Casing Exits

Increase profit by accessing previously uneconomic reserves and bypassing trouble

Our fast, efficient, reliable, and versatile casing exit systems enable one-trip, full-gauge window cutting in a wide range of formations and hole conditions. Good casing exits are crucial to reaching previously uneconomical reserves and bypassing trouble.

Our casing exit technology—anchors, window mills, retrieving tools, section mills, underreamers, whipstocks, and accessory tools—and global experience have proven to be successful in thousands of wells.

We can deliver a high-quality casing exit from any kind of steel. Full-gauge windows give you more completion options. Regardless of your requirements for a casing exit—to solve problems or get faster access to new reserves—get it done faster, more efficiently, and with minimum risk.

These systems leverage some of our proven, high-performance technology, such as mills that use technology from METAL MUNCHER™ fishing tools and Genesis™ PDC bits.
