Challenge: Design and implement a field-level remediation plan using cased-hole SET® Solid Expandable Tubular technology to facilitate production restoration.
Expandable-tubular technology involves a process that expands casing in oil wells drilled in especially challenging environments, such as deepwater. Until now, operators have had to use progressively smallerdiameter pipe as a well was drilled deeper; but expandable-tubular goods are designed for...
Implement an ESeal solution that would enable targeted completion with packer seats while also repairing the damaged vertical section of casing in the Barnett.
Enventure's 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 inch, 17 lb/ft ESeal Liner was installed in a Barnett Shale 3000 ft lateral wellbore to isolate existing perforations while allowing fracturing of new shale colume between old perforation clusters.
An operator's well in the Marcellus Shale developed a split in the horizontal section during the primary cement job. Pressure integrity needed to be restored before the operator could continue completing the well.
As part of a multi-well program, isolate severe water-thief zones in a field where squeezing, casing patches and dual packer isolation assemblies rarely worked. The solution increased production and ultimately resulted in higher reserves.
Results from two case histories in shale plays indicate that the use of an expandable refrac liner gives comparable, or better, gas production than other methods of perforation isolation, and provides assurance
for frac stage injectivity.
A major east coast Operator needed to cover and isolate two sets of perforations in the base casing. An ESeal Liner was chosen because three previous liners were performing successfully in the same area for this Operator. The perforations needed to be sealed so water influx could be stopped to...
