Deep Casing Tools, the Aberdeen based casing and completion technology specialist, has been awarded a significant repeat order by CNR International to supply Turbocaser Express and Turborunner technology for the Espoir Ivory Coast project. This order follows successful deployments in the North Sea.
The Turbocaser Express tools provide high-speed reaming to land casing at target depth, reducing operational risk and saving time. Landing casing in highly deviated wells and unstable formations can be very challenging, leading to potential budget overruns and delayed production. The tools provide reamer shoe rotation without casing rotation, with a unique internal assembly that offers rapid drill through.
The Turborunner also provides high speed rotational reaming to land completions or liners. This technology operates with very low pressure and protects the completion from vibration, reactive mechanical torque, and uncontrolled pressure spikes. The Turborunner effectively combines a wiper trip with the running of the completion, without any string rotation.
Deep Casing Tools CEO, Lance Davis, said: “This is an important milestone in our growth strategy and it is encouraging to see major operators embracing new technology. We are excited about demonstrating the value the tools deliver to CNR International”.
This work underpins Deep Casing Tools ongoing expansion and follows successes with several operators in the North Sea, Middle East and USA.
