    Single Trip Casing Cutting & Retrieval System 9-5/8”, 13 3/8”, 20” and 30” casings

    The Frontier International Single-Trip Casing Cutting System was designed to speed up and simplify the mechanical abandonment operation. It removes the need for the old fashioned marine swivel and the heavy, rigid and hard to handle drill collar string. The system speeds up the handling of the cutting string as only one stand of 8" drill collars need to be run above the cutting assembly.

    The Frontier International pipe cutters range in size from 3 5/8” OD to 16” OD and will cut 4 ½” to 36” casing. The pipe cutter works on the principle of pressure drop across an orifice, which in turn forces the cutting blades into the open position. The tool is equipped with a piston position indicator which enables the operator to be positive that a cut has been achieved.

    OD-Mounted Pipe Cutting and Beveling Machine

    The series machine is ideal for all types of pipe cutting, beveling and end preparation. The split frame design allows the machine to split in half at the frame and mount around the OD of the in-line pipe or fittings for strong, stable clamping. The equipment performs precision in-line cut or simultaneous cut/bevel, single cut/bevel, single point, counterbore and flange facing operations, as well as weld end preparation on open ended pipe ranging from 3/4 to 56 inches O.D. (DN20-1400), on most wall thicknesses and material.

  • Milling

    Junk Mills

    Frontier International offers a full line of standardised bladed junk mills designed to mill any type of junk or debris from the wellbore. These “workhorses” of downhole milling operations can be dressed either with custom cut tungsten carbide inserts for stationary fish or junk, or with crushed tungsten carbide for loose fish or junk. Large circulation ports and watercourses improve fluids circulation for cooling and facilitate cuttings removal. Bladed junk mills can be ordered for any length and OD to meet the specific requirements of the job.

    Pilot Mills

    The Frontier International Custom Cut Diamond Point Pilot Mill can be used to mill a full range of tubular products. The mill consists of a leading stabiliser (the pilot), which is sized for the ID of the tubular, and a major diameter section sized at least 1/4" larger than the coupling OD. The Custom Cut Diamond Point Mill can be dressed with crushed carbide or with one of the family of Custom Cut inserts, as appropriate for the application.

    String Mills

    The Frontier International String Mills are excellent for milling out collapsed areas in casing and liners, eliminating key seats and doglegs, and extending whipstock windows. Multiple String Mills can be run throughout the drillstring. Slightly spiraled blades, dressed with crushed tungsten carbide, are held to close OD tolerances for maximum opening in the casing or key seat. The blades are tapered top to bottom to allow upward and downward reaming.

    Taper Mills

    The Frontier International Taper Mills are used to mill out restrictions in collapsed casing and liner sections, mill through jagged or split guide shoes, enlarge restrictions through retainers and adapters, and de-burr whipstock windows. The lower taper section guides the mill into the collapsed section. Then the straight or slightly spiraled blades, dressed with crushed tungsten carbide, mill away the undersized section to full taper mill diameter. The full-bore ID improves fluids circulation for cooling and facilitates cuttings removal.

  • Drilling & Fishing Jars

    Drill Safer. Prevent Lost in Hole.

    UNIVERSAL IMPACT TOOL

    Our jar is designed to free a drilling tool stuck in a hole by jarring against the stuck point.

    Our drilling jar is a double acting hydraulic jar designed for use during drilling operations to apply an intensified force against a stuck portion of the drill string by jarring either up or down.

    Our fishing jar is a hydraulic jar designed to free a stuck portion of the drill string by applying an impact force during fishing operations by jarring up and delivering upward impact force with a higher frequency than a drilling jar due to a faster recharge.

    Our double acting hydraulic drilling jars and hydraulic fishing jars have a set of featured standardized assembly components that allow for the assembly of either of the models while manufacturing.

    Features

    • Simple, robust and dual-use design
    • One set of spare parts and accessories
