Deep Casing Tools has expanded its business with successful first deployment of a Turbocaser Express in Kazakhstan.
Deep Casing Tools’ reaming and unique drillable turbine technology provides significant time and cost savings when compared to conventional methods. With the ability to ream while running in, the casing can be run sooner while the hole is in best condition, eliminating wiper trips and open hole exposure time.
Deep Casing Tools was supported by Oil Tools Services, a Kazakh company who are based in Aktobe city and have an wide established client base. Oil Tools Services performed market research and identified several applications where clients have suffered significant non-productive time running tubulars attributed to wellbore instability.
The 7” Turbocaser Express™ was deployed in the Chinarevskoye field where the client had experienced previous casing running issues. The casing reached TD on first attempt and following a typical cement program the Turbocaser Express™ was successfully drilled out with a PDC bit on rotary steerable assembly and next section drilled in one run.
Alan Phillips, VP Sales of Deep Casing Tools, said: “This is great news for both Deep Casing Tools and Oiltools Services and is in line with our our global expansion strategy. Despite the downturn we are well placed as our technology saves clients flat time and reduces overall well costs. We look forward to further expansion into Kazakhstan and neighboring territories”
Oiltools Services Management said: “We are proud to be part of this success alongside Deep Casing Tools . This is the first round of benchmark testing for running production casing with the Turbocaser Express™ versus conventional casing running methods. A professional commitment from the team led to the client’s success by generating value through the application of innovative products and service”
Additional business expansion includes a record order book in Russia and a first Turbocaser Express deployment offshore Netherlands.
