free-point indicator

1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]

A wireline tool used to determine the free point on a stuck string. The free-point indicator operates by detecting stretch in the tubular when tension is applied at surface. If stretch is not detected, the string must be stuck above the tool; if stretch is detected, the string is free above the free-point indicator tool.

See: free point
