Less than one day was required for Drilling Innovation’s experts to pick up, run in the hole, orientate, land BS-146 whipstock, cut a window in production casing with drilling a rat hole.

On February 6th, 2013 the technologists cut the window in casing on well no. 5848 Pionerskoe area, Romashkino field. The window was cut in 5-3/4” production casing with application of original whipstock with hydraulic anchor for one trip. Due to rightly selected BHA and high quality of equipment (mill ndergauge was 0.004 in. ) was provided free passing of the bit for sidetracking.

From 2013 Drilling Innovation will supply and provide services with whipstocks under his own trade name - Klen (KLEN). Klen from Russian is translated as maple. Maple is very strong and hardy plant that grows in Russia and in many countries. Our ancestors have made the wedges for wedging, wooden tools, and more other items from maple. KLEN in English sounds as wedge and for the Russian becomes immediately clear what was going on.

On December 30th , 2012 our engineers provided whipstock services at well # 5871, Romashkino field. BS – 146 hydraulic type whipstock was landed at 4176 ft depth.

This work was a challenge for a group of our new engineers. The exam was passed with honor. It took less than one day for Drilling Innovation’s experts to pick-up, run, set the whipstock and cut the window in production casing with next drilling a rat hole.

On December 6th -9th, 2012 our specialists cut the window with application of BS-178 whipstock. This job was the real test for us and our equipment. The matter is that the job was conducted by our new technologist and the window was cut through two casings.
