Aberdeen-based Deep Casing Tools has expanded into the Kazakhstan market with its reaming and drill-able turbine technology.
Its expansion into Kazakhstan has been supported by Oil Tools Services, a Kazakh company based in Aktobe city.
The company’s 7” Turbocaser Express™ high-speed reaming system was deployed recently in the Chinarevskoye field where the client had experienced previous casing running issues.
The casing reached total depth on first attempt and, following a typical cement program, the Turbocaser Express™ was successfully drilled out with a polycrystalline diamond compact bit on a rotary steerable assembly, and next section drilled in one run.
Alan Phillips, Vice President Sales, Deep Casing Tools, said: “Our entry into Kazakhstan is great news for both Deep Casing Tools and Oil Tools Services and is in line with our global expansion strategy.
“Despite the downturn we are well placed to succeed in this market as our technology saves clients flat time and reduces overall well costs. 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.
“We are looking to further expansion in Kazakhstan and neighboring territories.”
Additional business expansion for Deep Casing Tools includes a record order book in Russia and a first Turbocaser Express™ deployment offshore Netherlands, while total global sales for Deep Casing Tools products stands at more than 330.
