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...

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...

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...
