Mitigate shale formations, in which loss of returns and sticking are common, by combining SET® expandable tubulars with sidetracking operations in order to reach additional reserves with optimized hole size.
BP experienced losses while drilling a development well due to weak sand formation directly below the 13-3/8in. shoe. Multiple attempts were made to stem the losses - all without success.
A solution was required to isolate the weak sand formation and enable drilling to continue with higher...
Isolate a lower pressured oil production zone from other nearby higher pressured zones to mitigate cross-flow between the different reservoirs.
The SET liner permanetly isolated the loss zone allowing the well to maximize reservoir contact.
An Operator planned to maximize production in a 30+-year-old well by directionally deepening the well to intersect an undeveloped reservoir. After the high-pressure formation was drilled, a 5-1/2 in. SET Openhole Liner (OHL) successfully isolated the formation while maintaining maximum wellbore...
