D&L Oil Tools introduced Trilobite Anchors, a line of hydraulically and mechanically set retrievable tubing anchors. The anchors incorporate three heat-treated steel alloy slips that maximize holding in both tension and compression and use component spacing to allow increased annular flow and capillary tube bypassing. This allows operators to increase space for gas while running capillary lines without compromising tubing size in the desired 5½×2⅞-in. configuration. The anchors, designed in Hydro Anchor and Quarter-Turn Anchor configurations, also serve as catchers, meaning that they do not require upward tension to remain in place. Clients report that the tool has not only increased the capability of running multiple capillary and data lines but also has allowed increased gas production because of the multiplied space for gas to travel upward toward the wellhead.
