New oil field tool tested in Anderson County



“BlackBird is designed to be used in existing wells that still contain heavy oil,” the website stated. “It is sized to fit industry standard 5-inch, 6-inch and 7-inch oil well casings and will accommodate standard turning sweeps for horizontal wells, such as steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD).

BlackBird is placed underground through existing vertical and/or horizontal wells and will connect directly to the tool attachment point on the lower end of most commonly used retrievable packers.

“In short, it is a low cost, low risk method for squeezing yields and earning high margins out of existing reserves,” the site stated.

Advanced Combustion Energy Systems Inc. is a Georgia-based corporation. For more information on the BlackBird Tool, visit
