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...

Install a 13-3/8 x 16 in. 97.0 lb/ft openhole solid expandable tubular (SET®) system to extend the 16 in. casing section past the trouble zone—preserving the set point for the following 13-3/8 in. standard casing and enabling successful execution of the well plan.

A major operator in the Eagle Ford began a well recovery program to re-activate over 30 wells that stopped producing due to compromised well integrity (leaks).

An Operator, in the Ardmore Basin, was unable to put a well onto first production due to casing damage at a 5½” to 4½” casing crossover.

An Operator, in the Permian, discovered they did not obtain cement coverage along the entire length of the lateral after cementing their production casing.
