An operator needed to overcome drilling obstacles in their Gulf of Mexico, HPHT well.

Three SET® Systems were installed in this well and enabled the operator to reach the planned target.

A Major Operator drilling an appraisal sidetrack well in the Deepwater Gulf of Mexico needed a solution to to cover and isolate a trouble zone that would enable them to stay on plan and reach well TD with the planned hole size. 

The record-setting SET installation, mitigated the risk of...

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)....
