One-trip casing exit milling saves time during complex drilling

Performing a casing exit to create a secondary wellbore involves a whipstock assembly to direct the mill toward the side of the existing casing where an exit is then milled. However, today’s wellbore requires advanced drilling assemblies with a range of technologies, including electronics and measuring devices that send data back to the operator. Drilling assemblies have necessarily gotten larger to accommodate these additional tools. The need for effective tools to address the size, length, and stiffness of newer drilling assemblies led Baker Hughes to develop the LongBow casing exit milling system.
