It is important to use a highly accurate borehole gyro survey tool to correctly orientate the whipstock face for sidetracking
Sidetracking with a whipstock in both cased and open hole wellbores is normally used for the following applications:
- To drill new boreholes in attempt of finding more productive areas
- Increasing wellbore zone reach by drilling lateral wells
- Bypassing obstructions in existing wellbores
To maximize a projects efficiency we recommend using a hydraulic anchor whipstock instead of cementing. When needing to deviate from the initial wellbore path, the hydraulic anchor system introduces a much quicker approach that shows better results.
