Conductor whipstocks are essential to the process of platform or subsea well slot recovery by which a new well is drilled and completed directly over the footprint of a previous one that has suffered a fall in productivity.
In circumstances where no fresh well slots are available, the process provides a highly cost-effective way of raising production, reaching new reservoir targets, increasing hydrocarbon recovery and extending field life.
The new conductor is installed and driven through an earlier used slot in the platform well bay or subsea template. Crucially, a whipstock is employed to deflect the replacement pipe down beside the old conductor and thus define the start of the new well path.
