SET® technology was born out of necessity in offshore oil and gas wells. But innovative technology never stays put. Now operators are finding many benefits when applying SET® solid expandable technology into their onshore and offshore drilling programs, which collectively equal reduced costs. Those benefits include:
- Mitigate risk in reaching TD by providing additional casing string options
- Eliminating NPT and reducing the days-to-depth curve
- Accelerating production by helping bring reserves online faster
- Slimmer well profiles which increase ROP and enable the use of smaller rigs and less consumables
Pre-planning expandables into the wellbore design has offered operators an opportunity that helps ensure reaching TD on time and on-budget.
Getting the most value from Expandables
Strategic implementation is the key to gaining the most value from expandable technology application. Field developments that incorporate expandables into the well design have seen substantial savings.
Slimming the wellbore
Incorporating SET® technology into a well's planned architecture offers a slimmer well profile, without compromising planned completion programs.
Increase ID at TD
Design your well to match your reservoir. Integrating SET® technology into the well's architecture enables reaching total depth (TD) with the optimum internal diameter (ID) for the reservoir.
SET® technology mitigates uncertainty often encountered when drilling exploratory wells by preserving hole size while providing additional casing strings.
