Saving $24M in NPT with Over 50% Increase in ID at TD

Summary:

Operators encountered trouble zones, which escalated non-productive time (NPT) in an offshore shelf. By using Solid Expandables they were able to reduce the NPT, isolate the zones, achieve a 130% increase in the flow area, and realize a 50% increase in inside diameter (ID) at total depth (TD).
