11/09/2006

Install a high-collapse SET® expandable liner to case off the trouble zone.

10/15/2008

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

01/03/2009

Install a 7-5/8 x 9-5/8 in. SET Openhole Liner (OHL) to isolate higher pressure zones so that mud weight could be reduced to combat lost circulation.

Expandable-tubular technology involves a process that expands casing in oil wells drilled in especially challenging environments, such as deepwater. Until now, operators have had to use progressively smallerdiameter pipe as a well was drilled deeper; but expandable-tubular goods are designed for...

Optimizing the casing program is one of the most critical factors in well design for deepwater applications. Conventional design often dictates that very large surface casing be used to allow passage of a high number of subsequent casing strings telescoping down in size that are required to...

Establishing and maintaining hydraulic integrity between liner hangers and the base casing in which they are set has long been one of the most problematic areas facing operators. With failure rates on pressure seals in overlaps now exceeding 40% in some regions, the need for a solution to this...

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...
