Hydraulic Whipstock Orientation

It is important to use a highly accurate borehole gyro survey tool or MWD technology to correctly orientate the whipstock face for sidetracking

Using Navibore™ Technology the north seeking GyroTracer™ has completed this job many times with successfully achieved. 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.

Whipstock Orientation sidetracking with hydraulic anchor vs cement plugging

Sidetracking with a whipstock 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.

Its expandable profile tube provides a reliable configuration that can be set at any depth.

Why a Whipstock with hydraulic anchor system?

A hydraulic anchor whipstock system can be used in both open hole and cased wellbores.

This system allows sidetrack without cementing and support for anchor setting, avoiding the common errors found with cement plugging, which include plug failure or degradation.

Eliminating the uncertainty of cement quality, hydraulic anchoring is a much better alternative to traditional methods.

Pathbreaker™ Whipstock hydraulic system can be set in vertical, directional, horizontal and ERD Wells.
