An operator needed to overcome drilling obstacles in their Gulf of Mexico, HPHT well.
Three SET® Systems were installed in this well and enabled the operator to reach the planned target.
Isolate a low fracture-gradient zone to enable an optimal completion.
Install a Solid Expandable Tubular (SET®) system to isolate the trouble zones. Retain hole size across all the depleted sands in a narrow pore pressure/fracture gradient environment....
The SET liner permanetly isolated the loss zone allowing the well to maximize reservoir contact.
3D seismic surveys identified deep exploratory pay interval targets below an existing field development. The Operator wanted to reach these potential pay targets by using the existing well infrastructure (by sidetracking) to drill deeper in the HPHT environment, while maintaining sufficient hole...
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...
