To plug and abandon a typical offshore well, the technology mills through the 9 5/8-in. casing like any other section mill. The difference lies in trips dedicated to the outer string. The Endura dual-string section mill passes through the restricted ID of the 9 5/8-in. casing string to the open section.
Hydraulic stabilizers expand inside the 13 3/8-in. outer casing to centralize the tool. The full-gauge cut-out blades remove approximately 15 ft of casing to prepare for milling. Using advanced cutting technologies that improve swarf-handling and reduce birdnesting, the mills engage and then mill through the remaining section of outer casing.
