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...
Isolate a lower pressured oil production zone from other nearby higher pressured zones to mitigate cross-flow between the different reservoirs.
Larger SET® Systems were designed to mitigate the risks inherent in drilling complex and exploratory wells.
Larger solid expandable systems are planned as a basis-of-design (BOD) in the upper portion of the wellbore. This enables operators to maintain internal diameter (ID) early in the...
