Challenge: Design and implement a field-level remediation plan using cased-hole SET® Solid Expandable Tubular technology to facilitate production restoration.

09/03/2007

Mitigate shale formations, in which loss of returns and sticking are common, by combining SET® expandable tubulars with sidetracking operations in order to reach additional reserves with optimized hole size.

05/05/2006

Get back on planned drilling program and finish the well with an adequate hole size to evaluate potential production zones at TD.

03/09/2004

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.

04/19/2008

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.

10/15/2008

Optimize project economics, well design and drilling efficiency with application of SET solid expandable technology.

10/12/2008

Isolate multiple zones while maximizing diameter by installing a SET Open-hole Liner with swellable elastomers. The maximum diameter would help reduce fluid friction during high-rate fracturing operations.

05/16/2004

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.
