Rapid Mobilization of TrackMaster Select in Mexico Recovers an Ongoing Exploration Well Sidetrack Successfully.
Facing significant challenges in an ongoing sidetracking operation, a customer mobilized the TrackMaster Select* system at short notice to sidetrack 13 3⁄8 inch casing and deliver a successful casing exit.
- Rapid mobilization of equipment and qualified, experienced, local personnel within 24 hours, resulted in the delivery of the casing exit in a single trip.
- Both the window and rat hole were completed in 9.7 hours.
- On the surface, the milling assembly used was found to be within allowable wear tolerances, confirming that the window was of high quality and full gauge.
- Subsequent directional drilling assemblies passed freely through the window, allowing drilling operations to continue.
- The customer recognized the success from WIS to recover this sidetrack operation after incurring significant NPT with an alternative equipment supplier.
