Get back on planned drilling program and finish the well with an adequate hole size to evaluate potential production zones at TD.
Drill through 200 feet of depleted sands, add a casing point and reach the pay target (measured depth between 11,000 to 13,000 feet) with adequate hole size while maintaining the smallest upper wellbore possible.
Making Enventure's Solid Expandables a part of the drilling plan enabled deep-water operators in the Mississippi Canyon to cut their previous drilling time from 140 days to just 48. Installing over 2700 feet of Solid Expandable liners running at depths up to 4100 feet allowed...
Optimize project economics, well design and drilling efficiency with application of SET solid expandable technology.
Isolate multiple zones while maximizing diameter by installing a SET Open-hole Liner with swellable elastomers. The maximum diameter would help reduce fluid friction during high-rate fracturing operations.
Install a 7-5/8 x 9-5/8 in. SET Openhole Liner (OHL) to isolate higher pressure zones so that mud weight could be reduced to combat lost circulation.
Two challenges facing operators as the energy industry moves into the next century are accessing of new reservoirs that currently cannot be reached economically and maintaining profitable production from older fields. Recent advances in one of the oldest and most fundamental areas of exploration...
Expandable-tubular technology involves a process that expands casing in oil wells drilled in especially challenging environments, such as deepwater. Until now, operators have had to use progressively smallerdiameter pipe as a well was drilled deeper; but expandable-tubular goods are designed for...
