High-Performance CT Motor Improves Milling Efficiency by 55%

Eagle Ford operator drills through 21 frac plugs in just 33 hours

Graph: High-Performance CT Motor Improves Milling Efficiency by 55% - Eagle Ford operator drills through 21 frac plugs in just 33 hours

The new motor improved frac plug removal time by 55%, saving the operator 40 hours compared with previous milling operations using 2 7/8-in motors and 2-in CT string. The 3 1/8-in coiled tubing motor, part of the CoilTOOLS tools and solutions portfolio, helped the operator achieve significantly higher milling performance. This included:

  • 75% higher maximum flow rate
  • 209% higher maximum torque
  • 55% faster plug removal time.
