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...

For years, the reduction of tubular inside diameter (ID), or “telescoping effect,” limited the exploration and production of oil and gas. Using conventional technology, operators faced significant loss of ID in the course of the normal drilling process, during reentry and deepening of existing...

Isolate a lower pressured oil production zone from other nearby higher pressured zones to mitigate cross-flow between the different reservoirs.

Larger SET® Systems were designed to mitigate the risks inherent in drilling complex and exploratory wells.

Larger solid expandable systems are planned as a basis-of-design (BOD) in the upper portion of the wellbore. This enables operators to maintain internal diameter (ID) early in the...
