S elective L ateral O rientation P rofile for E xits A method of providing a pre-determined permanent datum point, integral to the casing or liner string, for positive depth location and orientation for creating casing exits and future lateral re-entries Complexity Completion Flexibility 2 2

Cost effective solution Simple installation on casing or liner string Standard cementing procedures observed No need for orientation of the casing string unlike a pre-milled window system Positive re-entry to each lateral Use at anytime in the life of the well Full burst and collapse rating of the casing Full bore access through entire casing string Allows normal drilling Completions & Remedial

Need a casing exit for an ML junction Most common application as a Level 2 Need multiple laterals from one common wellbore Minimize trips for creating casing exits Permanent alignment datum point required (Drilling, Completions, Remedial, etc.) Vertical exploration prior to drilling horizontal When intervention will be required either by coil or joint tubular When step out exploration will occur at a later date

A pump through Straddle Wiper Plug is preinstalled in each SLOPE Nipple to isolate the locating/orienting profiles during cementing operations. The SLOPE System

8 © Baker Hughes Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. | 8| 8 SLOPE Selective Collet System - Operation The casing string does not require orientation prior to cementing. Conventional cementing procedures are used. A SLOPE Casing Wiper Plug is launched from a standard casing cementing manifold, following the cement. The SLOPE Casing Wiper Plug latches into and shears the Slope Straddle Plug. The Stacked SLOPE Casing Wiper Plug latches the next Slope Straddle Plug and shears the plug to continue down hole. The SLOPE plug system latches into a landing collar.

While landed, rotation of the work string aligns the locators orientation key in the SLOPE Nipple. Azimuth is measured by either the MWD or gyro method. The SLOPE Nipple now provides a permanent datum point in the well bore. The orientation BHA is retrieved.

All Rights Reserved. | 12 Debris Management System - Components Excluder Sub Excluder cup is manufactured a high quality Nitrile Polymer that is permanently bonded to a steel support Excluder cup has radial slits so that fluid can pass through the cup during run in of the BHA Unloader Sub Unloader bypass prevents swabbing of the well with the excluder rubber while pulling out of the hole Unloads Pressure from Either Direction The Unloading Sub unloads pressure differential either from the annulus to the tubing or from the tubing to the annulus. Stroke of tool provides indication whipstock is free should the anchoring system fail to release Shear Sub Allows retrieval of whipstock, should the primary release method fail, ensuring whipstock recovery even in worst case scenario The joint is rotational locked to withstand high torque loads Adjustable shear value allows same tool to be dressed for different well conditions Standard fishing neck is left looking upward once sheared

The whipstock BHA is run and landed in the SLOPE Nipple. Once landed, right-hand rotation of the work string latches the locator sub orientation key in the SLOPE Nipple aligning the whipstock face to the correct azimuth.

20 © Baker Hughes Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. | 20 Case History 2: Level 2 – On Shore - Canada Project Overview Vertical wells in this area have traditionally been strong candidates for reentries. The lowest zone produces vigorously for one/three years. As the reservoirs pressure drops the upper horizontal zones can be drilled and added to the production. There are three additional zones of interest. A decision will be made later (one to three years) whether one or more of the upper reservoirs will be added. The operator selected the Baker SLOPE system as the only economical solution. The SLOPE was included in the final casing string for future sidetracks. It provided a base to create one or more level two junctions. The greatest advantage to the SLOPE system is there is no ID restriction that limits your options. There are no safety issues with compromising the casing integrity with pre-milled windows. The SLOPE has the same burst and collapse ratings of the casing that it is installed in. The mainbore casing was cemented into place and the lowest zone was perforated. The Baker Hornet Packer was run through the SLOPE nipple and set with 2-7/8 tubing was tied into the surface. The well was ready for production. The Baker SLOPE will provide the base for future development of the well. This marks the first time a company has had the forethought to install multilateral equipment that will be utilized years down the road. It reduces the cost and increases the flexibility of the well and creates a more effective design.

Implementation of a Baker Hughes Solution. A field proven solution to replace level one junctions as well as a strong foundation for level 2 junctions.

23 © Baker Hughes Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. | 23 Case History 3: Level 2 – On Shore - Kazakhstan Project Overview The operator was looking for incremental production increases from a singular reservoir located at meters (17,500 ft). The options available were: drill three separate wells, or a multilateral solution. The economics quickly showed that a multilateral solution was the best answer. The operator decided that the Baker SLOPE system was the best system for their wells. The SLOPE system is a low risk highly versatile multilateral system. The SLOPE nipple becomes an integral part of the A 7 liner. The inclusion of 2 Baker SLOPE nipples in the liner installation provides the foundation for a Tri-lateral level 2 wellbore. The Baker SLOPE nipple permits all normal practices to be utilized when running and cementing the liner into place. These 2 SLOPE nipples are now a permanent reference point in the wellbore. This permits all operations to occur with out an ID restriction. Each leg was drilled horizontally for approximately 600 meters resulting in crows foot profile in the reservoir. The SLOPE nipples and the casing exits were accomplished at +80° of inclination. By commingling all three legs, the completion is simplified. At any time, the SLOPE nipples can be reused to reenter the designated legs, or act as a base for additional laterals to be installed. The versatility, track record and ease of installation of the Baker SLOPE system leaves no doubt that it is the solution for level 2 junctions at any depth.
