Two challenges facing operators as the energy industry moves into the next century are accessing of new reservoirs that currently cannot be reached economically and maintaining profitable production from older fields. Recent advances in one of the oldest and most fundamental areas of exploration...

Expandable-tubular technology involves a process that expands casing in oil wells drilled in especially challenging environments, such as deepwater. Until now, operators have had to use progressively smallerdiameter pipe as a well was drilled deeper; but expandable-tubular goods are designed for...

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...

SET technology is the result of a cold-working process that permanently deforms the pipe without any additional heat. The procedure inherent to expanding tubulars takes the steel beyond its elastic limit into the plastic region of the stress-strain curve, while remaining safely below ultimate...
