Regain pressure integrity of the 7-3/4 in. production liner for stacked FracPac™ completion operations using Solid Expandable Tubular (SET™) technology.

Solid expandable tubular technology presents an opportunity to significantly boost the production capacity of wells by increasing the size of the completion. As such, it offers an economically attractive and environmentally friendly option to breathe new life into gas fields. It is flexible in...

A large independent Operator discovered several leaks and a parted section in the 7 in. production casing from 2,000 ft. to 500 ft. In order to fracture the well, casing integrity had to be restored to handle over 6,000 psi surface fracture pressure to ensure the well could become a viable asset...

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, in the Ardmore Basin, was unable to put a well onto first production due to casing damage at a 5½” to 4½” casing crossover.

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...
