Install larger, corrosion-resistant production conduit.
Install a high-collapse SET® expandable liner to case off the trouble zone.
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.
Install a SET® Openhole solid expandable system fitted with injection-moulded composite standoff blades.
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...
By ensuring optimal hole size, well designs using solid expandable tubulars have a far-reaching effect on drilling, evaluation, completion and life-of-well solutions. Enventure Global Technology's Kevin Waddell, Jerry Fritsch and Kristaq Mitrushi discuss the growing influence of solid...
Leverage information gained from the first well in the development project and install Solid Expandable Tubular (SET®) systems to the subsequent wells to save casing points and preserve hole size while drilling through shale formations and depleted zones.
Isolate a low fracture-gradient zone to enable an optimal completion.
