In 2009, a global super-major operating out of Borneo experienced problems with a well it was running from a drillship in over 5,000 feet of water off of the Sarawakan coast. An initial exploration well working a straight hole in a shale formation, the operator encountered an unstable...

A major operator was sidetracking out of an existing well to a nearby reservoir.The first attempt to sidetrack utilizing a conventional casing design failed to reach the target depth and damaged the 13-3/8 in. casing.

The casing design for a...

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.

Isolate a low fracture-gradient zone to enable an optimal completion.

BP experienced losses while drilling a development well due to weak sand formation directly below the 13-3/8in. shoe. Multiple attempts were made to stem the losses - all without success.
A solution was required to isolate the weak sand formation and enable drilling to continue with higher...
