Get back on planned drilling program and finish the well with an adequate hole size to evaluate potential production zones at TD.
Install a high-collapse SET® expandable liner to case off the trouble zone.
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.
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...
The customer was sidetracking the well, and unable to run their 16-inch liner. The 13-5/8 inch and 11-3/4 inch casing were both set high, which would compromise the originally planned 8-1/2 inch hole size.
The operator selected a 9-5/8 x 11-3/4 in. SET®...
In 2009, a global super-major operating out of Borneo experienced problems with a well it was running from a drillship in over 5,000 feet of water off of the Sarawakan coast. An initial exploration well working a straight hole in a shale formation, the operator encountered an unstable...
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.
SET® solid expandable technology enabled the Operator to stay on course with the planned reservoir drilling and completion solution, due to the preservation of hole size.
