Get back on planned drilling program and finish the well with an adequate hole size to evaluate potential production zones at TD.
Isolate the trouble zone while conserving hole size by planning solid expandable technology into the well design; optimize wellbore trajectory and reduce risk in sidetrack drilling operations.
Optimize project economics, well design and drilling efficiency with application of SET solid expandable technology.
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.
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.
Enable offshore exploratory well to reach total depth (TD) with optimal hole size after base casing was set higher than expected.
