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...

A major Alaskan Operator’s 22-year-old well had decreased production levels, had casing integrity issues, and was now producing too much water. An economical yet effective solution was needed that would not only permanently isolate the water-producing perforations in the production liner but...

In openhole environments, SET® Systems provide a variety of solutions including mitigating risk, adding casing strings, and isolating trouble formations while retaining maximum internal diameter.

SET technology is the result of a cold-working process that permanently deforms the pipe without any additional heat. The procedure inherent to expanding tubulars takes the steel beyond its elastic limit into the plastic region of the stress-strain curve, while remaining safely below ultimate...

Larger SET® Systems were designed to mitigate the risks inherent in drilling complex and exploratory wells.

Larger solid expandable systems are planned as a basis-of-design (BOD) in the upper portion of the wellbore. This enables operators to maintain internal diameter (ID) early in the...
