An Advanced Open Hole Sidetrack Application Saves 800 ft of Drilled Interval in a Middle East Well
A TrackMaster* OH system was successfully deployed across another previously set whipstock and through several washout areas to complete an unplanned sidetrack objective.
- The 8 3/8 in. open hole sidetrack was completed in one trip and saved 800 ft of previously drilled interval.
- The sidetrack was completed in a total of 6 hours.
- The used bi-mill was within the acceptable gauge diameter as per criteria after the run, assuring a high-quality sidetrack.
- The subsequent directional RSS BHA passed freely through the window to continue drilling and meet the customers’ objectives.
