04/21/2004

Regain pressure integrity of the 7-3/4 in. production liner for stacked FracPac™ completion operations using Solid Expandable Tubular (SET™) technology.

09/03/2007

Mitigate shale formations, in which loss of returns and sticking are common, by combining SET® expandable tubulars with sidetracking operations in order to reach additional reserves with optimized hole size.

Optimize project economics, well design and drilling efficiency with application of SET solid expandable technology.

In order to facilitate a lower zone fracture treatment, three sets of perforations required a high-pressure, gas-tight isolation treatment that would maximize casing ID for completion tools. The solution provided a successful, gas-tight isolation of the three sets of perforations...

Isolate multiple zones while maximizing diameter by installing a SET Open-hole Liner with swellable elastomers. The maximum diameter would help reduce fluid friction during high-rate fracturing operations.

09/09/2003

For years, the reduction of tubular inside diameter (ID), or “telescoping effect,” limited the exploration and production of oil and gas. Using conventional technology, operators faced significant loss of ID in the course of the normal drilling process, during reentry and deepening of existing...

Solid expandable tubular technology presents an opportunity to significantly boost the production capacity of wells by increasing the size of the completion. As such, it offers an economically attractive and environmentally friendly option to breathe new life into gas fields. It is flexible in...

During initial completion operations on a deepwater subsea oil well in the Gulf of Mexico, the 7-3/4 in., 46.1 lb/ft casing failed the pressure test in the production liner. Subsequent operations located the casing leak 1,800 ft above the target completion intervals. The original completion was...
