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.
The customer was sidetracking the well, and unable to run their 16-inch liner. The 13-5/8 inch and 11-3/4 inch casing were both set high, which would compromise the originally planned 8-1/2 inch hole size.
The operator selected a 9-5/8 x 11-3/4 in. SET®...
An major operator received one of the first post-Macondo permits to continue drilling an exploratory well in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico using subsea BOP's.
The operator needed to achieve zonal isolation across shallow hydrocarbon-bearing sands and to reduce ECD's during cementing...
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.
While drilling an exploration well, an Operator encountered a narrow pore pressure/fracture gradient window that required using more casing strings than planned.
A major Middle East Operator experienced problems running expandable liners to isolate a zone of total loss circulation and tight spots, increasing the risk of stuck pipe. The addition of Expandable Bow-Spring Centralizers provided the solution with pre and post-expansion stand-off that allowed...
