The customer was sidetracking the well, and unable to run their 16-inch liner. The 13-5/8 inch and 11-3/4 inch casing were both set high, which would compromise the originally planned 8-1/2 inch hole size.

 

The operator selected a 9-5/8 x 11-3/4 in. SET®...

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...

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...
