09/03/2007

Mitigate shale formations, in which loss of returns and sticking are common, by combining SET® expandable tubulars with sidetracking operations in order to reach additional reserves with optimized hole size.

Isolate multiple zones while maximizing diameter by installing a SET Open-hole Liner with swellable elastomers. The maximum diameter would help reduce fluid friction during high-rate fracturing operations.

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.

To completely isolate the main pay zone (MPZ) from lower residual oil zone (ROZ) with options to set conventional liner in future if needed for conformance work. Installation of 5-1/2” x 7”, 23 lb ESeal Liners to isolate the upper perforations in each well would enable injection through newly-...

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 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.

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...

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.

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.
