Objective

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.

03/09/2004

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.

10/15/2008

Optimize project economics, well design and drilling efficiency with application of SET solid expandable technology.

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...

Save the wellbore by installing a SET® 7-5/8" x 9-5/8" 53.5# Openhole Liner over a 420.86 ft (128.28m) interval to isolate the weak section.

An major operator received one of the first post-Macondo permits to continue drilling an exploratory well in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico using subsea BOP's.

The operator needed to achieve zonal isolation across shallow hydrocarbon-bearing sands and to reduce ECD's during cementing...

Install a 13-3/8 x 16 in. 97.0 lb/ft openhole solid expandable tubular (SET®) system to extend the 16 in. casing section past the trouble zone—preserving the set point for the following 13-3/8 in. standard casing and enabling successful execution of the well plan.
