Challenge: Design and implement a field-level remediation plan using cased-hole SET® Solid Expandable Tubular technology to facilitate production restoration.

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...

Implement an ESeal solution that would enable targeted completion with packer seats while also repairing the damaged vertical section of casing in the Barnett.

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.

This casing failure occurred during the 13th stage of the well’s plug-&- perf frac job of it’s 4,500 ft lateral section.  To avoid killing the well with potentially damaging weighted fluids, a rig assist snubbing unit was used to enable live-well operations including milling out the casing...

In the Marcellus Shale, fracturing rates and pressures can be substantial, but there are other problems also associated with completing these wells, which can promote casing failure or compromise the pressureintegrity of a well. A...

A major operator in the Eagle Ford began a well recovery program to re-activate over 30 wells that stopped producing due to compromised well integrity (leaks).

An Operator, in the Ardmore Basin, was unable to put a well onto first production due to casing damage at a 5½” to 4½” casing crossover.
