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

09/12/2004

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...

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).

09/30/2013

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.

11/21/2013

An Operator, in the Permian, discovered they did not obtain cement coverage along the entire length of the lateral after cementing their production casing.
