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...

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.

A large independent Operator discovered several leaks and a parted section in the 7 in. production casing from 2,000 ft. to 500 ft. In order to fracture the well, casing integrity had to be restored to handle over 6,000 psi surface fracture pressure to ensure the well could become a viable asset...

In the Marcellus Shale, fracturing rates and pressures can be substantial, but there are other problems also associated with completing these wells, which can promote casing failure or compromise the pressureintegrity of a well. A...
