C&J Energy Services is an industry-leading provider of perforating, pipe recovery, fishing and wireline logging services, with operations and facilities in all major oil-and-gas producing regions of the continental U.S.

For our West Coast customers, we provide casedhole wireline services through our California-based subsidiary, Tiger Wireline. Specializing in pipe recovery, Tiger Wireline also provides perforating, tubing-conveyed perforating and logging services.

With the C&J rotary ball dispenser (RBD) system, there’s no need to hoist personnel in a lift above high-pressure wellhead equipment every time you need to drop a frac ball. Attached to a RigLock® wellhead connection, the RBD delivers precise ball drops – which field personnel can deploy while stationed up to 150 ft away from the wellhead.

C&J provides premium perforating services for wireline and tubing-conveyed applications. Our systems can be run in conjunction with a drilling rig, pulling rig, snubbing unit or coiled-tubing unit. We regularly perform jobs that combine multiple guns, shot sequentially, using percussion-activated switches. We also offer RF-safe addressable switches designed, in-house by our world-class Research & Technology Center. Every perforating project is precisely tailored to operator specifications and the unique parameters of the completion strategy, using the industry’s highest-quality perforating hardware and charges.

We design and manufacture frac plugs that are trusted to deliver low-cost, high-performance reliability in vertical, deviated and horizontal wells. Their high-strength composite bodies can be drilled out efficiently, using coil or stick pipe, to enable full wellbore flow.

The unparalleled engineering of our Tru-Mill composite frac plug delivers low cost, high performance and exceptional reliability.

Pipe Recovery

With a comprehensive range of pipe-recovery services, we are particularly adept at pipe recovery in deep and highly deviated wells. Our services include:

  • Acoustic stuck-pipe log
  • Free-point services
  • Fish-finder log
  • Backoff string shots

Wireline Logging

C&J field personnel are extensively trained to deploy and operate the industry’s most sophisticated, highest-quality downhole- and surface-acquisition equipment. We deliver comprehensive, industry-standard casedhole logging services – from collar logs to radial cement-bond logs. The wireline systems we deploy enable us to quickly provide highly accurate reports, formatted to your exact specifications. Every log is meticulously annotated – so you always have a clear reference going forward. Data can be displayed in various formats and can be readily transferred to paper logs. In addition, our purpose-built fleet of wireline trucks features a new, open-back design that improves visibility, efficiency and safety.

Wireline Logging Components & Capabilities

  • Radial cement-bond log tools (1-11/16 to 4-1/2 in. sizes)
  • Electromagnetic thickness and multifinger (24-60) caliper tools with 3D-visualization software
  • Compensated and single-detector neutron tools
  • Combinable logging services to reduce well runs
  • Production logging tools (flowmeter, gradiometer, dielectric, pressure, temperature)
  • Noise/temperature logging tools
  • Secure portal system to deliver customer data

Due to violent volcanic eruptions, several geothermal wells in Hawaii were in danger of becoming compromised and releasing deadly gases. The operator called on C&J Energy Services to provide critical guidance and expertise to safeguard the wells. You can trust us to deliver the same uncompromising level of safety and quality on every onshore oilfield job across the continental U.S.
