TruEdge™ Technology in Action. A Unique Challenge in Qatar.

Wellbore Integrity Solutions (WIS) TruEdge* technology from our Red Baron product line demonstrated superior performance in cutting and milling a Corrosion Resistant Alloy (CRA) liner in Qatar.

TruEdge technology enables line recovery and a subsequent successful sidetrack.


An industry-first application for both section milling and cutting the liner

– Cut was completed in less than 7 minutes at 12,221 ft, just above the casing shoe
– The 7-inch liner was retrieved on a separate trip with a spear-fishing BHA
– Access was provided to sidetrack the wellbore at the desired depth and a successful sidetrack concluded
