Deep Casing Tools, the Aberdeen-based casing and completion technology specialist, has secured a major order in Saudi Arabia following the introduction of its innovative high-speed drillable reaming system, the Turbocaser Express.
Successful runs in the Kingdom’s Eastern Province resulted in landing casing and liners on depth with both 7” and 9 5/8” Turbocaser Express tools and have led a major national oil company to commit to applying the technology in some of its more difficult well environments.
Landing casing and liners in mature fields, with highly deviated wells, altered pressure regimes and frequently unstable formations, can be very challenging, leading to multiple sidetracks and casings set off-depth. The economic impact can be serious, with expenditure overruns and delayed production. The Turbocaser Express is an enabling technology for all wells, to ensure casing is set at the planned depth, a fundamental building block of improved well integrity. The Turbocaser Express has particular application where hole conditions can deteriorate with time and where wiper trips can be eliminated.
