THE WORLD’S ONLY SINGLE-TRIP OPENHOLE CEMENTING AND SIDETRACK SYSTEM
Unleash your capabilities
We develop technologies that others don't so our customers can do what others can't. For more than four decades we have led the industry's re-entry market. We combined our legacy with excellence in engineering to give you an unbeatable single-trip re-entry solution.
The AlphaST™ single-trip openhole cementing and sidetrack system enables you to cement, anchor the whipstock, and mill off formation—without the need to set cement plugs or wait on cement to cure. The system drives down sidetracking costs, eliminates the need for multiple trips in hole, and avoids costly cementing operations for a variety of applications.
Cement, anchor, and drill off in one run
We engineered the AlphaST system for efficiency. The system enables you to set the whipstock, convey cement if necessary, and drill off in one run without waiting for cement to cure. By using our IPP® inflatable production packer to anchor the whipstock in the open hole, you can begin drilling off before the cement sets. A lead mill and flex mill initiate the kickoff and facilitate a quick departure from the original wellbore.
IN A SINGLE TRIP
Drill past a fish or around a collapsed borehole, straighten crooked holes, or bypass cement plugs. A slim, reinforced inflatable packer enables you to work past borehole restrictions and reach your kickoff point.
A rugged, reinforced packer with a full 360° of contact exerts great holding force across a wide range of hole sizes and conditions. This field-proven packer gives you more control over the kickoff point. The result is unmatched reliability.
Kick off as soon as you set the packer. Two mills on the bottomhole assembly (BHA) facilitate a quick departure from the old wellbore—and the single-angle whipstock concave sets up a smooth transition into the sidetrack.
