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

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...

The customer was sidetracking the well, and unable to run their 16-inch liner. The 13-5/8 inch and 11-3/4 inch casing were both set high, which would compromise the originally planned 8-1/2 inch hole size.

 

The operator selected a 9-5/8 x 11-3/4 in. SET®...

An operator needed to overcome drilling obstacles in their Gulf of Mexico, HPHT well.

Three SET® Systems were installed in this well and enabled the operator to reach the planned target. 

03/03/2005

Preserve hole size by implementing a contingency plan that included two SET® solid expandable liners and one conventional API liner run below the well’s planned 11-7/8 in. drilling liner.

While drilling an exploration well, an Operator encountered a narrow pore pressure/fracture gradient window that required using more casing strings than planned.

Operators encountered trouble zones, which escalated non-productive time (NPT) in an offshore shelf. By using Solid Expandables they were able to reduce the NPT, isolate the zones, achieve a 130% increase in the flow area, and realize a 50% increase in inside diameter (ID) at total depth (TD)....
