BP experienced losses while drilling a development well due to weak sand formation directly below the 13-3/8in. shoe. Multiple attempts were made to stem the losses - all without success.
A solution was required to isolate the weak sand formation and enable drilling to continue with higher...

The ESeal Liner provided the maximum flow area for injector fluids resulting in greater injection volumes and rates due to less friction pressure loss during injection.  The standard conventional scab liner is the 5 in. liner which provides a 4.481 in. ID., while the 5½ x 7 in. ESeal liner...

An Operator planned to maximize production in a 30+-year-old well by directionally deepening the well to intersect an undeveloped reservoir.  After the high-pressure formation was drilled, a 5-1/2 in. SET Openhole Liner (OHL) successfully isolated the formation while maintaining maximum wellbore...
