SET® Isolates Losses and Enables Planned Completion

Summary:

An Operator drilling a well in the Permian Basin needed a solution to isolate losses below their intermediate 9-5/8 in. casing string that was causing them to lose mud at a rate of 60 Bbls/hr., and achieve the required mud weight to drill the curve/lateral section of the well. After setting their intermediate casing to cover unexpected water flow, they were left vulnerable to the loss circulation zone below, requiring an additional casing point across the loss zone.
