Our Offset mills can go through restrictions in the casing at any point in the wellbore and mill to full ID below. We are now over 100 successful runs to date. Mostly in NE BC, where the Montney formation seems intent on making fracturing and millout operations as difficult as possible, the offset mill has provided major operators the ability to stop sweating. Knowing we can pass easily through casing restrictions to do the job has landed DSI as the Premier provider of milling services in the area. Customers are ecstatic with the results.
Offset Mill – Proven Results
Developed through extensive testing on our test-bench in DSI’s Red Deer facility and in conjunction with field runs with a major Montney operator the offset mill is now a proven technology in thru-tubing milling. When the Offset Eliminator has been run to mill our own Bear Claw Composite Plugs the results have been even more outstanding. Because of the proprietary composite that doesn’t break down under downhole conditions, the tearing of materials that normally cause debris issues is no longer a risk. Debris management is a lot simpler with the Bear Claw plug. The run history now speaks for itself and the word is on the street in Calgary and beyond. Beware composite plugs…we can get you wherever you are!
Mills are a daily topic of conversation at DSI. It is a constantly evolving process to find the best mill for the application.
From the cutting structure of the face material, to the number of blades, degree of pitch to the face, length of the body and shank, it is an engineering marvel to come up with the right combination. We mill composite plugs, ball seat systems, cement, scale and whatever else comes up every day. Not one mill is best suited for the job. That is why we have performed extensive surface testing. And the downhole results speak for themselves. No one puts more energy into mills than DSI.
