipment under development for well testing. The slim-line tool can be deployed by slickline, digital slickline or e-line in any tubing size—including 2-3/8”.

The Electro-SET is the shortest and most compact setting tool of its kind and has been designed for restricted height and restricted tubing ID deployments. The technology does not require explosives, well pressure, pre-pressurisation or nitrogen chambers, which increase installation complexity. The tool can run multiple times without servicing, enabling a quick turnaround between runs. For extended operations, the modular design enables the tool to be serviced at wellsite by trained personnel.

The Electro-SET’s pre-programmed onboard timer activates the electro-mechanical drive mechanism downhole, enabling faster installation and reducing well intervention time and cost. Once set, the tool can be retrieved to surface, where the onboard setting log will confirm the positive tool set. The SonicSync™ Command+Control Platform has been integrated with the tool for wireless set/unset and open/close capability.


  • The Electro-SET-HEX-Hanger toolstring is run-in-hole via slickline to depth
  • An onboard timer activates the Electro-SET, expanding the HEX-Hanger grippers onto the tubing/casing wall via a soft-set pre-compression mechanism which provides high force distribution and engagement
  • The Electro-SET is disengaged from the installed HEX-Hanger via a shear-pin mechanism
  • The Electro-SET is then pulled-out-of-hole and the onboard setting log is downloaded to confirm successful installation
