History & Milestones

SET® Solid Expandable Technology: Field-proven in thousands of installations in basins all over the world.

Enventure Global Technology, a Shell Technology Ventures portfolio company managed by Kenda Capital B.V., emerged in 1998 just two months after proof-of-concept tests demonstrated the feasibility of expanding pipe used in oil and gas wells. Enventure's proprietary technology for expandable pipe, threaded connections, and installation tools enable oil and gas exploration and production companies to extract the most value from their wells at each stage of the well’s life.

Working with independent and national oil companies to support their drilling, completions and production objectives in more than 2,000 installations around the world, Enventure has achieved a multitude of industry milestones.

The first commercial installation of a SET® System was in 1999 for Chevron, just outside Louisiana state waters in the Gulf of Mexico. Since then, we have provided SET®, ESET™ and ESeal™ solid expandable solutions for more than 350 customers worldwide in a variety of open and cased-hole applications.
