The WWT FlexShoe TM (FLX) is a guide shoe that can flex around dog-legs, past ledges, and over soft formations to help casing reach bottom under a variety of difficult conditions. The patented design provides a strong, durable guide shoe that can reduce loads at the bottom of the casing by 80%.
- Use the FlexShoe to help guide large diameter casing through trouble zones or through build sections with inclinations above 40 degrees.
- Use with any size casing when running through severe dog-legs.
- Use on ERD or horizontal wells to prevent buckling or hanging up casing in the build and lateral sections to increase run efficiency.
- Use the FlexShoe with any one of WWT’s other guide shoes to effectively run casing in almost any wellbore condition.
