Using Solid Expandables in their drilling plan, operators in the Savell field cut drilling time in multiple installations from 94 to 74 days and increased the rate of penetration by 37%. Reduce field development costs by using available Solid Expandable Tubular (SET®) technology as a method to...

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...

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.

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...

The ESeal Liner provided the maximum flow area for injector fluids resulting in greater injection volumes and rates due to less friction pressure loss during injection.  The standard conventional scab liner is the 5 in. liner which provides a 4.481 in. ID., while the 5½ x 7 in. ESeal liner...

A Corrosion across the entire 1,100 ft. of 7 in. casing installed in a natural gas liquids (NGL) storage cavern risked NGL leakage into the surrounding formation.

In the first stage of the fracturing program, the uppermost fracture sleeve failed - leaving the economic viability of the wells at risk.

A major operator in the Eagle Ford began a well recovery program to re-activate over 30 wells that stopped producing due to compromised well integrity (leaks).
