February 12, 2013 | by JK Admin

An independent oil and gas company operating in the Williston Basin needed to remove 40 frac seats from a multistage ball drop system. The frac sleeves started in a horizontal 4-1/2” liner at 8,885 ft (2708 m) and continued to a total measured depth of 18,075 ft (5509 m). A 2-78” BHA incorporating a HydroPull™ tool, Baker mud motor and 3-3/4” Baker Hughes Glyphalloy™ mill was used for this job. A total of 40 frac seats were milled in one trip with a total milling time of 10 hours.
