Install a SET® Openhole solid expandable system fitted with injection-moulded composite standoff blades.
- Operator was experiencing trouble formation caused by narrow pore pressure/fracture gradient window which caused casing to be set higher than planned.
- Operator decided that expandables were the way to go.
- All of the customer's operating objectives were met.
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®...
A major operator was sidetracking out of an existing well to a nearby reservoir.The first attempt to sidetrack utilizing a conventional casing design failed to reach the target depth and damaged the 13-3/8 in. casing.

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.
Offshore Denmark, Directional Well, 8 5/8 x 10 3/4
While drilling an exploration well, an Operator encountered a narrow pore pressure/fracture gradient window that required using more casing strings than planned.
