A customer in the Permian basin had performed a plug-and-perf completion and wanted to bring the well online without any delays. The well was deviated, and a total of 72 plugs had been installed at regular intervals at depths ranging from 8,585 ft to 17,903 ft (2,617 m to 6,383 m). Milling out 72 plugs would normally require redressing the mills and replacing the downhole motors. Seeking to avoid multiple trips, the customer contacted Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE), for an efficient and reliable millout solution.
