Get back on planned drilling program and finish the well with an adequate hole size to evaluate potential production zones at TD.
Install a high-collapse SET® expandable liner to case off the trouble zone.
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.
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.
