Objective

09/03/2007

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.

05/05/2006

Get back on planned drilling program and finish the well with an adequate hole size to evaluate potential production zones at TD.

11/09/2006

Install a high-collapse SET® expandable liner to case off the trouble zone.

04/19/2008

Isolate the trouble zone while conserving hole size by planning solid expandable technology into the well design; optimize wellbore trajectory and reduce risk in sidetrack drilling operations.

09/17/2008

Install a SET® Openhole solid expandable system fitted with injection-moulded composite standoff blades.

09/30/2000

As the oil and gas industry has matured, three broadreaching and long-standing issues that affect virtually every well have assumed heightened importance: conservation of hole size, hydraulic isolation of selected zones, and maximization of well life. All of these issues involve one of the...

  • 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.
05/02/2010

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®...
