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.

Drill through 200 feet of depleted sands, add a casing point and reach the pay target (measured depth between 11,000 to 13,000 feet) with adequate hole size while maintaining the smallest upper wellbore possible.

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...

In the Marcellus Shale, fracturing rates and pressures can be substantial, but there are other problems also associated with completing these wells, which can promote casing failure or compromise the pressureintegrity of a well. A...

An Operator drilling a well in the Permian Basin needed a solution to isolate losses below their intermediate 9-5/8 in. casing string that was causing them to lose mud at a rate of 60 Bbls/hr., and achieve the required mud weight to drill the curve/lateral section of the well. After setting...

In openhole environments, SET® Systems provide a variety of solutions including mitigating risk, adding casing strings, and isolating trouble formations while retaining maximum internal diameter.

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...
