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.

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.

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®...

A major operator was sidetracking out of an existing well to a nearby reservoir.The first attempt to sidetrack utilizing a conventional casing design failed to reach the target depth and damaged the 13-3/8 in. casing.

The casing design for a...
