By ensuring optimal hole size, well designs using solid expandable tubulars have a far-reaching effect on drilling, evaluation, completion and life-of-well solutions. Enventure Global Technology's Kevin Waddell, Jerry Fritsch and Kristaq Mitrushi discuss the growing influence of solid...
Leverage information gained from the first well in the development project and install Solid Expandable Tubular (SET®) systems to the subsequent wells to save casing points and preserve hole size while drilling through shale formations and depleted zones.
Isolate a low fracture-gradient zone to enable an optimal completion.
Offshore Denmark, Directional Well, 8 5/8 x 10 3/4
A Norwegian Sea Operator was unable to drill into a depleted reservoir with a planned 12-1/4 in. BHA, which left a short section of shale cap rock that needed to be isolated to enable use of water-based mud as the reservoir drill fluid.
The ESeal Flex expandable system is an expandable solution primarily designed for well completions, stimulations, and workovers.
The ESeal Patch is a single-joint, solid steel, expandable casing patch for operators who need a permanent, inexpensive casing patch solution that reliably restores well integrity.
In cased-hole environments, ESeal Liner systems provide a solution to mitigate troubled casing intervals in onshore and offshore applications.
ESeal™ HP Patch systems: A high-performance wellbore repair solution.
These systems utilize a higher yield-strength material than standard ESeal systems. The material’s increased burst and collapse ratings provide enhanced performance and reliability.
From re-completions to field...
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.
