Deep Casing Tools Deploys First System in Iraq

20 July 2016

Casing and completion tool specialist Deep Casing Tools has continued its Middle East expansion with a successful deployment of its unique drillable turbine technology in Iraq.

The company’s 7” Turbocaser Express™ high-speed reaming system was deployed recently for a client who had experienced previous liner running issues. The Turbocaser Express™ reamed through multiple problematic areas overcoming reactive shale and limestone stringers. Following a successful cement program, the Turbocaser Express™ was quickly and successfully drilled out with a PDC (polycrystalline diamond compact) bit and the next section was drilled during the same run.

Deep Casing Tools’ technologies provide significant well construction risk reductions. Offering the ability to ream while running in, the Turbocaser Express™ enables the run while the hole is in optimal condition, eliminating wiper trips and open hole exposure time.

John Rider, Vice President for Deep Casing Tools, said: “Our successful Turbocaser Express™ deployment in Iraq is fantastic news and a significant achievement.   Despite the market downturn, Deep Casing Tools continues to expand in existing and new territories.   The value delivered by our innovative products to our clients in the drilling and completions sector is clear.”
