The operator was already utilizing SET® systems in a well slimming program that reduced upper hole sizes thereby improving ROP and significantly reducing overall costs. To further save time, the need for underreaming and cementing the expandable system was eliminated by incorporating a...

SET technology is the result of a cold-working process that permanently deforms the pipe without any additional heat. The procedure inherent to expanding tubulars takes the steel beyond its elastic limit into the plastic region of the stress-strain curve, while remaining safely below ultimate...
