Challenge: Design and implement a field-level remediation plan using cased-hole SET® Solid Expandable Tubular technology to facilitate production restoration.
Get back on planned drilling program and finish the well with an adequate hole size to evaluate potential production zones at TD.
Drill through 200 feet of depleted sands, add a casing point and reach the pay target (measured depth between 11,000 to 13,000 feet) with adequate hole size while maintaining the smallest upper wellbore possible.
Accurately install SET® Openhole Clad solid expandable systems featuring water-sensitive swelling elastomer seals. The installation further proved SET® technology applied for the first time a year earlier in another field.
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.
As the oil and gas industry has matured, three broadreaching and long-standing issues that affect virtually every well have assumed heightened importance: conservation of hole size, hydraulic isolation of selected zones, and maximization of well life. All of these issues involve one of the...
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...
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...
- Operator was experiencing trouble formation caused by narrow pore pressure/fracture gradient window which caused casing to be set higher than planned.
- Operator decided that expandables were the way to go.
- All of the customer's operating objectives were met.
