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.
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.
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...
Challenge: Redevelop an established Gulf of Mexico deepwater field by accessing additional reserves.
The SET liner permanetly isolated the loss zone allowing the well to maximize reservoir contact.
Enventure’s process for running SET systems through window exits accommodates vertical, highly deviated, and horizontal wellbores (including extended reach wellbores).
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...
An Operator in the Permian Basin was drilling a directional well with plans to complete the well with 5-1/2 in. production casing in the lateral section. The customer had set the 9-5/8 in. casing at the kickoff point and had to drill an 8-3/4 in. hole through the curve and...
